Hamilton denies rumors about his possible retirement from F1

The seven-time world champion disappeared from the public eye after losing the title last year at the end of a controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton made no public comment on everything that happened at Yas Marina, as his boss at Mercedes, Toto Wolff , made it clear he was “disappointed”.

That sparked rumors that the Briton was contemplating retiring from Formula 1 after feeling the sport had lost credibility because of what happened.

However, on Friday during the unveiling of the new Mercedes W13 at Silverstone, Hamilton explained that while he needed to get away from it all for a while, he quickly came to the conclusion that he would return to racing in a ready-to-go frame of mind. the battle.

“I never, ever said I was going to stop,” Hamilton said. “I love doing what I do, it is a privilege to work with this great group of people.

“You really feel like you’re part of a team and part of a family, working toward a common goal. There’s no other feeling like it.”

“But yeah…it was obviously a tough time personally and it was a time where I really needed to step back and focus on myself. I had my family around me and I was able to create great moments.”

“But I finally got to a point where I decided I was going to go all out for another season, working hand-in-hand with Toto and George [Russell].”

“It’s exciting to see George come in with all his energy, I can already feel it within the team. I think it’s going to be an exciting season.”

Mercedes’ presentation came a day after the FIA announced the conclusions of its investigation into what happened at the Abu Dhabi GP.

Beyond removing hitherto F1 race director Michael Masi from his post, the governing body confirmed the creation of a virtual race control room (similar to VAR in football), as well as readjusting the rules of the racing car. security to avoid future problems.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff , who held the FIA squarely responsible for “mistakes” at the Abu Dhabi GP, said he welcomed their response.

“I think it is very important to see that the necessary measures have been taken,” Wolff said during the presentation of the W13.

“Now there is a much more robust structure, with more support for the race director. The FIA has stated that there will be a state-of-the-art virtual race control room, and that the new guys will already be in place at the Barcelona tests. I think the right steps”, said the team manager to end the act.
