Hamilton Reveals When He Will Consider Quitting F1
He began by divulging how there was a time when he was searching for the thing that he was most passionate about
“I think we all struggle with something. You have to discover what you are really passionate about and what you love to do. For me personally, there was a moment when that search became too serious”
“We only have one life and you have to enjoy what you do. You have to find happiness in it every day. When I stop in the car and drive out of the garage, I have a big smile on my face, even after all these years”
He signed off by revealing when he would consider quitting
“If one day I find that this is no longer the case, that I don't enjoy it anymore, that's when I'll consider quitting”
Williams’ George Russell has suggested that “Formula 1 is a hugely exhausting sport” as they “drive full throttle for two hours straight”
He further explained that “the physical strain is really huge and the mental fatigue that comes from all the information” they “have to take in” “makes everything really complicated”
Former F1 driver Gerhard Berger sees the Max Verstappen-Charles Leclerc “rivalry like that of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost”
He further explained that “Charles is a calmer person inside the cockpit, he drives feeling less emotion” like Prost, while “Verstappen instead is very aggressive, a bit like Ayrton”
He also feels that “Hamilton remains the most complete and competitive in the starting grid. He always knows how to read the situation perfectly and makes the most of his car on every lap”
He has “only seen this quality in Senna and Schumacher. The two of them, plus Lewis, are the strongest drivers who have ever driven in Formula 1”
Andrew Westacott, chairman of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation has pointed out that they “have 176 acres of outdoor space”
Which is why he doesn’t “see why there couldn't be an audience” during the Australian GP “as long as” they “use QR codes and make sure everything can be tracked”
Williams’ former deputy team principal Claire Williams feels that the team “got a lot of support, even when things were down, but at one point, public opinion did turn a little against” her
She, however, feels that it “was justified” as she “was the leader, and ultimately” she was “responsible”
She further admits that “the last three years were very difficult, but there were extenuating circumstances”
Red Bull’s Sergio Perez “noticed that” he “was alone” early on in his racing career and he “often thought, 'Formula 1 is too far away”, he'd “better go home and live a normal life”
However, his “family convinced” him “to stay”. His “determination did the rest”
He also feels that the pre-season test in Bahrain “will help” him “a little more, because” they “will do the test and then” they “will do the race there”
He also thinks that they “definitely have to narrow the gap with Mercedes and hopefully be able to beat them with both cars on a regular basis”
Former F1 driver Giedo van der Garde is of the opinion that “it's fine what” Lewis Hamilton “does on the track, but he's become a bit of a boring guy” off it
Did Claire Williams deserve the criticism she received as team principal?
