Season Champion Lewis Hamilton reveals his big plans after racing Life

Season Champion Lewis Hamilton reveals his big plans  after racing Life

Hamilton will turn 33 in January and will next year embark upon his 12th season, having sealed a fourth F1 World Drivers’ Championship in 2017.

The Brit has 62 Grand Prix wins to his name and has talked about chasing down Michael Schumacher’s record of 91, a feat that would take him at least another two years or at current pace, five.

However, Hamilton does not appear keen to race in F1 until he is 38 and has his eye on a number of other sectors.

“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.”

Hamilton is currently in contract talks with Mercedes, the team with whom he has won three of his four drivers’ titles since joining in 2013.

And while the former McLaren driver says he has no problem signing a renewal, he is beginning to consider when his end-point will come.

“I’ve currently got another year with the team and I do want to continue [after that], but I’m at that point where there’s that question,” Hamilton added.

“You can’t come back to F1. Whatever happens, you are gonna miss it.

“If it’s next year, if it’s five years from now, you’re gonna miss it when you finish.

“There’s a saying you stay as long as you can.

“I’m not quite sure about that exactly but there is a lot of life left beyond it.

“Things that I’ve missed in life.

“I was talking to my best friend the other day about things that I do envy or look forward to, like living in one place, getting a routine: ‘That’s my gym, I have game night with my friends here.’ My family.

“Each year I stay in the sport, I delay those things.”
