Lewis Hamilton wants to F1 retire after 2017

Lewis Hamilton could quit hih Formula 1 carier after this season.

While talking about  his finite “legacy” in the sport in conversation with the FIA magazine Auto, the triple world champion, Lewis Hamilton, said that he’ll maybe  join former teammate Nico Rosberg in retirement soon.

It’s not likely, but the triple world champion says his legacy is secure

  “My destiny is in my own hands,” Hamilton said. “I can decide to stop at the end of this year. 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.”

Despite all things, quitting F1 prematurely doesn’t seem like something that Hamilton would do particularly because he’s enjoying himself in 2017. And the 32-year-old says that’s not just because the cars are faster.

“Yeah, right now, it’s solely (more enjoyable because of) competition,” Hamilton said. “It’s also easier battling another team. 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.”
