Lewis Hamilton said he did not compare himself to the sport's legendary name Ayrton Senna, despite all the success he had achieved
The British pilot is expected to earn his fourth championship this weekend as he is the most pole-rated player of all time this year.
Having succeeded in passing the idol Senna almost everywhere, Hamilton is now shown among the best in sports by many names.
But Hamilton says he has not kept himself in touch with Senna, despite more success.
The 32-year-old pilot said, "Ayrton lost his life as he continued to compete, so his life was short and if he could continue and had more safety conditions then he would get more championships."
"I look at him and say, 'I'm better because I do not have more wins, poles and championships,' but my name makes me very proud to pass by. ' said.
While Lewis Hamilton was expected to retire within a few years, the British pilot said it would not be in the short run.
"I can imagine myself outside of Formula 1, but I'm not interested in it right now because I enjoy being here, there's a time here that will make my life better."
"I will not be here at the age of 40. I do not think I can do this, I do not know, I have different moods."
"I do not know how long I will stay, but I want to be here for a few more years, and I'll leave when I think it's time."
