Niki Lauda from Mercedes said they would continue with the team at the end of the season with Lewis Hamilton, who will finish the contract.
Hamilton's contract is over at the end of the season in Mercedes and it's a big curiosity that the British pilot will not stay in the team for the new season.
Although the name is mentioned with Ferrari, the Italian team has an agreement with Vettel, and it seems unlikely that Ferrari will go to the end of the deal because the two are likely to have problems together.
Mercedes / Hamilton was expected to sign a new contract early this season, but it was not expected. Hamilton pointed out Melbourne ahead, but then there was no new contract.
Auto Motor und Sport reported that the parties were in negotiations to conclude the contract in Bahrain, but this opinion was also negative.
There is an allegation that the parties can not agree on the money, and this issue was asked to Lauda.
"It can change depending on the atmosphere and situation, sometimes it is more expensive, and sometimes cheaper, depending on how the last races are going," Lauda said.
"But in this regard, the money was not a problem, we agreed in principle, we have no problems in this matter." said.
Hamilton's name goes to Red Bull, but it is known that the Austrian team does not want to pay a high price to Hamilton.
Lauda, "We only discuss the details, no problem, Lewis will continue to drive for us." said.
On the other side Daniel Ricciardo has rumors that he will pass to Mercedes, but Helmut Marko said that even if this was the case he would not have originated from the money because he could give Ricciardo the number he wanted.
"We have a very good bonus system, it will not be a problem," Marko said. said.
