F1 fans and the whole world are wondering what is happening with Lewis Hamilton's new contract. There is still no agreement, although the Mercedes team has emphasized many times that things are close to agreement. There are many theories as to why this is taking so long, but no one knows exactly what it is.

In an interview with the media, Ferrari boss Frederic Vasseur commented on the whole chaos regarding Hamilton and the new contract. Frederic doesn't seem to want to waste energy on such things. "It’s the same situation with Lewis that it was the last 10 years.

They are in discussions and I don’t know what the issue is if there’s an issue or not. I am not focused at all on this, I am focused on the development of the team and the discussion is between Lewis and Toto, and not myself.

”- he said, as quoted by!

David Coulthard

A recent theory given by David Coulthard regarding Lewis Hamilton's new contract has come to light. According to David, there are several factors to consider when it comes to this story.

Hamilton happens to be an extremely popular human being in the sporting world as he is one of the best drivers in the world. There is a lot to be gained by getting a driver who is of this caliber; Not only in terms of quality in terms of competition, but also in terms of big sponsorship contracts, as well as greater popularity of the team.

"It is about what rights he retains in terms of his image, and what rights he sells to the team. Mercedes are buying more than just Lewis’ driving services. They are buying his promotional image and his PR image. I don’t think there is any realistic chance that Lewis will leave Mercedes unless there is a major fallout. And I can’t see that happening."
