'We'll see about next year' – Lewis Hamilton hints he might not return for next F1 season in subtle retirement nod

LEWIS HAMILTON hinted he might not return for the next F1 season after a dramatic last-gap title loss to Max Verstappen.

The British superstar, 36, was caught on the final lap by his Red Bull rival in an astonishing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Mercedes man lost out on a record eighth world crown, which would have sealed his place as the greatest driver ever.

After the race, Hamilton said: "A big congratulations to Max and his team.

"I think we did an amazing job this year. My team worked so hard this whole year, it's been the most difficult of seasons.

"We gave it everything and never gave up and that's the most important thing.

"I've felt great in the car in the past couple of months. We're still in the pandemic and I just want everyone to stay safe and spend Christmas with their families.

"We'll see about next year."

Hamilton claimed his first world championship crown as a McLaren driver back in 2008 before moving to Mercedes to triumph again in 2014.
