Why did Lewis Hamilton announce he could break up with F1?

Lewis Hamilton is looking for a contract with a record salary in F1 history but is now at risk of only enjoying a poor salary, not just at Mercedes.

The British racer has just won the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix and if he succeeds again in Istanbul next week, he will have his 7th World Champion title, catching the legendary Schumacher record, despite teammate Valtteri Bottas’s performance, also the most dangerous opponent.

The reason why Hamilton suddenly wanted to break up with F1 was probably that he has yet to close a new contract with Mercedes. The 35-year-old driver wants a new 3-year contract, each year receiving a new record salary of F1 of 40 million pounds. This salary is up to 5 million pounds (150 billion) higher than the amount that Hamilton is receiving at Mercedes.

But if Mercedes continues to delay until the new F1 salary regulations take effect, Hamilton will only receive a maximum of £ 22 million per season, more than half of his request.

Now, Lewis Hamiton’s next goal is to catch up and hit Schumacher’s record six times in the league!

On Schumacher’s 14-year journey to break the KLT, Hamilton thought he had failed at a time by dropping to 3rd after the rain in Portugal, but then sprang up to win 8th out of 12 Grand Prix races ​​this year. He is 25.5 seconds more than his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen finished 3rd.

This feat increased in magnitude in Hamilton’s record collection. Not only does he currently have the most number of Grand Prix wins, but he also holds the record for taking the pole 97 times, a record 161 waking times on the podium, and a record of 45 consecutive points after the race.

Gasly won the championship at the Italian GP

Mercedes made a serious mistake with Hamilton, then Pierre Gasly of Alpha Tauri finished first in the race with a series of events in Monza on September 6.

Gasly won the championship at the Italian GP

The victory after twelve years of waiting for Alpha Tauri – formerly the Toro Rosso team – on the Monza race made the Italian Grand Prix 2020 become one of the most memorable and shocking races in F1 history. The last time Red Bull’s B team won first place was also at Monza when Sebastian Vettel scored.

Two times of safety vehicles appeared in a row at the end of the first half, pushing Mercedes into a difficult position and causing world champion Lewis Hamilton to make mistakes. The golden opportunity was placed on Gasly, who was once disgraced at Red Bull, and the 24-year-old French racer made full use of it, finishing first with a record 36 minutes 39,174 seconds.

Gasly was overjoyed and crying on the podium

The first starting advantage with the remarkable W11 gives Hamilton easy control over the race and continually increases the distance with the back group at the first third of the race. By the 20th round, the distance between the Mercedes star and the second runner, Carlos Sainz Jnr (McLaren), was more than 12 seconds.

In the 20th round, Kevin Magnussen’s car broke down and had to stay on the side of the track, the safety car was deployed to serve the cleaning. The safety vehicle appears just before the optimal time for pit racers.

At this point, Mercedes made a mistake and caused Hamilton to lose his 90th victory when he called Hamilton to change the tire as soon as the safety car just went to the track without realizing that at that time the car was banned from the pit.

In the first group, Stroll missed a chance to win when a bad start and fell behind Gasly and Sainz in the next round. Sainz also quickly surpassed Raikkonen to chase after Gasly to win first place. But While trying to reach the last seconds, the Spanish driver still could not catch up with his opponent, so he accepted second place.

With the strange trio Gasly, Sainz, and Stroll on the podium, Mercedes is absent from the top three for the first time this year. This is also the first time since 2014, the big three Mercedes, Red Bull, and Ferrari do not appear on the podium.
