"Lewis wants more than Mercedes are willing to pay," Ex-F1 team boss

Lewis Hamilton is yet to agree on a new Mercedes deal. There are many speculations surrounding the situation and now, ex-F1 team boss Eddie Jordan who says he has “excellent sources I can rely on 100 per cent”, has claimed that Hamilton is simply asking for too much money. “Apparently the parties disagree on the terms. I just heard that Lewis wants more than Mercedes are willing to pay,” Jordan told F1 Insider this week. “It’s also about sharing the team’s income and having an influential role in the Mercedes group. If I were the boss of Daimler, I would show him the door – either you drive on our terms or you go. I would also tell him what Bernie Ecclestone said after Ayrton Senna’s death. “Even though Bernie was shocked and sad like everyone else, he was the first to regain his composure and said to us ‘now stop whining – everyone is replaceable’. Lewis should know that by now.” Earlier, it was reported that Daimler, which currently owns a third of the Mercedes F1 Team, blocked a $50 million per year deal that was set to be tabled to Hamilton in 2020.
