Both Lewis Hamilon’s and Toto Wolff’s contracts with Mercedes run out at the end of 2020. The Briton says Wolff’s decision about the future will factor into his own decision to stay or go.
“Naturally, everything that happens behind closed doors is obviously always private with whoever it is you end up sitting with,” said Hamilton
“I think for many, many years I’ve never ever sat down and considered other options, because we’ve been just driving straight ahead into the path that we’ve been on.
“To be honest, I still think we’re on that path and I think there’s very little that’s going to shift it from that.
“I know Toto is also looking at his options in terms of his future and only he will know what is the best thing for him and his family.
“So I’m waiting to see what he’s doing with that.
“I love where I am so it’s definitely not a quick decision to do something else, but of course I think it’s only smart and wise for me to sit and think of what I want – if it is the last period or stage in my career.”
