Lewis Hamilton wants his former team can improve next year

"I really hope for McLaren, which has a special place in my heart, that next year is a better year for them.

“I hope they have a stronger engine and a stronger car.

“Fernando's a tough cookie and I enjoyed the little battle that I had with him and I hope that we get to have many more like that.”

Over recent years Hamilton’s main rivalries have come from within his own Mercedes team.

Fernando Alonso has had a torrid season

The Brit often came to blows with Nico Rosberg last season, who he lost out to in the race for the title.

Team-mate Valtteri Bottas has guaranteed at least a third-placed finish this season, but Hamilton wants to see other teams now produce better engines to make the sport more competitive.

“Fighting the other teams is what we want to see, what Formula One wants to see,” Hamilton added.

“I remember growing up watching Formula One and that's what I wanted to see.”
