Lewis Hamilton announces bumper new £100m Mercedes deal blowing Max Verstappen out of water is ‘very, very close’

LEWIS HAMILTON says he is closing in on signing his new Mercedes deal, worth around £100million. Hamilton’s new contract is now set to blow the Dutchman’s out of the water at around £50m a year. Red Bull were fined $7m (£5.5m) last year and given a 10 percent reduction in wind tunnel time as a punishment for last year’s breach. I mean, it wasn’t really a big punishment last time so there’s no real [deterrent]. Asked what punishment he feels would be appropriate Hamilton added: “I’m not going to say what it should be, it’s not my job to do that. He added: “If anybody has breached any regulation, you want the punishment to represent the crime. “There were breaches last year, and clearly the punishment didn’t fit the crime.
