Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says it is simply a question of finding time to discuss a new contract with Lewis Hamilton. The world champion has yet to sign a new deal but is expected to stay at Mercedes in 2021 and beyond.
“We simply don’t have time to sit down and have a chat,” Wolff, who has a 30 percent share in Mercedes, told Crash.net. “It is the same is for my own contract, things are happening in the background and are being negotiated but it is not so simple because there is a shareholding and how we are continuing.
“It’s clear from the Daimler side and from my side that we want to continue to work with each other in the partnership we have. And for Lewis, I guess he wants to be in the quickest car and would like to have the quickest driver in our car, so it seems pretty obvious. We just need to find the time and sit down.”
