Hamilton: I don’t particularly see myself going anywhere else

Lewis Hamilton has reigned supreme since joining Mercedes and the six-time World Champion has revealed he could stay at the team post-retirement, admitting he couldn't see himself anywhere else.

Hamilton wrapped up his sixth Formula 1 WorHld Championship at the United States last time out, his third in as many years and his fifth since joining the Silver Arrows. The only blemish on his record in the last six years was in 2016 which was won by his then-teammate, Nico Rosberg.

The Brit is showing no signs of slowing and looks as if he could race for many years to come. However, as he gets older talk of retirement is inevitable and Hamilton gave a hint as to where his post F1 career lies.

“Nothing is set in stone but I definitely am enjoying what I’m doing right now and I see no reason in stopping because I love what I do,” Hamilton told Autosport.com.

“When there’s a challenge, a whole massive change in the regulations [in 2021], that’s a huge challenge for me as a driver to use my skills and the things I’ve learned over the years to help steer the team in the right direction to develop the fastest car and still develop consistencies and punch out performances.

“I don’t particularly see myself going anywhere else. I love being at Mercedes. I love being part of the brand and the history.

“The idea of staying with Mercedes – I’ve been with them since I was 13 years old, even beyond Formula 1 – and probably heavily involved within Daimler and beyond, is quite attractive.

“So, we’ll see how that goes.”
