“And sometimes you wake up and think: ‘I can do other things all my life, there’s definitely more I want to achieve.”

Hamilton also stated that he hopes of finishing his career on a high note taking his eighth world championship. He said:

“Quitting as a world champion is, I think, a dream that every athlete has – and so do I.

“For me, motorsport is not the most important thing either. When I was a kid, maybe it was. Probably also when I came to Formula 1.

“Since I’ve been in my 30s, I’ve realised that it’s all about creating memories. With friends, with family.

“It’s about key memories with the people who mean the most to you. That’s what I focus on and plan things to create these moments. Because that’s what you take with you in the long run.”
