This Monday it was confirmed that Lewis Hamilton will continue this season with the Mercedes team. The seven-time champion renewed the contract that united him with the Germans for one more season and will be the highest paid driver on the grid of the Formula 1. However, in the last hour there was a suggestive tweet that opened the chance to a last season of Lewis Hamilton.
Seeing the tweet from Mercedes confirming Hamilton’s continuity in Formula 1, it seemed that the endless rumors of retirement were going to end. However, speculation was not stopped. One user responded to Mercedes’ post asking if there was a possibility that the Briton will stay beyond 2021. The team’s response was overwhelming.
No, that is incorrect. It’s a one-year contract, but our focus is on the 2021 season. Plans for 2022 will be discussed in due course, “they warned. This opens the chance for Hamilton to seek his eighth title, break the record for Michael Schumacher, and leave the activity to work on many sub plans.
What will happen?
Hamilton will not have the option to immediately renew his contract for 2022. This could be a kind of ‘punishment’ by the team. The seven-time champion had not asked for a pharaonic contract (the one in 2021 will not be cheap: 45 million euros according to the newspaper ‘The Sun’). However, this does not keep Hamilton asleep. It will first look for its eighth title.
In case of being the most winner in the history of Formula 1, he has several objectives ahead. The first and most complicated would be to find another team. It seems difficult for Hamilton to abandon the best car. The second would be to retire and continue with his great passions: fashion and music, where he began a fairly successful career and even recorded a song with Christina Aguilera.
