In the last hours Lewis hamilton had left in a blanket of doubts about his continuity in the Formula 1. The Briton said he was not at his best, and claimed that it won’t be long before he makes the decision to leave the activity.

I would like to be here next year, but there are no guarantees of that for sure. There are things that excite me about the outer life. Time will tell, “he said.
