HAM to tie SCH with 7 F1 WDC's in 2020....how many more for HAM??

-HAM is a 35 yo highly functioning F1 pilot
-HAM is a 35 yo when he wins his 7th F1 WDC
-SCH was 35 yo when he won his 7th F1 WDC

-How many more yrs will HAM drive in F1?

-How many F1 WDC's will HAM achieve when he hangs up his helmet?


Offer your thoughts and perspectives.

I think he will go for 8, and then retire. By then he will have over 110 wins, and be the first to beat MS record. This way he will solidify his achievement in both metrics, and consider this as a proverbial bird to his haters.

Than he can enjoy almost a decade before he could be dethroned. Or longer.

Thatís what I would do in his shoes.

Your comments are a great plan - that would place HAM in very rarified air.

Great thread.

Here is my prediction:

9-10 WDCs

117-120 wins. 125-130 poles.

He will sign a 3 year contract and hang it up thereafter. If he averages 8-9 wins per season, the number is easily doable.

At that point, it will take someone to have a nearly 20 year run to exceed his performance. The math is very much against it but one never knows.

Hamilton has so many things he wants to do. IMO he's already lost the fire, he's just that much better than everyone else so keeps winning. He'll keep going long enough to secure his legacy, then hang it up. It's history that's important to him now, not so much racing.

Queue the excuses......


Iím thinking youíll see Hamilton sign a 1 year contract to give him flexibility to decide what to do after winning his 8th title.

I donít think heís lost the fire. You see how upset he gets when he misses out on pole or when he gets penalized for dumb shit? I think heís just become more reserved and doesnít like to bitch on the radio. I miss Vettel getting on the radio and yelling and bitchin

That's just his competitive nature, he wants justice to ALWAYS be on his side, and life doesn't work that way (even if you're a golden boy).

He's lost the fire to drive for the sake of driving.

What makes you think that when his interviews say the exact opposite?

Skysports.

He's a team player, for now.

He's out as soon as he thinks it'll be many years before someone beats his record.

All speculative statements by the pundits.

That's the only excuse needed. Merc vs Red Bull. Everyone knows which car is better by a long shot.

It's not like the Merc vs Ferrari of previous years where the faster car wasn't clear over the course of the season.

Even Bottas with "grandmas racecraft" can push it to the pole and win some races .
At least if Toto agreed from behind the pitwall...
Mate .By this no excuses are required . Because these are facts , that the Benz just cruise to another victory ...
By this ...It just doesn't matter who is driving in the Benz !

Thank God that MAX can split them sometimes and win in the 18 km/h slower RB16 . Otherwise every race in this season was just a Benz race !
The rest ?
Is out of sight and just there for the show....

Facts mate ! Facts...

I think he'll sign a 2+1 contract to see if he likes the new regs in 2022. If not, then he'll retire with his head held high to pursue his other interests.
