Hamilton's new deal could be worth 120 million pounds
While Toto Wolff said they wanted to sign a new deal with Lewis Hamilton, the British press reported that the deal was worth 120 million pounds.
Joining Mercedes in 2013, Hamilton has won three championships in the last four years and his contract ends at the end of 2018.
It is known that Mercedes and Hamilton are warmly looking forward to each other but there is not yet a deal, although it is entering the new season.
Some say Hamilton is waiting for Mercedes to wonder how he will be at the new moment.
Speaking at Barcelona, oto Wolff explained that they were very close to a new deal with Hamilton.
"We keep on talking to Lewis, I think his career is in the early stages, there are years ahead," Wolff said.
"It is clear that we want to continue with Lewis and we know he wants to continue with us."
"Lewis is the best pilot and Mercedes is the best team, which will be a win-win situation for us."
"I believe he can make two more deals, and if you look at Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher, they show that they can go on, even though they are at the end of their 30s." said.
Under the deal, Hamilton is expected to receive £ 40 million a year. According to the British press, the deal will be three years and the pilot at age three will earn £ 120 million in total.
