His career 93. He won his Formula One victory in Imola at Lewis Hamilton, who also successfully contributed to Mercedes ’seventh design championship title.
But as sure as the present and successes are, the future looks so uncertain: the six-time world champion’s racing contract will expire at the end of the year, and so far neither he nor Toto Wolff has committed to continuing. Mercedes ’current team boss may even take on other roles on the championship team in the near future, which he himself talked about recently.
When Hamilton was asked about this after the victory, he made a surprising statement. “I don’t know if I’ll be here next year, it doesn’t affect me yet” – He told.
The British also revealed that they talk a lot to Wolff about the future of both of them and he knows what’s going on in his boss’s mind. “I’ve been here a long time. I understand perfectly if you want to step back a little and dedicate more time to family and other things. ”
“I don’t know who could replace him, but he’s a leader. He will not put in his place a man who is not fit for the task, who is not upset enough to do so. You will find the right person, which is why we are so successful, ”he praised his team.
Hamilton, returning to his previously dropped sentence, supplemented it. “We’re here, it’s already November. It’s crazy that Christmas isn’t that far away. I feel good, I feel strong and I would continue to do this for months to come. So I don’t even know. I want to stay here next year, but there is no guarantee. There are many things that excite me about life after Formula One. In time, everything will be revealed, ”the defending champion spoke about his future, not for the first time over the weekend.
