Hamilton Has No Desire to Chase Schumacher’s 7 Titles

Formula 1 championship leader Lewis Hamilton says he will not specifically target matching Michael Schumacher’s current all-time record of seven world championship titles.
Hamilton, 32, has three F1 titles to his name and seriously boosted his chances of adding a fourth this year with a crucial win in the Singapore Grand Prix, Motorsport.com reported.
He is signed with Mercedes through 2018 only, but has previously said he’s keen on extending the deal, and reckons he has “five, six years left in the sport”.
However, he has made it clear that his long-term plans in F1 won’t be affected by whether or not he has the chance to match or even beat Schumacher’s seven titles.
“Honestly, I’m working just step by step. It’s hard enough to get these championships won one at a time; it’s hard enough just to get this fourth one,” Hamilton said.
“Currently, it’s quite clear for me. Who knows if we’re going to get anywhere near Michael? Seven championships - I personally don’t have a desire to chase that.”
