Hamilton on the end of his career: "It won't be much time anymore"

In an interview with

Sky Sports

, Hamilton said: “I would like to keep


, but I don't know how long that will be the case.

It definitely wo

n't be much time

before I stop.

That is why I am now in a phase in which I slowly have to find out what the

future will bring for me

. "

Now the

F1 dominator

had made more frequent

hints about the end of his career

in recent years


In the course of the


problems that were



into focus around the world, Hamilton posted

thoughtful messages that could certainly be interpreted as considerations regarding an approaching farewell.

This season, too, the only dark-skinned pilot

is leading the

field of 20 drivers

- not least on his initiative, there is a common

demonstration against racist excesses

before each race starts



Sebastian Vettel *


by his side.

Hamilton on the end of his career: "Haven't reached my peak yet"

He currently only sees the four-time world champion who once acted at eye level on the track when it comes to lapping.

Which will

probably hardly change

after his

move to Aston Martin *


Especially since Hamilton announced further great deeds in the said interview: “I think I have

not yet reached




I'm sure I'm in a good phase. "

But all he could say so far is "that I plan to be

here next year


Basically: “My future looks bright, no matter

what decision

I make.

But it also depends on the times, on my worth and on the team's plans. "

Of course, there is also the advanced age for a Formula 1 driver.

In the current field of drivers, only the 41-year-old

Kimi Räikkönen

has more life experience, but the Finn has to


for his cockpit at

Alfa Romeo

for 2021.

In return,

Fernando Alonso will

return next year

after two years of abstinence - the Spaniard will be 40 years old next summer.

This shows that in Formula 1, in addition to class - and with some less talented drivers the necessary dowry - experience is also required.

Above all, the

extensive rule changes from the 2022 season

- postponed

by one season

due to the

corona pandemic *

- could cause Hamilton to ponder. It is "exciting to see what the cars will look like", but at the same time there are "many, many questions that still have to be answered". Apparently also whether it will be the year after the farewell of the

king of Formula 1
