Hamilton remains cryptic about F1 future – “Now I have a different feel”

Lewis Hamilton remained cryptic about his F1 future, saying that there is probably a change in perception.

Hamilton was hard done at the final race of the season in an absolutely outrageous manner. The sight of the man slumping in his car struggling to take in what had happened to him was painful to see, given that injustice had triumphed on the day.

Fans didn’t see him for quite a few days after that, until his knighthood and subsequent visit of the Mercedes factory. Nevertheless, his future is still very much up in the air, and he hasn’t done anything to clear it up either.

Hamilton remained cryptic about his F1 future, and suggested that he feels differently about the sport at this moment in time.

In an interview with Town and Country Mag, he said: “When I was younger, all I could think about was training and winning and being the best I could be. Now I have a different feel.

When asked if he is focused on winning only, the British Knight replied, “That’s the million dollar question, really. Yes, I want to win but I’m in a place where I really want to see everyone succeed.”

More than racing

“I was like, ‘I don’t want to be a driver that you hire and it’s kind of a service relationship’,” he continued.

“I don’t want to just make you guys successful in the race.

“How can we be impactful and help people? Now, with the commission’s findings, we can see some of the reasons racing lacks diversity and we’re working together as a sport to create a better pipeline.

“And as a team, we’re leading the effort.”
