Lewis Hamilton admits he wants to sign a new contract and stay at Mercedes after this season and hints a deal will be struck ‘once we get the job done’ as he closes in on record equalling seventh world title

Lewis Hamilton has hinted he is prepared to pen a new deal to stay at Mercedes which could enable him a chance to break Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world championships. ‘I definitely don’t think it’s over,’ he told Sky Sports. Hamilton’s broke the record for most F1 wins at the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday and hopes he can stay with his current Mercedes team for at least the 2021 season. ‘Naturally I think already last year, in Hungary last year I think Toto [Wolff] was talking about signing a contract,’ said Hamilton. Hamilton admitted he has been discussing a new deal with boss Toto Wolff (above) since 2019. Hamilton is also facing a race against the clock to sign what is a proposed £40million-a-year deal after plans to cap driver salaries were approved unanimously by the teams.
