Lewis Hamilton says he is fully focused on his Formula 1 career, and adds “we obviously have a championship that we need to get back”.

Recently, Lewis Hamilton has been very vocal about extending his Formula 1 career, and he even said he is gearing up for a new “multi-year contract” with Mercedes.

In a talk with The Independent, Lewis said his focus is still fully on Formula 1.

“I am not in a relationship, I don’t have kids, my car is my baby,” the Briton said.

“If we’d have a year like last year and we were competing at the front all year, who knows where I would be?

“Each year you have to ask yourself if you’re willing to give as much if not more than you did when you first started. Are you willing to give up all your time to prepare and train and work with the team and deliver?

“If there’s ever a moment that I’m arriving and I’m just coasting along, then that’s when I don’t belong here, and don’t deserve the position here, and that’s when I should stop.

“I question myself as to whether I’m able to do that and whether I want to do that, and the answer is yes.

“We obviously have a championship that we need to get back, and I love the mission and that challenge with my team.”

Despite Mercedes’ issues in 2022, Lewis has no doubt that the team will get back to its winning ways.

“It’s been beautiful to see the journey that everyone individually has gone on, but also collectively how we’ve gelled together, pooled together, pulled up closer to each other, been more open.

“With a room really full of men most often, them showing more of their vulnerability, that’s been a really interesting process, and I’m grateful to be a part of it.

“I can’t wait for the time that we get back to success, that we finally get that win and we get that championship.

“It’s going to make all these tough moments worthwhile,” the Briton concluded.
