Clickbait but I genuinely believe this could screw up the roll he was on. That’s pretty major

I've thought and said the same. If it transpires that he never gets as good of a chance as he would have had this year, that'll be pretty crushing for him no doubt.

But in the end, there is a degree of good fortune in all aspects of F1 and life in general. He's had some races and arguably championships that were swung his way by good fortune in addition to his own very hard work of course. By the same token, like any other driver he must expect sometimes fortune will work against him.

Not a chance. Once normality returns ALL the drivers will be hungry and for Lewis it will be a return to business as usual.

edit for speeling and punktuashon errors.

Hamilton's success depends on the performance of his team as ever. Judging by pre-season testing he shouldn't give up hope just yet!

Anyway he's 35 years old so if Schumi's records are what he's after (a suggestion he has always denied) then he has time.

The postponement of the 2021 regulations removes a risk, too- you wouldn't bet against Mercedes to build a great racing car but the current regs are running another year and unless Red Bull are right on top of Mercedes that extends Hamilton's window of opportunity too.
