Hamilton vows not to quit F1 as talk of Ricciardo to Mercedes gathers pace

Ricciardo would not confirm or deny he was in talks with Mercedes but admitted he was exploring all possible options. Hamilton will turn 39 shortly after his current contract with Mercedes concludes at the end of next season and with the team off the pace this year, speculation has continued over whether he will race beyond 2023. “For years we have been going up and down with stories of retirement and stopping,” he said. “The truth is I am keeping every option for next year and for the future,” he said. Hamilton said he believed Ricciardo deserved better than to be a reserve driver at Mercedes but that he would welcome him if he joined the team.
