Lewis Hamilton is facing the most important season of his career in the Formula 1. The seven-time champion can break one of the most impressive records, which he shares with Michael Schumacher. However, many point out that it may be Hamilton’s last season in the category, and Mercedes it doesn’t do much to quell these rumors.
The latest contract renewal, which was one of the novels of the summer, indicates that Hamilton will be only one more year at Mercedes. However, the option that the Briton has is to continue in the German team, if he wants to. However, Hamilton’s head begins to be elsewhere, such as music, one of his great passions, and modeling.
Toto Wolff, Head of the Mercedes team assured that the renewal of Hamilton’s contract was not done before due to ‘lack of time’, since according to his words they began to speak around Christmas. In an interview the medium ‘Speedweek’ made it clear that Hamilton’s continuity is not assured beyond 2021, as is that of Valtteri Bottas.
“A multi-year contract is more complex than one for just one season, so we signed this agreement for a year now and then we will see,” warned Wolff, adding that “Currently everything is open, on both sides (Hamilton and Bottas) after of 2021 ». On the other hand, he spoke of the chance to have Esteban Ocon (Alpine) Y George Russell (Williams).
“Esteban is in his second year of a two-year contract with Alpine, while Russell is with Williams, so there may be variations for 2022. Until then, all our support goes to Valtteri and Lewis. In the middle of the season, we will assess whether there will be a change in 2022. Now it is too early to talk about possible scenarios, ”said the German team boss.
