According to the Daily Mail, Lewis Hamilton agreed in principle to the offer of Mercedes, which is offering him 120 million pounds for three years extension.
Hamilton is said to want a little more money, but Daimler is not enthusiastic about the demands of the six-time world champion . Both sides are expected to coordinate so that the Briton will remain a member of the silver arrow team at least to the end of the 2023 season, and at the same time, he should earn approximately 40 million pounds per year.
Hamilton recently said about the negotiations on the new contract:
“I am not the one who would always continue with the same things, so of course I always look at all the details, I make sure everything is clearly defined. I want us to continue to grow together as a team, and our values, goals and ambitions must be aligned. ”
According to some information, Hamilton first demanded an annual salary of 60million, but the Briton is expected to make concessions in the end, also due to the current crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
