Until there is actually work needed from him it is meaningless. Same with NFL players who negotiate a new contract after their current contract runs out and before the new season starts.

Have fun with those windmills!!
Anyone who says it’s ALL about the car, ignoring differences in performance between say Max and last two team mates (or just team mates in general) and then resorts to insults, is IMO not worth debating. I see a contract breakthrough (Lewis & Mercedes AMG Petronas) is being reported today, even when signed I have no doubt there will be some who will argue the team must be deluded. We probably all have our favourite drivers but I confess I struggle to understand the hatred certain drivers attract.

Keep up your knowledgeable input to the forum, always a pleasure to read.

Sadly I think the word is .. miracle. On a serious note, Williams already have one of the best drivers on the grid in Russell.

From the article he made $55 million U.S. from MB last year (plus other sources), he'll be ok regardless and they have lots of time to talk about it.

Indeed...Its a non story...Hamilton seems to be asking for the same salary as last year...hardly unreasonable. It will all be signed sooner or later.

The gpblog rag likes to gives its verstappen fans something to bunch their panties about.

Thanks for the kind words! I'm a real racing fan and though I'm biased towards Sir Lewis, I can see beyond that unlike many others!!

Your assessment is dead-on. If Turkey didn't convince anyone of that, they aren't worthy of being called F1 fans. Additionally, the contract info is hilarious because when parties are working from a place of trust and mutual benefit, the contract is a formality and what we are seeing is the dotting of "i's" and crossing of "t's". This will probably be the biggest let-down in the history of sports when it is signed...if it hasn't already occurred.

Cheers-MK
