Lewis Hamilton suffered the most heartbreaking scenario of his life after the final lap of the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP. His lifelong dream of clinching the elusive eighth championship title slipped from his hands in the dying embers. The Brit self-isolated after the harrowing reality hit him. However, if we are to listen to Hamilton now, the Mercedes man has clearly nursed his wounds. Hamilton’s recent comments showcase how he would like to prioritise Formula 1 and relive the agony of the 2021 season in a bid to end Max Verstappen’s dominance.
Don’t get him wrong; it’s not just because his ardent rival is dominating. Hamilton’s idealistic approach wants to end this tyrannical rule over the world of Formula 1. Hamilton recognises that he and even Michael Schumacher are leaders in this rule. However, no more! Speaking to SoyMotor.com, Hamilton communicated his desire to see this scenario change.
“Max and his team have done an incredible job, and they deserve all the success. It’s about not repeating my period or Schumacher’s. We have to keep improving to have tighter fights for the World Cup. What a title! It’s open and it’s decided in the last race, it’s the best thing that can happen to you, it’s incredible, and the more teams there, the better,” Hamilton said.
This isn’t the first time Hamilton has communicated this desire, either. The Brit can also rest easy knowing the sport recognised its mistake in the judgement error made during the 2021 GP if a similar scenario comes up again.
The sport openly admitted to making an error in judgement with their call during the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP. The lawmakers referred to the history-altering choice as a “human error.” However, after this unacceptable admission, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali admitted to doing better in the future.
Domenicali said, “I would say a strong word, we will, because I feel that everyone has to do their own job, but the credibility of that is really related to all of that, making sure that there will be no holds on that, and it’s true what you’re saying, I mean these things shouldn’t happen, and for the benefit of the sport, we need to make sure that everyone is doing their own job.”
