Lewis Hamilton fears he may never win another F1 world title

ANXIOUS TO WIN: Lewis Hamilton (PA)

LEWIS HAMILTON fears that he is running out of time to become a multiple World Champion.

Despite already having one F1 title in the bag, Hamilton’s chances of following up with a second Championship seem unlikely this season as he is slumped 55 points adrift of current leader German Sebastian Vettel.

"Time is slipping away," Lewis told The Sunday Times' Driving Magazine.

"It's been five years since I won the World Championship. When I was in the lower categories I would win a championship every year or every other year.

"There are a lot of drivers that haven't won a World Championship, so I feel at least grateful that I have one, although one is less prestigious now because so many people have won a championship. Now the people who have two or three or four: [that's what] makes you special."

Vettel, 25, is currently in imperious form and on the verge of winning his fourth world title in as many years – with many fans drawing parallels with compatriot the legendary, Michael Schumacher.

The 28-year-old also suggested that he left McLaren, who he had joined as a boy racer, because he felt he was "wasting away the best years" of his career.

"I got to F1 and nearly won in my first year, then I won in my second year," Hamilton reflected. "I've never had a car to really compete since then. The car makes such a big difference so you're just wasting away your best years."
