Lewis Hamilton calls in his ‘union’ over proposed salary cut as six-time world champion seeks new £40m-a-year deal to re-sign with Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton has called on the drivers’ ‘trade union’ to scrutinise plans that would drastically cut the earning power of the sport’s biggest stars. Six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has called in his ‘union’ over proposed salary cut. Hamilton’s Mercedes boss Toto Wolff (left) has supported the radical salary proposal. Formula One teams need to show profitability like any other company out there. ‘We all need to achieve that, but drivers — and the ones in Formula One are the best in the world — should earn high salaries like all the other sporting stars.’. Before all the salary discussion comes this emotional weekend for Hamilton, contesting his first Formula One race on the track where his hero Ayrton Senna died at Tamburello curve during the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994.
