Formula 1 news | Jackie Stewart believes Lewis Hamilton should retire

Lewis Hamilton should retire from Formula 1 and focus on his business interests and endorsements, according to three-time world champion Jackie Stewart.

Speaking in The Convex Conversation, Stewart said it was “a shame” Hamilton didn’t step down “when he was at the helm”.

“He has music, he has culture. He loves clothes and the rag trade would be a perfect fit for him,” Stewart said.

“When it came time to leave McLaren it was Lewis Hamilton’s decision to go to Mercedes Benz because he saw the potential of what they had to offer.

“He’s won six world championships… he’s struggling a bit now because he had a new teammate who was faster than him in qualifying, which will be difficult for him.

“I think it’s time he resigned.”

Hamilton’s move from McLaren to Mercedes at the end of 2012 was considered a massive step backwards. He won his first race with the team at the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix.

Since then he has won 81 more races for the team, won six Drivers’ World Championships and helped Mercedes to eight consecutive Constructors’ World Championships.

So far in 2022, Hamilton is 2-7 behind in a head-to-head with new teammate George Russell. Unless Mercedes fixes the chronic porpoise the team has been battling all year, it also faces its first winless year since its Grand Prix debut in 2007.

Stewart said Hamilton proved to be one of the best the sport has ever seen and will be remembered as a legend.

“Lewis is in that group of the Ayrton Sennas and the Alain Prosts – or maybe even the Jackie Stewart – but he’s carried the sport very well.

“I’d like to see him step down now. It’s a shame he didn’t step down at the top but I don’t think that’s going to happen now.

“Even so, quitting is wiser than going through all the pain of not being able to do what you did before.”
