After breaking the record for most F1 wins, Lewis Hamilton pondered his future in the sport and wondered when is his performance “going to tip over”.
After winning the Portuguese Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton became the most successful Formula 1 driver in history (according to race wins). However, at 35-year-old, the Briton says he is sometimes wondering when his performance will start to drop off.
“I don’t believe in the saying ‘The sky’s the limit’, It’s just a saying,” said the Briton.
“It depends how much we want it, how much we want to continue to raise the bar and going by our history together, just the way we work, we don’t sit back on our results, we keep working, we keep elevating.
“I definitely sometimes wonder, you know, jeez I’m 35 years old. I still feel physically strong but you still wonder when is it going to tip over and [you] lose performance but showing by this, it’s not yet.”

Still, the six-time champion says he is not letting up yet.
“Every race feels like the first one. I don’t know how that’s possible after all these races but for me it does, just as challenging as the first, and I think there is a lot more for us to do.
“Especially as we’re in this crazy time of the pandemic. We’re in a crazy time with having to also utilise our position as a business, as a leader in the business for inclusivity, for diversity, there’s a lot of work to do.
“So, that keeps me inspired. My team-mates, who are continuously growing, my fans who are continuously learning through this process with us all, and our sport that is slowly changing, it’s a real special time.”
