SIR LEWIS HAMILTON has been urged to retire from Formula 1 to give the next generation of drivers their chance.
The Stevenage speedster is yet to confirm if he will return for the 2022 season after being controversially guided to a record-breaking eighth F1 title by Max Verstappen.
But Williams Bigwig Jost Capito could care less if the Brit returns to the track and tells this year German broadcaster RTL: “I don’t care.
“I don’t care if he drives or not. [It’s] totally irrelevant, really totally irrelevant.”
Capito thinks the 37-year-old Hamilton should be content with his incredible championship tally and make way for up-and-coming drivers.
He continued: “They always say there aren’t enough places for young riders and then I think when someone has been world champion seven times.
“He’s actually done enough and could make way for a youngster, why not?”
Hamilton is reportedly refusing to make a decision on his future until the investigation into Verstappen’s title win in Abu Dhabi is complete.

But the FIA is no closer to completing its investigation into Michael Masi’s decision-making and his notorious handling of the safety car period.
They said in a statement: “No decision has been made at this stage on the outcome of the detailed analysis currently being carried out on the events of the last Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix.
“As previously announced, the results of this detailed analysis will be presented at the F1 Commission meeting on February 14th in London after an open discussion with all F1 drivers and will then have to be finalized at the World Motor Sport Council meeting on March 18th Bahrain, under the authority of FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.”
One man hoping to see Hamilton back on track next season is Red Bull boss Christian Horner, who told WION: “I really hope Lewis will be there this year.
“He’s still riding at an incredible level, the two drivers last year were in a league of their own.”
The new F1 season, in which Red Bull’s Verstappen will attempt to defend his controversial world title, begins on March 20.
