‘It’s complete bull****’!: Toto Wolff quashes talk of replacing Lewis Hamilton with Sergio Perez – and insists he has had conversations with the 37-year-old about staying at Mercedes for another ‘five or 10 YEARS’

Mercedes team principle Toto Wolff has dismissed suggestions that he is looking to replace Lewis Hamilton with Sergio Perez. The 37-year-old’s form has triggered suggestions that Mercedes may look to move him on at the end of the season, but Wolff, via the Independent, has branded the claims ‘complete bull****’. Hamilton’s current deal with Mercedes runs to the end of 2023, but there have been suggestions he could leave the current constructors champions before then. ‘I never called Sergio’, said Wolff when questioned on the rumours in an interview with motorsport.com. Wolff also suggested that Hamilton is nowhere near retiring, despite several suggestions that it is just a matter of time until the seven-time world champion calls it quits.
