Lewis Hamilton says he is determined to race in Formula 1 for as long as possible so he does not “squander” his opportunity to keep winning.
The Mercedes driver has won four of the first six races this year and is 14 victories short of Michael Schumacher’s record of 91 grand prix wins.
“Michael retired when he was 38. I’m 33,” said the five-time world champion.
“I can definitely do five years. I’ve got to keep going for as long as I can basically – until I’m not enjoying it.”
Hamilton, who is actually 34 and was speaking on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman on Netflix, has won four of the past five World Championships.
