Lewis Hamilton: No desire to match Schumacher's seven F1 titles

Four-time champion says Juan Manuel Fangio's five titles more realistic target
Lewis Hamilton believes that Michael Schumacher's record of seven Formula 1 championships is safe -- safe from Hamilton, anyway.

Hamilton, who won his fourth F1 title in 2017, says that while Juan Manuel Fangio's mark of five titles is within reach, making it past Schumacher may be too much to ask.

"I can't see it at the moment," Hamilton said during the FIA Prize Giving gala in Paris on Friday. "Four more. It has taken me 10 years to achieve this four. I don't have that desire to match it. Matching Fangio could be quite cool."

Fangio won his five world titles in the 1950s, and is second to Schumacher on the all-time champions list. Hamilton and Schumacher each won their fourth titles at the age of 32. Schumacher won his seventh title at the age of 35.

"Being that I am going to be here for at least another couple of years, that is my goal to try and at least get that," Hamilton said of chasing down Fangio. "When I am older and look back, I don't think the amount of titles I have is going to define what I am as a driver or who I am."
