Commenting "not really" when asked if he ever considers his decision to remain with Mercedes, a choice that has so far yielded an additional six drivers' titles to his name, Hamilton explained: "I have no reason to think about it.
"It was a part of…each end of term you have to do your due diligence and see what options you have and I’m really proud of what I have and where I am with Mercedes."
Since before joining F1, Hamilton was linked with Mercedes through McLaren and the seven-time champion revealed it was loyalty to the Mercedes "family" that stopped him from leaving for Maranello.
“I think I’ve said it before, it was very short-lived, the idea of going to Ferrari was short-lived in a sense that when you are with Mercedes, you are with a family for life," Hamilton added.
“If you look at all the historic drivers who have driven for Mercedes, they have been with them until they’re in their 90s and that is something that you don’t see in any other team, with any other brand.
“So that is something that I am very proud of. Plus, we have achieved more than anybody and that is down to great teamwork, that is down to loyalty and so I don’t take that for granted.”
