Hamilton Considered Quitting F1
Lewis Hamilton has declared in an exclusive interview with The BBC that he considered quitting F1.
The British driver, who is the current reigning World Champion admitted that some of the shine of being a racing driver had gone, and that when his reputation was being called into question it w as very difficult to continue racing every week.
“I wasn’t 100 percent sure I wanted to be here for the next five years,” Hamilton said
“There was so much going on. Do I want to be in the limelight with people slating me? Do I want be in the spotlight where I can’t even go… to go to the fish and chip shop or the cinema and have fun without people taking pictures of me?”
He has now confirmed that he is 100% committed to racing, and driving with McLaren.
It’s a shame he doesn’t enjoy his job, as I know myself and millions of others around the world would give anything to race an advanced F1 car at high speed every weekend….
