Lewis Hamilton has begun planning for life after his Formula 1 career comes to an end.
However, Hamilton says that he is beginning to plan for life after his racing career by laying down the foundations for future business ventures.
"I am at a point in my life where I know that I have a certain amount of years left in F1 and I am conscious of what will be beyond that," Hamilton is quoted as saying by Motorsport.com.
"I look at people like Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and David Beckham – sports stars who have continued to rise beyond their active careers and created businesses and futures for themselves beyond sport.
"Now I am in a phase where I am trying to build foundations to be able to do the same."
The F1 season continues next week with the Singapore Grand Prix.
