The incredible amount of money Lewis Hamilton will receive over the next 3 years in Formula 1 has been revealed today. Lewis Hamilton can earn an impressive 164,835 pounds each day after signing his three-year deal with Mercedes, worth 60 million pounds!
In the last days, there have been several rumors about the future of the pilot with six world titles in the pipeline, especially since Ferrari also put him on the list of acquisitions. Hamilton’s current contract, worth 40 million pounds, expires at the end of the current season, but discussions for another three-year extension are close to completion.
“I really like where I am, so I don’t rush to make a quick decision. It is wise and smart for me to sit and think about what I want to do in the last part of my career, ” Hamilton said in December 2019.
Mercedes officials are ready to put on the table 60 million pounds, especially since there are not many options to replace a driver of Hamilton’s value.
Lewis Hamilton has six world titles under his belt, one with McLaren and five with Mercedes. The Briton has won the third consecutive title and fifth in Formula 1 in 2019, and Gazzetta dello Sport has written about Ferrari’s interest in the British champion.
“Lewis is definitely an outstanding driver. We can only be happy knowing he will be free from contract in 2021. We will discuss next season,” said Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto.
Lewis Hamilton has been at Mercedes since 2013 and said after winning the sixth career title he is convinced he will remain with the German team.
“I don’t see myself going anywhere. I love being at Mercedes, being part of the history of this brand,” said the 35-year-old driver.
