The contract was finally signed. Especially in the case of Lewis Hamilton (38). Negotiations with the British were difficult again, but the result was no different. Lewis Hamilton and George Russell (25) will remain Mercedes drivers for at least another two years.
As all the racing stables prepare for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, one in particular has been hoping that the long-awaited deal will finally be completed. Numerous negotiations bore fruit.
Lewis Hamilton and Toto Wolff are shaking hands and will remain partners until 2025. His teammate George Russell will also remain affiliated with Mercedes until the end of that year.
Hamilton has been driving a Mercedes for 10 years. After years full of success and six world titles, he has now found the challenge since last season to try to shake Max Verstappen’s dominance with a smaller car.
His last victory was on December 5, 2021 in Jeddah. He currently ranks fourth in the World Cup rankings.
Hamilton: “Our story has not been written yet”
Lewis Hamilton is hard at work looking for new successes with the team: “Reaching the top does not happen quickly, it requires dedication, hard work and conviction. It has been an honor for us to make our way into the history books with this team.”
We are more hungry than ever to win.
“We are hungry to win more than ever. We have learned from every success, but also from every failure. We will continue to chase our dreams and fight no matter how big the challenge and we will come back to win.”
“Our story has not been written yet, we are committed to achieving more together and we will not stop until we do.”
Wolff: “The extension was just a formality”
Toto Wolff is also happy to extend his duo: “The strongest on the entire grid,” says the Mercedes boss. “The partnership with Lewis has been one of the most successful in the history of the sport. It was a formality for us to continue working together. It is great to now be able to announce this.”
