Lewis hamilton has not yet fixed his continuity with the team Mercedes for the 2021 season. The Brit must sit down to negotiate with Toto wolff the new contract, which seems to be a fact. However, Hamilton’s statements in the last hours stunned all the fans and journalists present at the press conference.
For the first time since joining the German team in 2013, the Briton raised questions about his continuity. When journalists began to attack with questions about the renovation, Hamilton only limited himself to sowing unknowns that he did not answer. However, I make it clear that the relationship with the team continues in the best way.
Hamilton said he does not want to sit down to talk about his new contract yet. At least, until the end of the year he will not negotiate with the team. The Brit wants to secure the seventh title and see what options he has for 2021. “I suppose at some point we will. But it is not the priority right now. Getting the job done this year is my priority now, it’s the only thing I’m focused on, ”said Hamilton.
Although at the beginning of the conference, Hamilton’s responses were as expected, the Mercedes driver left speechless before the doubts he sowed about his continuity. “When we sit down to talk, it is usually to talk about three-year periods, but we are at a different time. Do I want to continue for three years? That is also another question, there are many questions to answer, “launched the Briton.
The possibility of another team
The current championship leader banished the possibility of changing teams, at least for now. I haven’t talked to anyone. I don’t plan on doing it. At some point Toto and I are going to sit down and we are going to form a path forward, ”he commented. Hamilton ended the conference by promising news. I think I earned the right to stay for a while. I can’t say more. Hopefully hear something in the next two months, “he concluded.
