Hamilton would surely secure his status as Formula One’s greatest if he wins another title

The 36-year-old surpassed Michael Schumacher’s Grand Prix wins record last season as he romped to the championship to join the German legend on a record-equalling seven titles.

Having penned a new one-year deal for the 2021 season, Hamilton is gunning for another Drivers’ Championship which would see him overtake Schumacher and lead the way with eight titles.

“There’s more to life than racing, but for now he’s happy to do another year.”
