Lewis Hamilton should consider retiring, at least according to and Formula 1 great Jackie Stewart.
Hamilton hasn’t had a great season by his standards, leading many to believe that his time in the sport could be up.
“It’s time,” Stewart said, as reported by GPFans. “I’m sure he’ll be very successful because he’s been making a great deal of money, rightly so because he’s been the best of his time.
“Lewis is in that group with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost… or maybe even Jackie Stewart.
“It’s a shame he didn’t quit at the top, but I don’t think that’s going to happen now.”
Stewart believes Hamilton has nothing left to prove, which is why it’s the right time for him to say farewell to F1.
“He’s struggling a bit now because he has a new teammate who has been faster than him in qualifying so far, which will be difficult for him to handle,” Stewart said ofthe Hamilton–George Russell rivalry.
In the 2022 World Championship drivers’ standings, Hamilton holds sixth place with 77 points.
All of this comes after he was about to extend his legend last year. However, Max Verstappen edged him then and has pushed on again this year.
