Hamilton, who may be starting to consider retirement, recently admitted he will remain interested in the sport and doesn’t want to be a retired driver who hunts down riders.
He told Viaplay: “I will always be plugged into this sport, I will always be watching.”
‘I always want to be someone who is positive towards the drivers that are here, good or bad, because you know how hard it is to start, and how bad it can be and how the days can be good and how people can be negative about you.
“I never want to be one of those riders who does that, because we’ve been through it.”
