Hamilton 's deal with Mercedes has been on full charge at the end of the season since 2007, and it is not known which team will compete in the 2019 season.
While the new deal was expected to be announced shortly, the British pilot said it was an ideal time for Melbourne to be announced.
However, while Hamilton has had rumors that he might retire, the British pilot says he has not yet reached the end of his career.
"I do not feel like I've just started the last part of my career," said the English pilot, "and I do not feel like I'm about to start my final contract."
"I do not really know how I feel after two or three years, but I'm getting ready for the 12th season and I'm really excited."
"I do not know where this feeling comes from, but I want to be perfect, and I want more than anything else in my life to have a perfect performance next weekend."
"I want to get ready for Melbourne, I want to achieve my goals, I want to be strong in training, I want to take pole, I want to win the race with a satisfactory advantage."
"I do not know how many seasons this season will start when I start a new season, but now I feel like myself." said.
