Lewis Hamilton talks about his future in Formula 1 and says “the pandemic has probably shortened my expectations of how long I would want to stay”.

During the Dutch Grand Prix weekend Lewis Hamilton talked to Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport, and was asked if he knows how much longer he’ll be racing in Formula 1.

“I don’t. I can’t imagine too much longer, but it could change,” said the Briton.

“Every year you’re in a different place. Maybe we won’t be in a pandemic next year and things change.

“I would say the pandemic has probably shortened my expectations of how long I would want to stay, but things could change.

“What I do know is right now I love doing what I’m doing. I love still being here and hopefully deserve to still be here.”

Lewis was also asked what his best and worst qualities are.

“Let’s say my worst quality is probably that I hate losing. I don’t know… For sure, I’ve definitely got bad qualities. Everyone has bad qualities.

“I’m really bad at communicating, I’m really bad at staying in touch with people, I have a really bad memory.

“My best qualities? I would say… I like to think that I’m really good with kids. I love kids and family.”

Naturally this led to a question on when he thinks he’ll be ready to have children.

“Not while I’m racing. It’s hard enough with Roscoe [Lewis’ dog]! Roscoe is like my son. It’s hard enough just looking after him every day. I can barely look after myself,” Lewis joked.

“I don’t know. It depends [on] what kind of world we’re living in at that time. It’s difficult times around the world,” concluded the seven-time champion.
