His new contract will see the seven-time world champion continue to drive into his 40s.

However, reigning champion Verstappen is not planning to emulate his rival.

Asked by RaceFans if he had plans to drive for as long as Hamilton, Verstappen explained: “No, absolutely no – no desire.

“No, I have my mind already set on what I want to do also outside of Formula 1. It’s a big passion of mine and I want to make that happen as well.”

Verstappen is still only 25-years-old after making his F1 debut in 2015 aged just 17.

He went on to add: “I’ve been racing since I was four years old and at one point, enough is enough.

“For me, it’s not about winning seven, eight titles, nine titles. Once you’ve won it, it’s always the same thing at the end of the day.

“I have a lot of plans outside of Formula 1 already. It’s not like F1 is my life, this is the only thing that I do.

“And that’s why I think I can easily do other stuff as well while not travelling that much at one point. Because at one point it’s enough.”

Verstappen was speaking ahead of Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix, where he could make history.

A win at Monza would see the Red Bull ace claim a record-breaking 10th consecutive race victory.

The Dutchman’s form has seen him build a lead of 138 points in the Drivers’ Championship and set him on course for a third straight title.
