Wolff denies arguing over money with Hamilton

Toto Wolff has played down suggestions that it is Lewis Hamilton’s salary demands that are holding up a 2021 contract for the seven time world champion. It is rumoured that Mercedes is not willing to meet Hamilton’s demands amid the economic impact of coronavirus – especially with a salary cap looming in Formula 1. At the same time, Wolff said the important thing for Mercedes is “how we can use him as a brand ambassador – how many days is he available off the track”. “I take his health into account but we are absolutely in agreement on the general conditions,” said Wolff. Austrian Wolff played down the risk that 35-year-old Hamilton could take the opportunity to either retire or switch to another team.
