After the triumph in Barcelona GP, Lewis Hamilton, British driver of Mercedes, talked about the renewal negotiations with the German team. He said: "We don't want to be in the position we were in in January and February anymore, it ruined my whole winter and I'm sure it didn't help Toto, in terms of being able to disconnect and relax, it was like not having a real pause.
We have to be reasonable, we don't want to rush anything but I think we have to start discussions. They are very complex, it is never an easy procedure and I hope we can start talking about it soon, as long as it does not interfere with the real work.
We still have 19 races to go but it would be great to find something in place before that break. in this way we could experience the detachment phase and with a clear picture of the future." In an Interview with the British newspaper Guardian, Toto Wolff spoke of the determination to discuss a multi-season agreement, as were the previous three-year renewals: "It should be more than a year, we don't want to find ourselves in a stressful situation every year, when we are totally committed to trying.
to win the races, with the need to negotiate the contract. We just need to spend a day or two together, touch on this issue and decide what the difficult aspects are. Then we will have to close the door and not go out until we have solved it.
It is the best way, which works and has worked for us in the past."
