The automotive titan, Mercedes, unveiled ahead of the upcoming Italian Grand Prix that the 38-year-old Hamilton is slated to sustain his driving odyssey with them through 2024 and 2025.
Hamilton’s renewed partnership is forecasted to amplify his earnings, potentially securing around £50 million annually.
Mercedes will maintain their distinct all-British ensemble, at least until the culmination of 2025, by retaining George Russell, aged 25, as Hamilton’s ally on the tracks.
Expressing gratitude and determination, Hamilton, whose inaugural career laps date back to 2007, conveyed, “We cultivate dreams of excellence daily and have devoted the preceding decade to the realization of that aspiration.”
“Ascendancy is a painstaking, enduring pursuit, demanding unwavering dedication and effort. Collaborating with this extraordinary team to etch our names in the annals of history has been a privilege,” he added.
Manifesting a voracious appetite for triumph, Hamilton underscored learnings from past successes and adversities alike. He affirmed the team’s relentless pursuit of victory, appreciating the support system that has bolstered his journey both on the racing circuits and beyond.
Hamilton, with an unparalleled legacy boasting 103 race victories and seven world championships, hasn’t savored the sweet taste of victory since the dramatic and controversial conclusion of the 2021 season in Abu Dhabi, where an elusive eighth world title slipped through his fingers, succumbing to Max Verstappen’s triumph.
