One of the most anticipated news by the world of Formula 1 is the continuity next year of Lewis hamilton. The seven-time champion had renewed earlier this season, but for only one year. In other words, at the end of the season, both he and the Mercedes team will have to discuss the continuity of their contract. Hamilton for his part has already assured that he wants to continue competing.
The seven-time champion has already taken the first step. Began to squeeze Mercedes in the fight for his new contract. It’s only two races, and Hamilton dropped the first bomb on the market: “I plan to continue next year,” he said Thursday at the press conference prior to the Grand Prix of Portugal, which runs on the weekend. From the team’s side, there were still no words.
Hamilton’s contract is for one season only. This led to thousands of rumors that the Mercedes driver wants to withdraw from the category at the end of the year. However, far from this is Hamilton. The first signal Hamilton gave was a test he did in the last week. There, Hamilton rolled on the new tires for next season.
“I plan to be here”
“I plan to be here next year and I want to help Pirelli to have a better product. The drivers have wanted a higher performance tire. So it was important to see where the starting point is and what differences I can help so that we have more mechanical grip, less degradation, “said Hamilton at yesterday’s press conference.
“I still love working with this team and it is encouraging to see the steps my team is taking to be more inclusive and diverse. They have announced one of the initiatives that we have within our organization and we still have a lot of work to do in this sport. There is still a lot to do and I know that being here I have a better chance of helping change, “said ‘Sir Lewis’ to end.
