Cape Town - Three-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton is considering retiring from Formula 1. The 32-year-old, who is contracted to Mercedes until 2018, was speaking to the FIA's Auto magazine.

His decision to leave wouldn't affect the sport or his legacy if he were to join former team mate Nico Rosberg in retirement. 

Hamilton said: "My destiny is in my own hands. I can decide to stop at the end of this year, does that mean my legacy is less great than it would be if I stop in five years' time? Who's to say?"

The Briton's former team mate Rosberg retired from the sport at the end of the 2016 season after winning his maiden drivers' title. 

Hamilton told Auto: “I can empathise, and really understand in some ways, the feeling of wanting to stop and do something different."
