Seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton said he hopes to sign a new contract with Mercedes before the summer break this season.
– We do not want to rush, but I think it is worthwhile to show prudence and start negotiations. This is a very difficult process, so I hope that soon we will be able to start them, and it will not interfere with the main work. There are 19 more races ahead of the season. It would be great to have time to agree before the summer break so that by that time we have a clear idea of the future, – said Hamilton.
Note that in February, Briton signed a new contract with the team, which is calculated until the end of the 2021 season.
After four stages, 36-year-old Hamilton leads the Drivers’ Overall Standings with 94 points. On Sunday, the British driver won the Spanish Grand Prix, and on May 8, he won his 100th pole position in his career.
Let us remind you that this season the summer break is scheduled for August.
