Mercedes confident F1 champion lewis Hamilton will sign new deal

Mercedes is confident Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton will sign a new contract soon, with his current deal expiring at the end of the year. The 30-year-old British driver clinched his second F1 title last year in dramatic style. Although talks have only just started on a new deal, the head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff expects negotiations to go smoothly.

“We are having discussions, very positive ones, which will come to a positive end soon. I have no doubt about that. There are no glitches at all,” Wolff said on Monday. Wolff played down the fact that negotiations started somewhat later than was anticipated. “We simply (didn’t start) the discussion over the winter because everybody needed a break to refocus. We met each other after the break one week ago and had a good discussion. There is no hurry,” he said.
