Lewis Hamilton has ruled Formula 1 as its undisputed king for quite some time. With Mercedes at the helm, the 38-year-old built a dynasty with the Silver Arrows. But with the advent of the 2022 regulation reshuffle, the dominant force of the turbo-hybrid era felt it was falling short of its goals. Of course, the new normal has been difficult for the 7x champion to cope with. As he continues to seek further fame, the somber mood at the team’s Brackley-based factory is sure to weigh on him.

One thing is for sure, Hamilton has his eyes firmly set on that elusive 8th world title. Be that as it may, from today’s perspective, that’s a distant dream for the multiple champion. As such, it has now been speculated that Hamilton may have resorted to other means to restore the glory of his earlier recognition.
