Hamilton at Mercedes for next three years – Lauda

Hamilton at Mercedes for next three years - Lauda
Defending world champions Mercedes’ Non-Executive Chairman Niki Lauda has issued a “guarantee” that Lewis Hamilton is staying at Mercedes.

The reigning world champion’s talks over a contract beyond 2015 have been publicly long and repeatedly delayed, but Lauda said earlier this week that the saga will have come to an end by the forthcoming Spanish grand prix.

“Lewis will drive for Mercedes next year, I can guarantee you that,” the F1 legend Lauda, who was instrumental in wooing Hamilton from McLaren in 2013, said.

“And another two years on top of that as well.”

Indeed, Hamilton had been linked with a shock move to Ferrari, but when asked during an interview with Germany’s RTL if he will be Sebastian Vettel’s next teammate wearing red, the Briton answered: “Not any time soon.”

Maurizio Arrivabene, the new Ferrari team boss, is also now playing down the Hamilton rumours.

“Did Lewis Hamilton call you?” he smiled to reporters last weekend in Bahrain. “Because he never called me.” (GMM)
