However, ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix he was asked if a title win would affect his decision to retire or remain in F1 beyond his current contract, which runs until the end of 2023.

That’s firstly a really tall order, and that’s not something that’s immediately at the forefront of my mind,” Hamilton said.

“I think we’re all sent these challenges through our through our journeys and through our lives and this is one that I’m really enjoying.

“I’m really enjoying spending more time with the team, deeper dives into engineering, into aero characteristics, development of the simulator and the simulation tools.

“I think it’s enabled me to become even more involved in development which is exciting. I think I still feel fresh and still feel young, to be honest, even though I’m around all these youngsters here.

“So, I don’t think that’s going to be the deciding factor whether I continue or not.

“I plan to be here,” concluded the Briton.
