Three time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton who is on the verge of winning his fourth championship this weekend in Mexico says he has no interest in racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series or any other form of Motorsport.
The Mercedes driver believes that switching series would be a step down and he is happy where he is. Speaking to the Express ahead of this weekend’s race, Hamilton said he has other passions outside of racing that he wants to pursue when he hangs up his helmet whenever that time comes and doesn’t want to compete elsewhere.
Hamilton said that he was excited to see Fernando Alonso race in the Indianapolis 500 in May but would not be interested in competing in the most famous motor race of them all but respected the Verizon IndyCar Series drivers.
Hamilton also said that he would not be interested in racing at the LeMans 24 Hours. Fernando Alonso will compete in the Daytona 24 Hours race with United Autosports alongside Lando Norris in January with McLaren Executive Director Zak Brown who owns United Autosports revealing this week that Alonso asked about Daytona two minutes after signing his new contract to race with McLaren in Formula One from 2018.
Hamilton has had an incredible 2017 Formula One season having taken nine wins so far, his most recent one coming in the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas last weekend.
