Information emerged today that shows that the agreement between Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes is reached, but with a contract that contemplates only one year of connection with another option. He will reportedly be paid around 40 million euros and, as part of the new agreement, the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion will now have private advertising space on his helmet and in his racing suit.
Much has been said recently, especially of values of around 50 million euros per year and three years of the contract, but apparently, the agreement is only one year, with another option in favor of English. Hamilton will probably intend to remain at the start of the new F1 era in 2022, but it has long been said that English will hardly stay another three years in F1. There is also talk of a veto clause for possible teammates, something that has not been seen in F1 for some time. This means, if confirmed, that if Mercedes intends to exchange Valtteri Bottas for George Russell in 2022 … Hamilton decides. It remains to wait for official information.
