The British driver is taking too long to renew with Mercedes
With less than a month to go before Mercedes comes into the new Formula One season, it remains to be seen whether Lewis Hamilton will remain in the team.
According to the press, the British driver wants 40 million euros per season until 2024, a premium of 10% of Liberty Media’s revenues if he gets new titles, in addition to an exclusive Mercedes AMG One. Requirements that Ralf Schumacher, brother of Michael Schumacher, is not in agreement.
“One thing is obvious; Formula 1 is stronger and bigger than any individual. It is February and the most important driver, seven times world champion, has not yet renewed. I think it is shameful, I have to say this honestly. Lewis must not forget the risk he is taking, there is still the possibility for Mercedes to put George Russell in that car. It has always been said that it was a question of money, but I hope it is not, “said former Jordan driver Williams and from Toyota to German Sky.
