Lewis Hamilton Mercedes Contract – The News, So Far!
The six-time Formula 1 World Champion is reportedly in talks of extending his contract with current team, Mercedes.
Whilst there has been a lot of talk, going back and forth, of a potential move to Ferrari, it still seems unlikely that there will be such a huge switch for the British driver.
The Mercedes driver will be out of a contract at the end of the 2020 season and as things stand, Charles Leclerc has become a firm favourite for Ferrari – committing to a long-term future with the team.
Realistically, Ferrari is the only other place where Lewis Hamilton would move to, if he wanted to switch teams, however he also spoke about his “loyalty” to the team in 2019 saying:
Lewis Hamilton: “I know I look good in red (laughs) but it’s a very, very difficult scenario. I’ve been with Mercedes since I was 13. Change is always cool but loyalty is everything, that’s why I have this tattoo. (Showing his left arm).
“I know that I’m not going to be racing forever… what am I going to do in the future? Do I want to remain a part of Mercedes doing something quite epic beyond racing?”
“If I was, for example, going to shift to another team, then I don’t know what that’s going to look like…”
