After Sunday’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, which brought his 93rd F1 victory on Sunday, the 35-year-old Englishman spoke outright that he may not be in the sport again next year.
Of course, his boss, Toto Wolff, who was already looking for his own new Mercedes role, was asked about the astonishing statement.
“We’re all very happy, but at the same time we’re very tired, and so am I,” said the Austrian, who is the record-breaking seventh-time constructor in a row with the team.

“Like Lewis, I understand and feel the issues, that we think about other important things. But we want to continue this adventure together. We are not done yet, ”he continued.
Asked what would happen if Hamilton decided to retire at the end of the season, Wolff replied, “I don’t think so, but if it does, it would drive the pilot market crazy.”
