Lord Peter Hain says he expects Lewis Hamilton to return in 2022 “to make sure he puts right the wrong that was done to him”.

UK’s Vice-Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Formula 1 Lord Peter Hain, gave his comments on the possibility that Lewis Hamilton might not return to F1 in 2022, due to the unjust ending of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“He has got a contract for another two years,” Hain told Express.co.uk.

“I think all of his fans, including me, will hope and expect he comes back to make sure he puts right the wrong that was done to him.

“I’m hoping he will, by his sheer ability, overcome this. He has overcome racism, prejudice. He’s come from a very humble background with an extraordinary father.

“He’s the poor black kid who made it to the top. Most of the other drivers come from very comfortable backgrounds. That’s no criticism of them.

“I think he will be back. Formula 1 will be massively, massively damaged if he doesn’t. He will retire at some point in the next few years of course.

“Formula 1 will have been boosted by his contribution to his sport. There’s no other Formula 1 champion who has had a greater reach into the average citizen right across the world than Lewis,” Hain concluded.
