Hamilton told Vogue, “I’ll be lying if I said that I hadn’t thought about extending. I’m still on the mission, I’m still loving driving, I’m still being challenged by it. So I don’t really feel like I have to give it up anytime soon.”

Hamilton is at present in his fifteenth year contending in Formula One having set his career in motion at McLaren in 2007. He has since turned into the most successful driver in the sport’s history after winning 103 races and claiming seven world titles.

Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton’s first teammate in F1 was Fernando Alonso at McLaren.

However, he has been less competitive this season with his Mercedes group battling under the new guidelines. He sits only 6th in the World Driver’s Championship on 146 points, over 100 points behind arch-rival Max Verstappen. This has driven numerous pundits and allies to feel 2023 would be a characteristic end to his Formula One career, continuing on to permit more young blood to enter the game.

Be that as it may, he has hoped to subdue these ideas by affirming he is thinking about broadening his agreement at the Silver Arrows. The move would mean he would keep on driving until at least 40, replicating the record set by amazing Spaniard Alonso.

Alonso, who was Hamilton’s first partner in F1, has as of late marked a long-term agreement with Aston Martin meaning he will drive until he is no less than 43 years of age. He is set to surpass the record of the race starts set by Kimi Raikkonen at the Singapore Grand Prix with the Finn setting the record at 349 races only three in front of the Alpine driver’s 346.

Hamilton’s desire to encourage as many people from ethnic minority backgrounds to participate in sports may be a contributing factor in his decision to stay in the sport. The Mercedes driver strongly pushed for improved access and established the Hamilton Commission to thoroughly look into how to expand the prospects available in motorsport.
