Last year, Max Verstappen took the win on the final race of the 2021 Formula 1 Season in what is said to be one of the most controversial moments of the sport. This resulted in him being crowned World Champion, but while many fans have expressed their distaste for what happened, Lewis has remained silent on the subject.
Lewis winning would have made him an 8-time world champion, but since he lost the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he’s made no comments to the press or on social media about what happened. In fact, he hasn’t posted at all, with his most recent post on Twitter being one from the race’s qualifying.

Hamilton currently has a contract with Mercedes that sees him race in the 2022 and 2023 seasons. But, after we all saw how the 2021 season came to an end, it’s been rumoured that Hamilton would be leaving the sport. To add more confusion to the situation, there are multiple sources backing both sides of this argument. However, this is nothing new for Hamilton, who is constantly being involved in such things.
We’ll have to wait to get confirmation from either Lewis or Mercedes on this question, but this brings us back to the recent tweet from the racing team.
Let us know what you think over on our IG
Alongside a photo of the popular racing driver, Mercedes posted the following caption: “Adversity causes some to break; others to break records.”
Hamilton has a number of records to his name, including 103 total wins and 103 total poles. Of course, the record they’re likely referencing is becoming an 8-time world champion, but he’ll have to race in 2022 to achieve this.
Currently, he shares the record of 7 with Michael Schumacher, so 2022 could be a notable year for the sport.
