McLaren chief casts doubts on Lewis Hamilton’s future

The seven-time champion’s future remains undecided after the driver was left angry and disillusioned with the sport having controversially lost the title to Max Verstappen in the 2021 season finale. Verstappen won his first F1 world championship at the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, beating Hamilton to the win under highly contentious circumstances. Verstappen overtook Hamilton for victory on the final lap after the FIA race director, Michael Masi, applied and adapted rules regarding the safety car that many perceived as incorrect and led to Hamilton being powerless to defend against the Dutchman. Maybe he has not made a decision and what he is doing is taking time to make that decision to make sure. Because once it’s made, it’s made, I don’t think we should rule it out or make light of it.”. Hamilton has not commented publicly since the race but Mercedes have indicated he will base any decision over his future on the conclusions and actions taken after the FIA inquiry.
