A little over two weeks passed Christmas. That date was marked on the calendar of the fans of the Formula 1 and of Lewis Hamilton. The British driver was to announce his renewal for the new season with the team Mercedes. However, the second week of January has arrived, and there is no news of the future of the Champion.
In the last hours several rumors began to appear in the media regarding a possible withdrawal of Hamilton from the competition. However, his father Anthony ruled out the chance to abandon the helmet this year in an interview. “As far as I know, he’s going to keep running. Definitely, as far as I know, and yesterday was the last time I spoke to him, ”said the Englishman.
However, the words of Toto wolff This week did not bring reassurance to Sir Lewis fans. The head of the Mercedes team assured that they are prepared for any decision that Hamilton makes about his future. It should be noted that for Hamilton it is to renew with the Germans or retire, at least one year, from the most important category.
The Austrian assured that he is not thinking about the Lewis contract. “I am not concerned at all, because I will always respect Lewis’s decisions, whether he stays with us for a long time, or he retires to do different things. I think we have to be prepared for everything that does not come “, fired the boss of Mercedes this week.
It should be noted that the Mercedes team has an ‘Option B’ in case Hamilton decides to withdraw from the category: George Russell. The Briton already replaced Lewis, when he tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) at the Sakhir Grand Prix. Russell’s performance at the wheel of the Mercedes was outstanding and left a number of team engineers speechless.
