The British driver currently has a contract with Mercedes until the end of the season.
Since the seven-time world champion has a certified cooperation with the German team, by the end of 2023, the time is slowly coming to start new negotiations. Mercedes failed to make a competitive car this year, which happened for the first time in the hybrid era. Due to that, there were allegations that Hamilton may have lost interest in staying where he is if he does not get better conditions on the track next season. The head of the team also spoke up and said that it was still early to start some more serious negotiations.
“Have we started negotiations on a contract in 2024?” Yes, back in June 2022. No, we are happy with Lewis and so there is no doubt that we will be in a better position next year. But it is still early for negotiations. When I said that, I couldn’t wish for a better driving pair. They work so well, they even ask each other questions at briefings. It would probably be different if they were both at the top. ” said Wolff.
