Sky Sports F1’s Craig Slater says “it is still unclear whether Lewis Hamilton will be on the grid” in 2022 and provides an update from “a senior source”.

Lewis Hamilton has been silent since the end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, that saw race director Michael Masi ignore the rules of the Safety Car, which allowed Max Verstappen to easily win the 2021 title.

This, along with Toto Wolff’s comment that he ‘hopes’ Lewis will return to Formula 1 in 2022, has put the Briton’s future in the sport in doubt.

Since the incident the FIA announced they will perform an analysis of the controversial Safety Car decisions and the circumstances that led to them.

Sky Sports F1’s Craig Slater reports that Lewis’ future might depend on this investigation.

“With 69 days to go until the first Grand Prix in Bahrain, it is still unclear whether Lewis Hamilton will be on the grid,” Slater said.

“In terms of Hamilton coming back to Formula 1, having the appetite to do so and getting over the ‘disillusionment’ that his team boss Toto Wolff said he felt after Abu Dhabi, the onus is on the FIA to deliver on the pledge they made before Christmas to investigate the happenings on that final lap and to come up with some findings.

“It is understood that Mercedes want to see something tangible. It’s been put to me like this: the longer this drags on then the worse the Lewis Hamilton situation is.

“And that is from a senior source,” Slater concluded.
