Lewis Hamilton was officially crowned Formula 1 world champion for a fourth time on Friday night when he picked up the winners' trophy at the FIA Prize Giving gala in Paris - but how many more times will he do it?

Hamilton broke the record for F1 pole positions at Monza earlier this year, surpassing Schumacher's tally of 68, and is quickly catching in the win rankings, but still has another three titles to go if he wants to catch the German legend.

Hamilton said on Friday in Paris he did not yet have a burning desire to beat Schumacher's title count, instead setting his sights on Juan Manuel Fangio's tally of five that he could match next year with another championship win.

But if he can continue his recent form, having won three of the last four championships, could Hamilton get to Schumacher's figure? Will he be in F1 long enough to give it a go? Or will interests outside of the sport take his interest? Let us know your thoughts in the Crash Forum section here.

Crash will be running Forum debates every day during the winter in preparation for the 2018 season debating a range of topics and issues – but you can submit your own ideas here.
