Lewis Hamilton should be wise and retire from Formula One, says Sir Jackie Stewart – but Brit won’t stop until he wins record-breaking eighth title… so, who’s right? Sportsmail argues FOR and AGAINST the 37-year-old calling it a day

Lewis Hamilton, amid a season of disappointment so far with Mercedes way off the pace of Red Bull and Ferrari, is enduring one of the toughest moments of his career, of that there is no doubt. Eighth championship or not, he will go down as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, driver of all time. Even if the Mercedes does improve, with those drivers mentioned continuing to improve and reaching the peak of their careers, Hamilton will find it tougher than ever to win another championship. And after the opening nine races, Russell is ahead of Hamilton in the championship, though the 37-year-old has had his share of bad luck in races this season. It is a misconception to state at this point in his life that Hamilton’s primary focus lies away from racing.
