Lewis Hamilton only signed new £40m contract on 10-month deal due to dramatic regulation changes in 2022 season

IT took ages to get done, but finally Lewis Hamilton has signed a new contract with Mercedes. After all, he was simply untouchable in 2020 as he won his record-equalling seventh world title. Well, it actually makes perfect sense for both Hamilton and Mercedes, with Toto Wolff admitting that both parties agreed that the short-term contract was the best solution. Team boss Wolff said: “We jointly agreed to do a one-year deal. After all, Valtteri Bottas is also out of contract at the end of this year, so Mercedes have the option to completely change their lineup if they wish to do so.
