Mohammed Ben Sulayem has shared his thoughts about Lewis Hamilton’s possible Formula 1 exit ahead of the 2022 season.
After the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP where Hamilton lost the world championship to Max Verstappen on the final lap, Toto Wolff said that he hoped the Briton would not retire from the sport. Despite the rumors, the new FIA president believes that Hamilton will continue his career.
“No, I don’t think so, they are rumors…” Ben Sulayem told Marca.
“Has he declared that he will not return? No. When you are a driver, you speak for yourself and not what others say about you.
“I trust that this is not the case, Lewis is an important part of the sport and of F1, his achievements. Verstappen is there… I am sure we will find a very exciting F1 next season.”
