Lewis Hamilton says he has absolutely no desire to venture outside of Formula 1 in his motorsport career, and has no interest in ever competing at Le Mans or in IndyCar.

Hamilton’s view differs from that of Fernando Alonso who has made clear his desire to race at Le Mans after tackling the Indy 500 earlier this year, and where he hopes to return sometime in the future.
“I’ve always respected [Indy 500] and appreciated it and I got to watch part of it when Fernando did it, which was super exciting. I love the idea of drivers being able to do more than one series.
“I have a huge amount of respect for those drivers; it’s quite scary when you approach those banks at the speed that they do.
