Will Lewis Hamilton return?

After the controversial end to the 2021 F1 season, Hamilton hasn’t made a single appearance in the F1 media. The absence of the 37-year-old racing legend has the media wondering about his sudden retirement plans.

In response, the Briton himself did not debunk this news with a statement. Even on social media, his fans are waiting for him to be active again, as he hasn’t used his Instagram or Twitter since the last race of the 2021 season.

The serious reports of Hamilton bidding farewell to F1 in this manner is a moment of concern for F1 and the FIA. Thus, the new president of the governing body has promised actions to prevent the repetition of the Abu Dhabi GP 2021.

Moreover, he also promised a thorough investigation into the events that took place that night. But that’s little for him and Mercedes at the moment, as Toto Wolff recently said: “I expect action and not just words.”
