There’s a saying: you stay as long as you can. I’m not quite sure about that exactly but there is a lot of life left beyond it [Formula One]. Things that I’ve missed in life. I was talking to my best friend the other day about things I envy or look forward to, like living in one place, a routine, my family. Each year I stay in the sport, I delay those things.”
Being part of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team has given Hamilton an incredible life of course, and massive personal wealth estimated to be in the region of £130 million. Hamilton admitted it’ll be tough to hang up his racing suit. “You can’t come back to F1. Whatever happens, you are gonna miss it. If it’s next year, if it’s five years from now, you’re gonna miss it when you finish.”
As the four-time world champion inks a deal to front Tommy Hilfiger menswear, Hamilton spoke about his admiration for those working in the fashion business, his personal style, and what has kept him going season after season for almost 12 years.
