Lewis Hamilton comments on the possibility of Max Verstappen becoming the 2022 champion in Singapore and says “it’s never great when the season finishes early, even when I’ve experienced having it finish early”.
At the Singapore Grand Prix, Max Verstappen will have a chance to end the 2022 title fight and become the champion with five races to go.
At the Thursday press conference, Hamilton was asked to give his thoughts on this possibility.
“From my point of view, I’m not really thinking much about it,” the Briton said.
“Definitely I feel for the fans because for everyone, and even for us last year, going right down to the wire, that was intense for everybody.
“So it’s never great when the season finishes early. Even when I’ve experienced having it finish early in places like Mexico.

“For you as the one individual, it’s great, but for the actual sport, it’s not spectacular.”
Lewis also referenced his first F1 title win in 2008, when he became the champion on the last corner of the last lap, of the last race of the season.
“I’m really grateful to have had 2008 right down to the last 17 seconds, and obviously last year, pretty much the same thing.
“Let’s hope for the future that it’s a bit better,” Hamilton concluded.
