Why all fans should appreciate Hamilton in F1 while the chance remains

OPINION: While Lewis Hamilton is seemingly not ready to embrace his approaching forties any time soon, there’s no escaping that he’s in the twilight of his time in Formula 1. It’s time to sit back and objectively consider his prowess behind the wheel rather than get bogged down in a bitter rivalry

"I'm 37, Jeez! I've still got a bit to go." Lewis Hamilton was more polite than he might have been when it was put to him that he'll be well into his forties if he wishes to continue racing against Max Verstappen, who now has a contract at Red Bull until the end of 2028.

But Hamilton dismissed that prospect when speaking on the final day of pre-season testing in Bahrain. The seven-time world champion quickly added: "I don't plan on being here close to that age. Hopefully I have some other fun things to get on with."
