Four-time Formula 1 champion Alain Prost says he believes Lewis Hamilton “might want to take on” the challenge of the ‘new rules’ 2022 season.

The Formula 1 world is still speculating about Lewis Hamilton’s participation in the 2022 season. He Briton has not been heard from publicly since the controversial ending of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Naturally, the media is regularly asking current and former F1 personalities to give their thoughts on the situation. One of the people asked was the legendary four-time Formula 1 champion Alain Prost.

“It’s hard to put yourself in his shoes,” Prost told Le Journal du Dimanche.

“He surely has as many reasons to stop as to continue. It’s fifty-fifty. He’s taken a big blow to the head, but it would be really sad if he wasn’t here this season.”

However, Prost believes the challenge of new Formula 1 rules might be alluring to Lewis.

“I want to stay optimistic because there’s this eighth title to go and this new technical regulation, with maybe three teams at the top and four or five drivers vying for the title.

“That’s a challenge that Hamilton might want to take on,” the Frenchman concluded.
