Toto Wolff admits Hamilton will need to leave Mercedes if car does not improve

Hamilton’s £40m-a-year contract with the Silver Arrows expires at the end of the season and his future is under the microscope following their poor start to 2023. Although team principal Wolff remains convinced that Hamilton, 38, will pen a new deal, he also said that his star driver’s head could be turned as he pursues a record eighth world championship. “If Lewis wants to win another championship he needs to make sure he has the car,” said Wolff. But Wolff added: “I am absolutely confident [Hamilton will stay]. In Bahrain, Hamilton accused Mercedes of ignoring him on the development of this season’s machine. “There are emotions at play with him, with me and with many others in the team,” said Wolff.
