F1 Star Lewis Hamilton Signs New Mercedes Contract Until 2020 (Details)

Mercedes have confirmed that Lewis Hamilton has signed a new contract deal with 2020.

Hamilton's contract with Mercedes was due to expire at the end of the season and the two parties had been in talks over a new contract.

The team had hoped to reach an agreement before the new season begins in March but the uncertainty over his future continued.

Hamilton said: “I have been in the Mercedes Family since 1998.

“I am forever grateful for their continued support, love and protection over these years.

“I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved together and even more excited for the future!”

Earlier on Thursday morning, Mercedes released a picture of a blank contract with the caption "#Announce..." while Hamilton himself trailed the announcement on his Instagram story with the message "Got some exciting news coming today".

20 minutes later, Mercedes confirmed a two-year extension for Hamilton on his current deal.

"This contract extension has basically been a formality since Toto and I sat down during the winter, so it's good to put pen to paper, announce it and then get on with business as usual,” Hamilton said.

"I have been part of the Mercedes racing family for 20 years and I have never been happier inside a team than I am right now.

"We are on the same wavelength both on and off track - and I am looking forward to winning more in the future and shining even more light on the three-pointed star.

“I’m very confident that Mercedes is the right place to be over the coming years.

"Although we have enjoyed so much success together since 2013, Mercedes is hungrier than ever - from Dr Zetsche and the board members at the top of Daimler, through Toto and the team management, to every single person I meet in the corridors of Brixworth and Brackley.

"The competitive passion that burns bright inside me is shared by every single member of this group - always chasing the next improvement and digging even deeper to make sure we come out on top.

“I can't wait to see what we can achieve together in the next two-and-a-half seasons."
