Lewis Hamilton still believes that he has a chance to win an eighth world title before he hangs up his boots. Hamilton feels he will have another shot to take the crown, months after he lost it spectacularly to Max Verstappen.
Mercedes ace said that he still has faith that the team will provide him with a competitive car to challenge for the title soon. Hamilton gave his remarks when asked about how he would feel if he failed to secure the record-breaking milestone.
Lewis smiled as to told Canal+,
“No because firstly that’s not the current focus in the sense of I might have to. I remember when I got my first world title I was like, some people don’t even have one, so I was grateful for my one.
“Then I got a second, I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to have won seven. I think that’s surpassed my expectations, probably my dad’s expectations and anybody that saw me coming into the sport.
“But, I truly believe that I will be back fighting for a championship again. That’s what all the work I’m doing with the team is working towards and just got to be patient.
“If you ever let doubt in your mind, I don’t think it’s a positive, so that’s just my train of thought. And also I just believe in every single individual in this team and what they are trying to do, and what we are doing together both in the car and out the car.”
Throughout the season, Mercedes has found it difficult to keep up with the pace of the leaders but occasionally have come close to challenging for a win. Hamilton had race-winning pace at the British Grand Prix while he could have won at Zandvoort but a late Safety Car halted his charge.
