Lewis Hamilton unimpressed by plans to add more races to F1 calendar

Cassandra Castillo | 09 November, 2018, 10:12

Hamilton sealed his fifth drivers' title at the last race in Mexico.

"I think something went wrong, as in we didn't go and develop something in the right direction".

A street race in Vietnam will be added in 2020 and Liberty Media, the American conglomerate that now runs F1, is keen to expand their portfolio in America by adding multiple races.

Hamilton is not a fan, though, and has suggested he would leave the sport should further additions be made.

"I don't think he is going to want that, he is going to win one on his own, in his own way", added the 33-year-old, who clinched the drivers' title with two races to spare in Mexico last month. "I have not asked Valtteri if he would want that but he is not going to want that".

"I'm someone who really loves racing but the season is long".

"We have got the auto back to what we know and what we feel more comfortable with at the last two races", said Vettel in the Brazil paddock, "so hopefully we can keep that up and keep competitive here and in Abu Dhabi and give [Mercedes] a very hard time".

After facing mathematical elimination from 2018 Formula 1 constructor championship contention in the 19th race of the 21-race season, the Mexican Grand Prix, but not being eliminated in this race, Scuderia Ferrari are set to face mathematical elimination from constructor championship contention once again in the season's penultimate race, the Brazilian Grand Prix.

"All I can do is speak is for myself".

"You start preparing for next year as soon as the season is done, so getting your mind tuned is very hard".

"Getting your mind turned".

He said, however, that it was still tough to find time to switch off and recover.

And as they attempt to overhaul Mercedes' 55-point advantage in the constructors' standings with two races to go, that could prove key.

"Obviously, we're not in a good position, but we're still in it and we'll do our best..."

Sebastian Vettel says he is still committed to his personal "mission" of winning a title with Ferrari, despite another disappointing season with the Italian team. That said, when you've won five world drivers' championships, you probably have carte blanche to dress as you like.

"It makes no difference..."

"But I am really hopeful we get in the auto this weekend and it feels more normal and we are more competitive", Hamilton added.

With two races remaining on the 2018 schedule, a maximum of 86 points are on the table for each team, as race victories are worth 25 points and second place finishes are worth 18 points.
