Lewis Hamilton explains why 2017 was his best EVER year of driving Hamilton explains why 2017 was his best EVER year of driving

Hamilton is surely on a roll after securing his fourth F1 World Drivers’ Championship a year after missing out behind to his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Ferrari’s Sebestian Vettel was meant to be his closest rival this year but after a fantastic first half, he fell short in the later half, thanks to reliability issues in the second half of the season.

According to Hamilton, this season was equal to his first F1 season, when he drove his McLaren to second place behind Kimi Raikkonen.

“This has definitely been my strongest year of driving,” Hamilton said.

Hamilton bagged nine Grand Prix victories in all to take his career tally to 62, second on the all-time list behind Michael Schumacher.

The legendary German remains 29 wins clear of Hamilton, which clearly means Hamilton has to be on the track for 2 or more seasons to seal that record.But at 32, he is already putting things in place for his life after racing.

“[I have] a lot of plans, a lot of things that you’ll see come together over the next couple of years,” Hamilton told the BBC.

“Some of them take massive planning. I’m really creating business opportunities outside.”Not politically. But definitely culturally.

“I think I am a big part of the culture I bring to F1, where I’m from.

“[It’s about] appreciating that more in other locations. Admiring that.

“The charity stuff I’ve done before, but I’m really starting to focus on the future as my time comes to an end in F1, putting things in place for that part of my future.”
