The signing of Hamilton’s contract takes a long time. In the meantime it is known that Hamilton is demanding and that he wants to have all his demands included in the contract. Not only his financial compensation is a point of discussion, but also the way in which Mercedes deals with its surroundings is important to Hamilton.
Lewis Hamilton has still not signed a contract for next season. On several occasions, the driver and Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff assured that the deal would be complete
“It’s not one dimensional,” said the Austrian.
“Formula 1 has always been about best man in best machine wins. The best men means the quickest driver, and the most intelligent driver.
“[Lewis is] the one that understands how the dynamics in a team works, its technical ability, and on the other side seeing himself in the right context within the organisation and not like a solar system where everything revolves around the sun.
“Equally, the organisation around the driver needs to be on its absolute A-game in order to deliver performance in the various areas.
“This means on the engineering side, on the commercial side, on the political side, and on the communication side, in order to keep the wheels rolling.
“This is a business without a silver bullet, contrary to what most people think – even within the industry.
“It’s a business around marginal gains where everything needs to be in the right place for a team to be successful.”
“It doesn’t worry me at all, because I will always respect Lewis’ decisions. Whether this is staying with us for a long time, or whether that means leaving the sport and pursuing different interests.
“I think we need to be ready for all kinds of curve balls being thrown at us. But at the same time, we talk a lot, and we are very transparent with each other.
“I think there is more to achieve together,” concluded Wolff.
