Stefano Domenicali, a former Ferrari team boss, has taken up the reins from Chase Carey after the American stepped down from his position as F1 chief with Liberty Media.
Domenicali, aside from calendar rotations, has a few other changes that he wants to make.
Hamilton’s contract saga with Mercedes has kept the silly season alive long after it is usually wrapped up.
New Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali says he last spoke to Lewis Hamilton “in the Christmas period”, but the Briton didn’t tell him if he will re-sign with Mercedes.
Lewis Hamilton is the last driver on the grid that is yet to sign a deal for 2021. With a lot of speculation and rumours going around, there is no official word on any possible problems in his contract negotiations with Mercedes.
Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicalli says Lewis gave no indication on what he’ll do the last time he spoke to him.
“We spoke in the Christmas period,” the Italian told Sky Sports 24.
“He is preparing but he didn’t tell me if he will sign or not sign the renewal with Mercedes.
“Of course, he has a great opportunity, not only sporty speaking, to have the numbers and with that be known as the strongest in the world.
“He also has the opportunity to continue to have a role that goes beyond sports. To be champion is one thing, but it’s another to do it in another dimension.
“I am convinced and I hope, as an interested party, that everything can be resolved quickly,” concluded Domenicali.
