- World champion sticks with team until end of 2023 season
- ‘I’m excited we’re going to continue our partnership’
Lewis Hamilton has committed his Formula One future to Mercedes by signing a new two-year deal. The contract extension, announced on qualifying day at the Austrian Grand Prix, means the 36-year-old British driver will remain with the Silver Arrows until at least the end of 2023. Hamilton’s new deal is understood to be worth £40m a year.
Hamilton, who trails Max Verstappen by 18 points in his bid for a record-breaking eighth world title, moved to Mercedes in 2013 and has won six of his seven world drivers’ championships with the team.
