A strong message on Lewis Hamilton’s future was made by a former F1 driver and fan of Lewis – With Lewis Hamilton’s future still under discussion by many, David Coulthard has given his opinion on the matter.
Lewis Hamilton’s defeat to Max Verstappen for the world championship Formula 1 title has cast a huge shadow over the British drivers’ future. While the Mercedes driver has disappeared from the radar with zero interviews and no social media activity, there are many rumours that the seven-time world champion may retire.
If no official answer has been given for the moment on the future of Lewis Hamilton, everyone has their opinion. An interview with the Telegraph, it is David Coulthard who is the latest to have given their opinion on this issue.
“I don’t think Abu Dhabi is going to change anything.”
“The big decision was when he signed the new two-year contract. I don’t think Abu Dhabi will change anything.” confirms Couthard,
“Of course he would have liked to win. But I think it was less of a shock for him than for Toto Wolff, the rest of the team or his fans,” he said of Lewis Hamilton’s future, which he expects to see again at the start of the 2022 season.
Hamilton is yet to commit to the 2022 season as he awaits the findings of the FIA investigation. TJ13 investigated who is the most likely candidate to replace him should he retire from F1.
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff believes he is ‘disillusioned’ with the sport, while McLaren CEO Zak Brown admitted he would not be surprised if the British driver opted to retire.
Coulthard believes the seven-time world champion is less bothered by the events that unfolded than people think.
“I think he will be bored with everyone saying to him, ‘You were robbed, Lewis!’ or ‘You’re the people’s champion, Lewis!’,” Coulthard told The Telegraph.
Perhaps even, Lewis would be shocked by some of the Ham-centric shocking and abusive comments against other F1 fans seen on this website over the last month or so?
