Lewis Hamilton Was Given Surprising Advice For F1 Career: ‘Should Go To Red Bull!’

Published

By

LEWIS HAMILTON was given surprising career advice as Eddie Jordan suggested the Briton should join Red Bull.

Lewis Hamilton will return to Formula 1 next season despite his anger over last season’s final race, Martin Brundle has said. The Mercedes man is said to be still furious with the FIA after a controversial decision from race director Michael Masi helped Max Verstappen win his first world title on the last lap. In a special edition of The F1 Show titled Abu Dhabi: One Month On, Brundle was asked whether Hamilton and Mercedes could consider leaving F1 ‒ but was adamant in his response.

He said: “Absolutely not, I don’t buy any of it to be honest.

“I’m sure Toto has been asked by Lewis, ‘what are you doing about this?’ But Formula 1 is fantastically successful for the Mercedes-Benz brand, while Lewis is 37 years old and we know he’s driving at his peak, incredibly determined and competitive.

“He’ll be back.”

While Hamilton has enjoyed dominance at Mercedes since 2014, this hasn’t stopped speculation around his future.

Lewis Hamilton news:

In 2020, Eddie Jordan suggested Hamilton should make the move to Red Bull.

He said: “I personally believe Lewis should go to Red Bull and not to Ferrari.”

When asked in 2020 about the prospect of Hamilton joining Red Bull, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said “never say never”.

He added: “Never say never. I’ve seen crazier things in my life.

“But I don’t see why Lewis would do that.

“He has a very strong personal bond with the Mercedes brand and the team that he helped to create.

Lewis Hamilton news:

“At the moment we are giving him the best car and we have mutual trust in each other. We still have successful times ahead of us.

“I do not believe such a move for him would be rationally understandable.”

The Mercedes boss has also commented on Hamilton’s future this weekend, saying it would be a “disgrace” if the seven-time world champion didn’t continue in Formula 1.

Wolff told Kronen Zeitung: “I really hope we see him again. It would be a disgrace for the whole of F1 if the best driver decided to retire because of outrageous decisions.”

He added: “No matter what obstacle has been thrown at him, he has known all his life that he has to [do] his talking on the track.

“But it is incredibly difficult for him, until he has found a way between understanding what is right and what is wrong. That just takes time.”

The FIA’s investigation findings are set to be released just two days before the first race of the 2022 season, meaning the furore around last season’s finale is likely to remain a hot topic going into Bahrain.

On the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Wolff added: “That will never be forgotten. Because what happened to Lewis was just wrong.

“He was unbeatable that day, until race control blew its fuses. They committed three violations of the rules. That’s just hard to understand.

“It will always follow us ‒ although Max Verstappen was a worthy world champion over the season. But that day, one was better than the other ‒ and they didn’t win.”

Despite the fortune that came Verstappen’s way, he has received many plaudits for his performances last season.

The Dutchman was praised this week by his former teammate Alex Albon, who lauded Verstappen’s mental strength.

He told motorsport-total.com: “More than anything, I was surprised by his ability not to worry.

“Mentally he’s incredible. He just drives the car and doesn’t think about the consequences or anything else that’s going on. That inspired me.

“If [Max] finished behind Lewis, he would say ‘okay, it doesn’t matter’. If he led a race or won a race, it was also ‘okay, whatever’.

“I admire that because it’s not easy to be in the limelight as much as he is.”

Prophet Nigel Gaisie of the True Word Fire Prophetic Ministries has warned of a terrorist attack during the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

Gaisie disclosed that he foresaw terrorists detonating explosives in a stadium during the AFCON tournament.

Addressing his members, the Ghanaian-based prophet urged participating countries to be prayerful in averting disaster during the tournament in Cameroon.

According to Prophet Gaisie: “This is an international prophecy. The Lord carried my spirit into a place like Cameroon concerning the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I saw something like players standing on a stretcher and they were in pain as some of them were crying.

“Let the nation Cameroon pray and any other qualified team also do same because I’m seeing something like a terrorist attack and explosive attacks.

“I’m seeing that something happened at the stadium and the whole place was in disorder and people died.”

DAILY POST recalls that the Ghanaian government had cautioned pastors against issuing prophecies that would cause panic and fear.

The 2021 AFCON being hosted in Cameroon will commence on Sunday, January 9, 2022.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Super Eagles had arrived in Cameroon ahead of the commencement of the tournament.

Super Eagles of Nigeria had arrived in Garoua, Cameroon on Thursday.

Lewis Hamilton Remains Silent On His F1 Future As Toto Wolff’s Reveals Private Message

Lewis Hamilton remains silent on his F1 future as Toto Wolff‘s reveals private message to Mercedes ace.

Toto Wolff has revealed what he told Lewis Hamilton before receiving his knighthood.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has revealed what he told Lewis Hamilton before the latter received his knighthood two weeks ago. Prince Charles honoured Hamilton for services to motorsport on December 15, just days after he was denied a record-breaking eighth Formula 1 world title.

Hamilton was on course to seal his fifth successive Drivers’ Championship in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

But Max Verstappen profited from late safety car drama and overtook the Brit on the final lap to win his maiden world title.

It was a conclusion to a dramatic 2021 season marred in controversy, and Mercedes saw two protests over the result rejected by stewards.

Despite his woes at the Yas Marina Circuit, Hamilton was honoured in London after an era of dominance in F1.

Wolff has explained the message he sent to Hamilton before Prince Charles knighted him at Windsor Castle.

The Silver Arrows boss wanted him to remember his career’s ‘positive moments’ whilst receiving the prestigious honour.

He said: “What I told him before that [being knighted] was that he should try to take these positive moments with him during these few hours, in which his life’s work and his achievements are honoured.

“I think he did that. You saw that too how honourable that was to him.”

Hamilton hasn’t posted on social media since losing his F1 crown to Verstappen, prompting speculation over his future.

And Wolff’s comments earlier this month fueled rumours of the 36-year-old’s potential retirement in the aftermath of Abu Dhabi.

“It’s going to take a long time for us to digest what has happened on Sunday. I don’t think we will ever come over it; that’s not possible. And certainly not him [Hamilton] as a driver,” Wolff explained.

“I would very much hope the two of us and the rest of the team we can work through the events… But he will never overcome the pain and the distress that was caused on Sunday.”
