While many questions are being asked about Lewis Hamilton’s future, former Formula 1 Champion Alain Prost has spoken out about the British drivers’ case and why he might be finished with F1.
Lewis Hamilton is under contract with Mercedes until 2023, but he may not live up to his commitment. Following the British driver’s defeat by Max Verstappen, the future of the seven-time world champion has been called into question.
For several weeks now, there has been a lot of talk about a possible retirement for Lewis Hamilton and for the time being, it remains unclear what the Englishman’s real intentions are.
The future of Lewis Hamilton is therefore at the centre of all discussions. And an interview in the French publication ‘Le Journal Du Dimanche’, Alain Prost spoke about the issue. Concerning the Mercedes driver, he said:
“It’s difficult to put yourself in his shoes. He surely has as many reasons to stop as to continue. He’s taken a big blow to the head and he could be finished, but it would be really sad if he wasn’t here this season.
“I want to stay optimistic because there’s this eighth title to go and this new technical regulation, with maybe three teams on point and four or five drivers vying for the title. It’s a challenge that Hamilton might want to take on.”
