Lewis Hamilton will return to F1 says pal Jenson Button 'Wants to be most decorated'

But Jenson’s business partner Ant cut in: “While the finale was controversial, I think the sport is popular now and it needs that controversy. It needs the battle amongst the competitors.”

Lewis’ potential retirement is even more unlikely considering his contract with current partner Mercedes.

The manufacturers could technically sue the driver if he decides to pull out from the next race.

There’s still just over a month to go until the next season gets started, and there are still no signs he won’t continue for a 10th season with the team just yet.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
