It’s time for Louis Hamilton to end his F1 career.
Those words came from one of the UK’s biggest drivers – a few days before the UK GP on F1.
– It’s time for him to leave, says Jackie Stewart.
The three-time world champion turns 83 and has been a guest on the Podcast Convex Conversation.
– Stewart, who won the 1969, 1971 and 2973 World Cups, says he has some problems because he’s often a teammate a little faster than him.
He believes Hamilton missed the opportunity to retire at the height of his career last night.
– Along with Lewis, Ayrton Senna and Alain Frost, he is one of the best drivers in their generation. But I want to see him retire now, says Stewart.
– It’s a shame he did not retire at the peak of his life, I do not think he will do it now. But at the same time, it’s smarter to go out than you can do what you did before.
Council to Hamilton ahead of UK GP in F1
Instead, Stewart Hamilton suggests pursuing a completely different life:
– He has his music and he loves fashion. He will fit in the fashion scene and I hope he will succeed there too.
Hamilton, 37, has signed with Mercedes next season, and there are several drivers whose contracts expire after 2023. AlphaTauri has once again pointed out that Pierre Gasly has a contract for next season.

So now it’s time for UK GP on F1, this year it’s not Sprint Weekend, but rather a completely normal Race Weekend. However, there is a change in the structure.
F1 has re-introduced Thursday press conferences for some drivers, with drivers still on track, and to make Friday a little more manageable, some drivers will hold press conferences on Thursday.
It is said that it will not affect the training time on Friday though it will apply to half the ground.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at which tires Pirelli chose.
Over the weekend, I also posted a post to see which courses are ready for 2023 and which courses will actually disappear. That group includes Spa and Monaco. These are tracks similar to Silverstone since the 1950s, although UK GP has not always run on Silverstone. You can read more about it here.
Joel Granforce had a positive weekend in the UK. He competes in Formula 3, GB3, and finished two podium last week, and is now second in the championship behind his teammate Luke Browning.
– It’s a good weekend, and there are no complaints about dual stage seats, says Joel Granforce.
– We lost some Point In Luke this weekend, but halfway through the season it’s more or less right. It is completely open to the rest of the races and I feel very safe at the speed we have Opportunity. For this I am ready to fight Title!
The next round will be decided in about a month at the Spa-Francorschamps in Belgium.
In Kenya, on the other hand, it was a little difficult for Oliver Solberg. The WRC Sweden car had good speed, but big problems with powdered sand during the safari rally.
– I will not be my first gravel rally in the worst class
Forget it. Everything that could have gone completely wrong has gone wrong, Solberg said after finishing 10th overall in the competition.
Fifth place in Best Special Level SS13. In addition to the ten minutes extended due to issues, the Hyundai driver smoked for almost four minutes on time penalty.
– A little consolation is that it was much better than last year. We have a lot to do in the future, but it has reached the line of success. This is truly an achievement after all we have to go through. This is thanks to the mechanics and team. Without them, nothing is possible in this game. Now I look forward to new goals in the next match.
Decided in Estonia on July 14-17. Galley Rowanbere won the tournament in Kenya, his fourth victory at the World Rally Championships 2022.
