Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is hoping that he will finish his career as an F1 great, perhaps the greatest. But he would like to win his eighth championship before he hangs his boots and helmet. Since the German manufacturers have lost their grip on the title, fans are wondering if Hamilton should change teams. Who knows how long it will take Mercedes to build a championship-winning car again? But Lewis Hamilton is already 38 and at the twilight of his career. But time is running out, and the milestone of eight driver’s championships may remain untouched.

Moreover, the current contract between Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton is about to end after the 2023 season. But the latter has mentioned several times in the past that he won’t leave Mercedes as long as he and the team boss, Toto Wolff’s relationship is tight. However, until there is a confirmation, it will remain a hot topic of speculation and discussion in general. But recently, Lewis Hamilton gave some hints about his future plans as per Sky Sports F1.

The Briton has recently mentioned that he plans to be here in Formula One for at least another five years. Lewis Hamilton still has faith in Mercedes. That is why Lewis told reporters that he will be into his new contract after the end of the current season. Earlier, Toto Wolff also mentioned that “Contract Extension with Lewis Hamilton will be done in days, not even in weeks.” The Boss believes that money and the duration of the new contract won’t be the determining factors. Later, Hamilton also confirmed his team boss’s statement. It has been the center of a discussion that started a year ago.

However, coming to the middle of the year, there is still no clarity regarding confirmation of a new contract between the German team and the seven-time champion. The driver and the team principal believe that the contract extension will happen very soon, and there is nothing to worry about. But the Mercedes boss made such comments way before the Canadian Grand Prix. Despite that, there is no confirmation about the contract extension yet. Moreover, the reporters asked Hamilton if the recent failures of the Mercedes team had made him feel like moving on to another team. But the seven-time champion mentioned that he was not thinking in such a way.

The Seven-Time Champion Is Happy With The New Upgrades

Lewis Hamilton has a lot of times mentioned that the Brackley team had done a great job of introducing new upgrades to close the gap with their rivals. He is looking forward to the improvements after the addition of the new front wings. Moreover, he said that the team is taking baby steps but in the right direction. Hence, there is excitement in the Mercedes camp, especially for the next season.

Earlier, Hamilton mentioned that he is looking forward to fighting for the championship from the very start of the next season. It has become incredibly difficult for Mercedes to bounce back this season and hope to beat Red Bull for this year’s title. But the German Manufacturers believe they will get back to winning ways next year for sure.
