Ecclestone: The Hamilton and Mercedes saga is pure theatre

Lewis Hamilton does not yet have a drive for the 2021 F1 season, and Mercedes do not have a teammate for Valtteri Bottas, with a contract extension with Hamilton not yet signed, however former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone believes that the saga is pure theatre.

Hamilton is understood to want more than a one-year contract, whilst Mercedes have reportedly been using George Russell‘s performance at the Sakhir Grand Prix as leverage to only offer a solitary year to the defending World Champion.

“Everything that is going on here is pure theatre,” Ecclestone explained in an interview with Blick.

“It’s done so that Lewis, in particularly, remains in the headlines during these monotonous weeks.”
