‘My goal is to continue with Mercedes’: Lewis Hamilton confirms plans to ‘sit down and discuss’ a contract extension to take him into his 40s… as seven-time world champion puts an end to rumours that the was ready to RETIRE from F1

Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he wants to extend his Formula One career at least up to his 40th birthday. Hamilton, who turns 38 in January and holds pretty much every record in the sport, said: ‘I want to keep racing. I’ve been doing it for 30 years and I don’t feel that I should have to stop. Hamilton’s enthusiasm is undimmed by the travails of his season, which has seen Mercedes struggle to compete with Red Bull’s all-round superiority and Ferrari’s outright speed, and the torture of missing out on the title last year to Max Verstappen in Abu Dhabi. Hamilton’s plan to drive on may not be entirely welcomed by his team-mate George Russell, who was brought in on the understanding that he would take over as No 1 when his fellow Briton retired.
