Formula 1 is all set to introduce a Miami Grand Prix from the 2019 season. The Miami City commission will vote on Thursday and confirm if Miami would indeed hold a grand prix from the next season.
And while Formula 1 Fans in the US would be ecstatic with the news, Hamilton isn’t too keen on competing in Miami, as he feels that he would end up losing it for sure.
The Brit feels that he would end up partying in Miami, something that could have a dire effect on the race result.
“My friends messaged me and told me about their plans to hold a grand prix in Miami,” Hamilton said.
“I said ’I’m not winning that one then because it’s a party town’.
“There will be lots of women there and lots of distractions – maybe it could be a none championship race?
“Maybe I will have to stay out of town.” he added.
Lewis Hamilton is having a mixed bag season this time round, but it seems like the tide has changed as he had the rub of the green in Baku.
Hamilton feels that the present season is probably the toughest of his career as the competition is so stiff. However, he was ‘grateful’ for the weekend in Baku, as he romped to a win despite not having been the quickest on track.
“Baku was definitely an interesting weekend but one I’m grateful for,” Hamilton said.
“I was at the factory yesterday and hopefully there’s something taken from that.
“It’s definitely the toughest season that I’ve ever competed in.
“There over 1,600 people in our team and they have been working extremely hard to correct the mistakes.” he added.
Hamilton is now gearing up for the rest of the season and he has quite a battle on his hands as Ferrari have outperformed Mercedes until now and Red Bull just need to keep their silly mistakes under check in order to challenge for the constructor’s championship.
