Hamilton seeks assurances about Tot Wolff's future before signing a new contract
Six-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton has a contract with Mercedes expiring after the end of the season 2020, and the Briton says he will require certain guarantees about the future of his boss, Tot Wolff, before extending his participation.
Toto Wolff has been at the helm of Mercedes' F1 team since the off-season 2013, and Hamilton has won five World Cup titles in his last six years. The British confirmed that the future of his boss will play an important role in deciding whether or not to race for Mercedes after the season 2020.
“Toto is almost a perfect team boss, and I don't want him to leave, especially if I'm left alone in F1. We have made a remarkable story in recent years and the new person would most likely put things a little differently. I think this is often the first step in the wrong direction. Undoubtedly, the decision will be taken by Toto, but it is also very important to me, and it will definitely affect my final decision. ”
