The saga related to Lewis Hamilton's new contract with Mercedes is still ongoing. The question is what will happen in the near future and whether the Briton will really continue his adventure with Mercedes. Toto Wolff often expresses optimism about the new collaboration through the media.
Mercedes fans, on the other hand, are increasingly afraid that this saga could end in the worst way. In a recent interview with the media, Wolff confirmed that the negotiations are ongoing, and once again expressed optimism and belief that everything will be fine.
“We’re still talking about,” -Wolff told CNBC, as quoted by crash.net
“We get this question basically every race weekend. We have such a good relationship that we dread the moment that we need to talk about money.
It is going to happen soon”.
Wolff emphasized that he has ongoing discussions with Hamilton, and expects that the negotiations will be completed before the Canadian GP. “We are talking more days than weeks.
We are trying hard [to get it done before the Canadian Grand Prix]. I will see him today and maybe we will talk about it”.
Toto Wolff on Lewis Hamilton and his importance
Toto is aware of what Hamilton means to their team.
They achieved incredible things together. It would be a real shame if this story ended, since then Mercedes would be in real trouble. "Lewis is the most important personality in the sport," -Wolff added. "He is so multi-faceted, not only with the racing, but also off track, so we need to keep him in the sport for as long as possible.
From a team's perspective, Lewis and Mercedes have gone back a long time. He has never raced for any other brand than Mercedes. We both joined the team in 2013 together, and from a professional relationship, we now have a friendship. It has been a wonderful time."
