Lewis Hamilton’s contract with Mercedes expires at the end of the year. The parties have repeatedly said that they want to continue cooperation, but the matter has not yet reached the real signing of a new agreement.
According to the British press, a new three-year contract is ready and the parties only need to sign it. However, RTL has completely different information.
According to the German TV channel, contract negotiations did not even begin. Moreover, Hamilton and Mercedes plan to sit down at the negotiating table only after the end of the season, so as not to be distracted from the fight for the title.
Thus, if the RTL information is correct, then news about Lewis’s contract with Mercedes should not be expected until November, or even December.
