Lewis Hamilton threatens to quit Formula One

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel

Lewis Hamilton has expressed his concern over the expansion of the Formula One calendar after the announcement of a race in Vietnam in 2020.

"I am someone that really loves racing, but the season is long, it takes a big commitment from all of us, and it is a long time away from our families". It already feels like we are on race No 25 this year, so I don't think more races is going to be a good thing. "It's not something I've asked Valtteri if he wants, but I don't think he's going to want that".

This season has 21 races, as does 2019, but Formula One has also been talking to Miami for a USA street race and Zandvoort in the Netherlands about a return to the coastal circuit last visited in 1985. You start preparing for next year as soon as the season is so done, so getting your mind tuned is very hard'.

In the Mexican Grand Prix, both Ferrari drivers finished ahead of both Mercedes drivers, as Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen finished in second and third place to score 18 points and 15 points, respectively, while Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas finished in fourth and fifth to score 12 points and 10 points, respectively.

Bottas has won three races since he joined Mercedes previous year as a replacement for retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg.

Governing body the FIA says a series of measures have been taken to ensure F1 personnel are at reduced risk leaving the circuit, a time at which incidents have become increasingly common in recent years.

Chinese staff forced to drink urine and eat roaches
The company also allegedly threatened to severely reduce severance pay for anyone who quit. The video also showed staff drinking cups of yellow liquid, which is reportedly urine.

As a result, Ferrari must outscore Mercedes by at least 13 points in the Brazilian Grand Prix to remain mathematically eligible to win the constructor championship heading into the 21st and final race of the season. "We're trying to win", he told reporters.

"But I am really hopeful we get in the vehicle this weekend and it feels more normal and we are more competitive", Hamilton added. "Whoever has the most points has won it".

Bottas was leading September's Russian Grand Prix when he was asked by the Mercedes team to move over and gift victory to Hamilton.

The Briton has won nine of the 19 races so far this season while Bottas, who has dutifully obeyed team orders to help Hamilton and endured agonising bad luck while leading, has yet to triumph. "I want to win by winning the race myself". He is going to want to win it his own way.

Bottas confirmed: "I definitely don't want to win by it being given to me".

"So I don't know if I'd be doing him many favours in the sense of giving him a win. I think he thinks he can do it himself".
