considered retiring many times’ – Hamilton confesses he lost faith in F1 and nearly quit after Abu Dhabi controversy

LEWIS HAMILTON says he lost his faith in F1 and contemplated quitting after the controversial end to last season. Hamilton was leading the Abu Dhabi GP when the safety car was deployed in the final laps of the race. Hamilton was a sitting duck and passed by the Dutchman, who won the race and the title – plunging the sport into controversy. He said: “It was obviously a difficult time for me to be honest. “At the end of a season, you think and question whether you are willing to commit the time and the effort that it takes to be a world champion. Hamilton has refused to watch the race back and he does not remember what he said in the exchange with Verstappen immediately after the race. “Everything that’s been said by the FIA, I welcome that but we have to make sure that we keep a close eye and make sure that we actually are seeing those changes.
