After coming agonisingly close to greatness in 2021, history shows Lewis Hamilton THRIVES following his career near-misses – last year’s cruel blow will only fuel his fire for the fight and in 2022, you’ll see a driver better than ever before

In viewing the highly-anticipated new series of Netflix’s Drive to Survive, it does not take long for Lewis Hamilton to set up his story arc. Can I still keep up with all the new kids that are coming?’. For all the podiums and race wins, the ultimate indication of motor racing greatness is that all-time World Championship leaderboard – and nobody knows it more than Hamilton. While ultimately the racing gods were against him come the finale in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton’s resistance in the gusts of wind are a feature of his 15-year Formula One career that is unmatchable. His £40m-a-year deal at Mercedes expires at the end of the 2023 season – an extension would mean he would race in Formula One into his 40th year. But until No 8 is in the bag, the GOAT status certified, nor is Hamilton.
