I would gladly pay to stop all the newsfeed articles on the speculation and how Lewis went silent on social media. It's not a life changing thing to me whether he stays or retires. But, much like yourself obviously, I think he's staying. Either that or he is going to hardcore punk Merc by not letting them know for sure.

A quote from the article, which I find very true in todays age.
“I'm not vainglorious. I got out of the sport because of the vanity, the greed, self-obsession, the elitism and the lack of humbleness,” he begins before conceding, “but that’s me, you know, it was my problem because I couldn't deal with it. I wasn't good enough to deal with that sort of stuff.”

I don't really care whether Lewis retires or not. Like yourself I am keeping away from F1 news articles right now because it's just all the same speculation- I can't see him leaving Mercedes in the lurch as Rosberg did in 2016. They'd probably have to negotiate Bottas return or they'd be in a very bad situation. He's not that kind of person so I'd imagine he'll return.
