Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali admits he hasn't spoken to Lewis Hamilton, but if it was down to him, retirement in the near future would be out of the question. Domenicali became only the third boss to take over F1 in it’s 70-year-history. Speaking to the Daily Mail ahead of testing, he praised the seven-time world champion for his work on and off track.
“I haven't asked Lewis how long he will go on," Domenicali stated. “He knows I want him to go on and on. He is incredible, at the top of his profession and that position gives him great credibility talking about other issues that are important to him. The fight on the track this year will not be easy. The level of the top drivers is the best it has ever been."
In his first full season in the job, Domenicali was quick to praise the line-up this season.
“Max Verstappen seems like an old guy because he has been around a long time, but he is just 22,” Domenicali continued. “Charles Leclerc at Ferrari is strong, Carlos Sainz has gone to Ferrari. There is Fernando Alonso back with Alpine. Sebastian Vettel is at Aston Martin and will want to show he is not the driver we saw last season. Lando Norris at McLaren. George Russell at Williams.”
