Lewis Hamilton Has No Plans On Taking Nico Rosberg���s ���easy��� Way Out

In the year in which he set a new record for most F1 pole positions, Hamilton’s fourth world title at the age of 32 has brought into focus Michael Schumacher’s hitherto-unthinkable record of seven world championships and 91 race wins.

But in the aftermath of his word championship coronation in Mexico on Monday (AEDT), and speculation he could yet break Schumacher’s tally of wins and titles, Hamilton insisted he wouldn’t be defined by statistics and records.

“I’m different,” said Hamilton. “People talk about Michael’s single-mindedness about his job but to stand out in the world today is a lot harder because it’s all been done before.

“So doing something different that helps you stand out, that really highlights your individuality, is really important and that’s really something I’m working on.”

Away from F1, Hamilton has become a habitual globetrotter and a regular presence at celebrity parties and fashion shows. But ominously for his rivals, arguably Hamilton’s greatest achievement this season has been his ability to harness his increasing preoccupation with life away from the racing track with his best ever form on it.

“I’ll continue to race while I love it,” he added. “I’ve enjoyed it this year more than ever.”

And unlike the situation with ex-teammate Nico Rosberg that unfolded 12 months ago, there is no prospect of F1’s newly-crowned world champion retiring.

“I could do the easy thing like obviously Nico did which is just stop and retreat with these four titles, but I think there’s more in me, I think there’s more to come, more of a challenge, as there are harder times ahead. I like that, I love that, that’s challenging,” confirmed Hamilton.
