Hamilton: I want to be embracing and encouraging the next youngsters

Lewis Hamilton is keen to support and continue to encourage the young generation in the coming years to achieve strong performances in Formula 1. That is what he said in the media after winning the Turkish Grand Prix.

"However, I couldn’t have done this without that amazing group of people behind me", Hamilton thanks his family and his team at the press conference. The Britishman has set himself a special goal after winning his seventh world title.

Encouraging young drivers

"I do notice that there are these interesting comments from past drivers, particularly. I really, really promise you, and hope that I stand by my word, when I stop in ten, 20 years from now and look back, I want to be embracing and encouraging the next youngsters that are here, whether it’s Lando, whether its George, whoever it may be, whether it’s Max."

The Mercedes driver knows better than anyone that sometimes Formula 1 can be tough and sometimes you have to be a bit lucky. "I know how hard it is to do the job and I know how this world works. Of course you have to have a good team and of course you have to have a great car. There is no driver that’s ever won – really won – the Championship in the past without it."
