Lewis Hamilton Signs with Mercedes through 2023
« on: July 06, 2021, 07:43:32 PM »
Lewis Hamilton has signed on with Mercedes for at least two more seasons. That means that both he & his rival Max Verstappen will be with their same teams through the end of the 2023 season.

The way F1 has changed over just a few generations... Max is the same age that Lewis was when Hamilton won his first championship... even though Max has already started 34 more races than Jackie Stewart did in his entire career.

Lets just hope Merc get the next gen of F1 car right, if not Lewis might feel it's best to cut and run after 2022 season.  ;)

Much as Lewis says he likes the new competition at the front of the pack should he fail to get the overall record this season, and there is no sign that the 8th championship is possible during his new contract his appetite for competition may lessen.

I'd rather see Merc struggle for a couple of seasons.  Really tired of them being on the podium and Toto scowling because he doesn't own the top two steps.

While the accomplishments of Merc/Hamilton are legendary, I'd love to see Lewis have success with a third team.

I'm also happy to see others winning... but never liked RBR, nor Max.  A Lando/McLaren or Russel/Williams win would be fantastic.

The way Lewis is backed it shows how great
Rosberg's title was.

Not sure what you're trying to say Dare?  :confused:

Are you saying Lewis gets preferential treatment over his team mate?

Or..... Car is built around him?

Or..... Team recognise his tremendous natural ability & pace and therefore give him the respect as de facto leader?

 :DntKnw: :DntKnw: :DntKnw:

I agree that Nico had to exceed his usual work rate, preparation and tactics, plus he had to up the aggression to achieve his WDC.
In that sense his title can be regarded as truly great. However I think Nico realised that bringing that effort and aggression to future seasons still may not be enough to best Lewis again - hence he retired.

Best get out at the top of your game than stay and have your status downgraded to being an also ran in the following years.

At this point I must mention that Lewis has only been beaten twice by a team mate in the points table in his completed 14 seasons in F1, once by Jenson (2011) and then by Nico (2016).

You could be right Dare, well about Bottas. Not sure that was case in Rosberg era though.

Ask Fisi when he was with Alonso or Ruben's and any
other Ferrari driver with MS
