Lewis Hamilton will be unleashed at Silverstone, for the 2020 British Grand Prix, in first place in the drivers’ championship standings.
The Mercedes driver has dominated the world of Formula 1 for some time now, and the performance of the first season indicates that it will continue throughout 2020.
However, he has yet to sign a new contract with Mercedes that will keep him past this season. However, the 6-time world champion is confident that he will race for the next three years, at least.
Speaking to Autosport.com Hamilton provided fans with an insight into his future plans. He was also grateful for the lockout as it gave him time to recharge his batteries.
Forced leisure is something that you feel is increasing your longevity in sports.
He said: “I would say that the COVID block ̵
“And that little free time was really a little breath. I have been given some renewed energy to go longer. I want to be able to perform at the level where I perform now, forever.
“So my goal is to keep delivering for as long as possible. So I see myself going on for at least three years. “
Lewis Hamilton hoped to return to a crowd full of Silverstone in 2021
The Briton is obviously disappointed that he will race on the home circuit without fans. Hope this doesn’t happen for the next year.
Hamilton said, “In the first place I don’t think you can guarantee anything, but I’m going to be here for sure. So, let’s cross our fingers, I’ll be here and we’ll have fans next year.”
Having fans on a circuit is definitely a blow to the arm for any F1 driver. But in these test times, some tough decisions have to be made, if the show goes on.
However, Lewis has a moral booster in the form of his racing record at Silverstone. Over the past six years, Hamilton has won 5 of his home Grand Prix, his worst result during that time period, a P2 in 2018.
With Hamilton settling into his swagger, you definitely won’t bet against him to win the British Grand Prix.
