The Briton has yet to renew the contract with Mercedes Benz and cast doubt on his future. Are you retiring?
Lewis Hamilton was ecstatic after getting in Imola his 93rd victory in Formula 1, where he is on his way to achieving his seventh title and thus catch up with Michael Schumacher, whom he has already surpassed in races won. However, he still did not renew for the next season with Mercedes and questioned its continuity.
“I don’t even know if I’ll be here next year, so it’s not really a concern for me at the moment, “said the Brit, whose contract with Mercedes Benz ends at the end of the year. And motorsport went into shock.
“We have a lot of deep conversations, Toto (Wolff) and I, so I’m very aware of where he is mentally, and we share a lot and carry a lot of weight together. I’ve been here a long, long time. I can definitely understand wanting to go back a little and give. more time with the family and that kind of thing, “Hamilton surprised the world.
He added: “There are many things that remain in my mind. I would like to be here next year, but no guarantee of that for sure. There are many things that excite me about life outside, so time will tell. “
Mercedes boss Wolff spoke on the subject: “I guess if I did decide to quit Formula 1, which I don’t think is going to happen and I hope it won’t, then I think we’re going to have a pretty hectic driver market out there.”
Anyway, he put cold cloths on the situation. “I think it’s time, it’s the emotions. We are all happy, but also very tired. It’s the same for me. I completely identify with your feeling, that you question yourself, that you think about all the other things that matter and When you turn the news on in the morning and turn it off in the afternoon, it’s all about the struggles we all face, “he added.
“We are here in our happy little place, but we try to bring some entertainment home. But then you return to a more difficult reality the next day. All of that is something that affects us. And in that sense, it is normal for someone who has empathy have these feelings, “he concluded.
