Hamilton hits back over contract delay rumours

Lewis Hamilton has hit back at two fellow world champions who wonder if the Mercedes driver will sign another contract. 1996 world champion Damon Hill agrees that Hamilton will be thinking “very hard” about whether to keep racing beyond this season. Indeed, Hamilton seems to imply that his very clear goal is to stay at Mercedes next year – which would mean he will eventually sign a new deal. “We had a difficult year last year and I’m still here,” said the Briton. “And whether or not we have a difficult year this year, I’ll still be here. Hamilton also lashed back at suggestions Mercedes is poised to ditch its ‘no sidepods’ concept within a few races this year.
