Lewis Hamilton - I Could Decide To Retire At The End Of This Year

Lewis Hamilton - I Could Decide To Retire At The End Of This Year

"My destiny is in my own hands. I can decide to stop at the end of this year," the 32-year-old said. "Does that mean my legacy is less great than it would be if I stop in five years' time? Who's to say?

"I don't like to plan for it because I don't know what's around the corner, I don't know what I'm going to do. Whatever I know I'm going to do, if I apply myself the way I've always applied myself in my racing and I apply it to anything else I want to do in life, or even if it's still in racing, I feel I can achieve great things.

"I'm never going to stop pushing the limits of whatever it is I do with myself and I'm always going to strive for greatness in whatever world it is that I'm in. So I think that mission or that mentality will create my legacy."

Referencing Rosberg's Retirement Earlier This Year, Hamilton said

"I can empathise, and really understand in some ways, the feeling of wanting to stop and do something different.

"Every now and then I have a thought of what I will do after Formula One. Then I see that car and I am like, 'I think I am going to stay'. I don't know how long I will stay, but I am still competitive, still hungry and still driving at my best."

Concerning This Year's Championship Competition

"Yeah, right now it's solely on competition. It feels the same car as last year [but now] we're just having a competition," Hamilton added to
Auto .

"If we're able to qualify the top 10 within half a second or something like that, now that's a fri**in' race. Maybe top five within a few tenths of a second, that's racing man, because then every millimetre, every metre of braking counts… Everything counts even more than before, and right now it's even more the case than before.

"It's also easier battling another team. There's a whole mental shift, the whole team's dynamic shifts in a powerful way. When [the competition] is all within a team it's just like a big vortex, and depending on the tension it gets stronger and stronger and is actually not really what a team is built to be.

"Now having another team [to fight] we are pulling together with that same drive - it's just so much more powerful, it's really awesome."
