Lewis Hamilton’s one-year Mercedes deal could be his swansong

  • Seven-times world champion’s extension announced
  • Toto Wolff: ‘Lewis needs to decide what his future holds’

Lewis Hamilton will race on in Formula One this season but it may yet be the swansong to an extraordinary career. The world champion has agreed a new deal with his Mercedes team but only for this year, leaving the 36-year-old still to consider whether to bring the curtain down after securing seven titles and potentially an eighth, or continue in pursuit of even greater achievements.

Hamilton’s deal was concluded after a protracted process hampered by the pandemic – the first race is set to take place in Bahrain on 28 March – and he said he was excited by the prospect of another season. “Our team has achieved incredible things together and we look forward to building on our success even further,” he said.
