Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says the final world champion Lewis Hamilton is confident they will extend the deal at the end of the season.
Hamilton's contract, which joined Mercedes in 2013 and managed to win three championships by 2018, is closing at the end of the season.
The parties seemed to sign a new deal before the new season but there were no agreements and there were no signs of agreement in the remaining four races.
Despite positive statements by both Mercedes and Hamilton, the rumors that performance in Mercedes might affect the British pilot's decision are wandering.
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff, however, is confident Mercedes will sign a new contract with Hamilton.
Wolff is pointing to "intense work" as a reason for not signing the contract until now.
"We do not see it for a few days and weeks because we have to work and move with the team, and our work is really intense."
"At the moment, this is the focus of everyone, including Lewis, to make our team the first priority."
"We are really very compatible with each other about our future expectations, everything is about just sitting down and finding time to talk."
It is thought that Wolff pointed out the summer months for the new deal.
