Formula 1 Englishman could leave after next season
Mercedes are preparing for every eventuality as speculation over Lewis Hamilton‘s future with the team grows.
The seven-time Formula 1 world champion is yet to sign a new deal with Mercedes, with his current contract expiring at the end of the 2021 season.
“It doesn’t worry me at all, because I will always respect Lewis’ decisions,” Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff told Autosport.com.
“Whether this is staying with us for a long time, or whether that means leaving the sport and pursuing different interests.
“I think we need to be ready for all kinds of curveballs being thrown at us.
“But at the same time, we talk a lot, and we are very transparent with each other.
“I think there is more to achieve together.”
