Lewis Hamilton knows the time will one day come for him to set off into the sunset, but for now the five-time world champion says Mercedes and himself still have a lot to achieve.
Formula 1's action will resume next week at Spa with Hamilton heading into the second part of the season with a comfortable 62-point lead over Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
Hamilton knows all too well never o put the cart before the horse in F1, but chances of the Brit securing his sixth world title are growing bigger with each passing race.
That feat would put the 34-year-old one crown short of Michael Schumacher's record of seven titles, an achievement Hamilton looks certain to chase.
"One day I will have to stop, but right now I feel fantastic physically and mentally," said F1's mega-star, quoted by Sky Sports.
"I don't currently have any plans of stopping soon. There's more to do, there's more to win, there's more to achieve together, inside and outside of the car."
Hamilton's current contract with Mercedes expires at the end of next season. But based on his comments and motivation, it looks probable that he'll extend his association with his Silver Arrows outfit beyond that term.
"It's been a phenomenal journey [at Mercedes]," added the 81-time Grand Prix winner.
"I think right now I'm just excited to see what more we can do together and what's next.
"I honestly don't know why some people decide to stop at the times they decide to stop, but I love driving. I really, really love the challenge."
