While Hamilton didn't comment on the issue, he is doing strange activities on social media.

First, he boycott F1 ceremony, then unfollowed them on social media. Days after, the seven-time champion launched a mission and unfollowed everyone on his Instagram account.

Hamilton's brother Nicholas revealed that his brother wants to take a break from social media which is why he has unfollowed everyone. He said, "I think he (Lewis) is just having a bit of a social media break, which I don’t blame him for. Social media can be a very toxic place. But he’s cool though. He’s fine. He’s watching the kids ski at the moment."

Despite the speculations of his retirement, the fans are optimistic about Hamilton returning to the court and grabbing his record 8th title.
