Lewis Hamilton is totally focused on chasing the eighth F1 world title: the hep-champion was in Brackley yesterday to complete the preparation of the trip to Saudi Arabia which will take place in just over a week on the circuit built on the Jeddah waterfront. .
We know that the British driver does not like the simulator, but he is perfectly aware of how important this simulation tool is when it comes to discovering tracks where Formula 1 has never raced.
Lewis, therefore, willingly made himself available to the team not only to acquire the layout of a track that has the protections close to the asphalt surface like a citizen and the speeds of a very fast circuit, and to seek the set-up. base of the W12 which will be deliberated with minimal downforce. The indications that have emerged are also positive because the W12 number 44 will once again be fitted with the super-engine that had so impressed at Interlagos in the Brazilian GP.
Hamilton, however, also looks to his future not only as a driver: the Englishman has signed a two-year contract that will lead him to race alongside George Russell next year, so it is certainly not the short-term prospect that worries him. , what to do when he will hang the helmet on a nail.
The British has launched a series of social initiatives together with Mercedes that are supported by its Foundation “Mission 44”: Lewis has financed with a donation of 20 million pounds the projects that have been created with the “Star” to help minorities in the world.
But the bond of the hep-champion with Mercedes is deep (Lewis is finishing the ninth championship with Brackley’s team and will reach the decade next year) and he expects to deserve a role within the team in the future: he has started to talk about it with the Mercedes top management and it would be interesting to understand what his future involvement could be in a system that has given him immense satisfaction.
Lewis does not seem attracted only by a testimonial role, but seems driven by the desire to take on an active role in a system in which he feels perfectly integrated. What should we expect from him?
