HAMILTON IS A HUGE FIGURE IN THE SPORT, IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO RETIRE – BRAWN
The number one in motorsport for Liberty Media Ross Brawn believes that Sir Lewis is absolutely not worth retiring.
F1 managing director Ross Brawn says, while Lewis Hamilton’s contract is up to Lewis and Mercedes, he is sure a deal will be reached.
The F1 world is still waiting for Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes to announce a contract extension for 2021 and (possibly) beyond. Ross Brawn believes a new deal is inevitable.
“It’s up to Mercedes and Lewis to find their solution, but it would be a great shame for Lewis [to stop racing in Formula 1],” the Briton told RACER.
“I don’t imagine for a moment that it’s going to happen. I think Lewis loves the sport too much, Mercedes like Lewis too much.
“There’s a bit of jousting going on, clearly, between Toto [Wolff] and Lewis, and that’s all part of the entertainment! But we want Lewis to continue, he’s a huge figure in the sport.
“He’s made people think – particularly this past year – on a number of issues which are associated with the sport but are perhaps not the focus of what we normally do, but things that are very important and have made people think and consider their approaches and attitudes. That’s been invaluable.
“He is an influential character, he’s good for our sport and probably one of the few megastars that we have in Formula 1 today. So for all sorts of reasons we want him to continue and I want him to continue.
“He’s got a record to break as well and I think driving for Mercedes is his best chance of doing it,” concluded Brawn.
