Lewis Hamilton: F1 world champion signs new Mercedes contract

Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has signed a new one-year contract with Mercedes for the 2021 season. The 36-year-old’s previous deal lapsed in 2020 but he will now race for Mercedes for a ninth season. Part of the new deal involves a commitment from Mercedes to continue to work with Hamilton on seeking “greater diversity and inclusion in motorsport”. They will work on creating a new joint charitable foundation and Hamilton says the manufacturer has been “extremely supportive” on the issue. “The story of Mercedes and Lewis has written itself into the history books of our sport over the past eight seasons, and we are hungry to compete and to add more chapters to it,” said Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff.
