The future of Lewis Hamilton remains uncertain. The Briton has not yet announced whether he will continue in Formula 1, but according to Germany Bild, it is less excited about the team’s appearance.
Little was heard from Hamilton after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The seven-time world champion is frustrated after losing his eighth world title but is already considering leaving Formula 1, according to several sources. However, this appears to be more than a tool to put pressure on the FIA.
When Mercedes-Benz was out to protest the result of the last Grand Prix, it withdrew its protest on the condition that the FIA investigate the race and ensure that it is not repeated in the future. Everything is happening in the background, but the FIA hasn’t taken big steps yet.
As it became known this week, Hamilton has not yet decided whether he will remain active in Formula 1 in 2022. He’s basically waiting for the FIA action which is still on the way. However, this seems to be putting more pressure on the FIA than the British are really considering resigning. Despite rumors about a possible successor, the German newspaper Bild reports that Mercedes is not looking for a replacement for the star driver. If Hamilton really wants to leave F1, expect Mercedes to leave at least a few streaks. But that is not the case.
