Lewis Hamilton has been performed for the Stuttgart team for already 7 years: the driver began his incredible winning story with Mercedes in 2013. This season, at US Grand Prix Lewis won his 6th world title, 5 of which he produced as a part of Mercedes team.
The current contract of the driver and team expires at the end of 2020. Although Lewis hinted, he expects to continue performances after this time, the new regulations of the championship can change the balance of power in the peloton and affect the Hamilton’s decision.
However, now Lewis said the idea of continuing to cooperate with the team even after finishing the career in Formula 1 as a driver, looks quite attractive to him.
"Nothing is set in stone but I definitely am enjoying what I’m doing right now and I see no reason in stopping because I love what I do," – Lewis said.
"When there’s a challenge, a whole massive change in the regulations, that’s a huge challenge for me as a driver to use my skills and the things I’ve learned over the years to help steer the team in the right direction to develop the fastest car and still develop consistencies and punch out performances."
"I don’t particularly see myself going anywhere else. I love being at Mercedes. I love being part of the brand and the history. The idea of staying with Mercedes – I’ve been with them since I was 13 years old, even beyond Formula 1 – and probably heavily involved within Daimler and beyond, is quite attractive. So, we’ll see how that goes."
