Uncertainty over Lewis Hamilton’s future in F1 grows with contract talks on hold while he parties at Coachella

LEWIS HAMILTON did not cut the image of a man who was sweating over his Formula One future when he turned up at the Coachella festival last week. But while he enjoyed himself, it also meant that his contract negotiations with Mercedes were also placed on hold. With five GPs in Azerbaijan, Miami, Imola, Monaco and Barcelona in just six weeks, will Mercedes and Hamilton want to spend any time off haggling over a contract?. In Saudi Arabia for the GP he said he was feeling fit and wanted to continue to drive for Mercedes in F1. A cynic could suggest that by failing to negotiate a deal, when publicly saying he wanted to, Hamilton and Mercedes are at odds on the contract. Should Hamilton decide not to stay and walk away, then Mercedes will have an easy solution to pop him alongside Russell.
