After winning 100 races, seven-championships, and breaking every important record in Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton says he still has more dreams and aspirations.

In an interview with Sky Italia Lewis Hamilton spoke about his record-breaking career. Asked if he felt he can now be considered a legend, Lewis disagreed.

“I don’t feel like I’m a legend,” said the Briton.

“I’m still involved. I try to be the best every weekend. It is never easy. I always try to refine and be creative with the setup of the car, every weekend, every race, every season.”

However, despite his enormous success, Lewis says he still has dreams and aspirations.

“Sure, I certainly have. You should never stop dreaming, right? Every year I make a list of things I want to achieve, maybe I’ve tried ten and got two. Or just one!

“So some things end up on next year’s list, but the dream is pretty much the same every year.”

This year that dream has to do with his fight for equality.

“The dream that drives me this year is to make this sport more open, more inclusive, a new path dedicated to engineers and other people who, otherwise, could not even dream of being part of this sport.

“I wish all teams were part of it. We live in a world where many people are unaware of what is happening and other people think that if something doesn’t concern you, you don’t have to do anything.

“We live in a world where it is important to make your voice heard. It is crazy to hear certain news, such as the restriction of women’s rights to abortion in the United States, it’s crazy, isn’t it?

“And even if as a man it does not concern me directly, it is fair to talk about it. It is right to give your support and be part of a generation that pushes for change.

“This can be done for any topic, such as climate change and human rights,” concluded the seven-time champion.
