Following the Malaysian Grand Prix the 28-year-old says that he is not a fan of the way the sport has now become so planned, and he also added that he misses the ‘pure speed racing’ of the past.

“These tyres make it very hard, very difficult to make them last,” Hamilton said. “It’s not fun, I didn’t enjoy the race.

“It’s not the same as back in the day when you had stints where you are pushing to the maximum the whole time, you had tyres that would last.

“Now you’re just… it’s like you have a hundred dollars and you have to spend it wisely over a period of time. It makes racing a lot different. It’s more strategic rather than pure speed racing.”
