For the former 2009 world champion, Jenson Button, it is possible that Lewis Hamilton has already turned the page on his career in F1, he who has been struggling since the start of the season.

The situation should not be easy to manage for Lewis Hamilton… Accustomed to playing the leading roles, but above all to winning, the Briton has fallen into line since the start of this new F1 season, the fault in particular of his Mercedes team which did not negotiate the implementation of the new regulations as well as possible. Worse, the seven-time world champion suffers from the comparison with his teammate George Russell, much more comfortable than him at the wheel of the Silver Arrow.

“He is not used to driving a car that is not competitive”

It’s a big change for Lewis, he’s not used to driving a car that’s not competitive.”estimated Jenson Button in comments reported by Nextgen-Autoand add: He’s been fighting for the championship every year since 2014, and he now has a new teammate in George Russell, who is young and has been very competitive so far. It’s because George has a much better car than the one he had at Williams, it gave him the confidence to push harder. Lewis meanwhile is probably not confident in this car, and he needs to be if you want to get the most out of it. »

If he does not doubt for a moment that Lewis Hamilton would challenge for the title with a more efficient single-seater, Jenson Button fears that this downgrading will have an impact on the mind of his compatriot, of whom he was teammate between 2010 and 2012 at McLaren. So much so that he might be tempted to end his career earlier than expected, while he is still tied to Mercedes until 2023.

“Perhaps he considers his career to be over”

Lewis, as we all know, is one of the best in the world, maybe even the best in Formula 1, he recalled. He will become competitive again, at least if he wants to. That’s the whole question. Maybe he thinks his career is over and he wants to do something else. Who knows ? But if Lewis has a winning car, then he will win races. ». Which is far from being the case now…
