Lewis Hamilton says he doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon, as he has “a lot of work to do, a lot to achieve still”.

After Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff already indicated that Lewis Hamilton thinks he still has five more years in Formula 1, ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix the Briton said he isn’t even considering retirement yet.

“I plan on staying longer, it’s just not set in stone how long,” Hamilton said.

Lewis then said he hasn’t spoken to Wolff about his comments, but he definitely plans on staying in F1 for a while.

“I’m feeling good. I love what I’m doing. We have a lot of work to do, a lot to achieve still. So I’m not planning on going anywhere, any time soon.”

However, the Briton says he will not stay only for his on-track work, but also his work off the track, more specifically his efforts to increase diversity and inclusion.

“There’s a lot of work that still needs to be done in this sport. I can’t retire now because I’m only just embarking in helping shift and create a more open and inclusive environment here in this sport.

“And I’ve got to stay to help that continue,” he concluded.
