Lewis Hamilton, the seven times Formula One world champion has opened up about his contract renewal that will see him stay with the Silver Arrows for more seasons to come. The Englishman man renewed his contract with Mercedes earlier this year and now has hinted for staying one more year.
The 36-year-old Maestro has won six of his seven titles with the Silver Arrows and the Formula One World certainly thinks that Mercedes has brought out the best in him. There were rumours that Hamilton might not extend his contract this year and Mercedes might take up George Russell in place of him. However, things turned out to be different and Hamilton is now chasing for his eighth title with the team.

When asked about his association with his team, the former McLaren driver stated that he feels great “working with Mercedes”.

The reigning champion further asserted in the interview, “It’s great that the team is becoming more inclusive and diverse, so if I continue to race, I will have more chance to influence the situation than if I left. So I do expect to stay, but for how long? I don’t know yet.”
Lewis, as stated by him hinted for a stay at Silverstone, but didn’t mention the year, this clearly shows that he’s now focused on his rivalry with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. Lewis currently leads the Driver’s Championship by 1 point, just ahead of Verstappen and will look forward to extend that lead in Portuguese Grand Prix this week.
If Hamilton manages to beat Verstappen at the end of the season, the win will fetch him eighth Formula One title, which will itself be a record breaker. It’ll be interesting to see how things turn out at the end of the season and if the Briton decides to stay back at his favourite paddock.
