Lewis Hamilton expects his next Mercedes contract to be “a multi-year” deal, and says he doesn’t like the idea of retiring, and doesn’t feel he’s “there yet”.

Ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was asked if his performance at last Sunday’s United States Grand Prix has reignited his passion for racing, and if it will have an impact on his next Mercedes contract.

“I think it will be a multi-year contract,” the Briton said.

“There’s like this whole thing of [me] retiring that’s always lingering around and honestly, I don’t like the idea of it and I don’t feel like I’m there.

“We have a lot more work to do as a team, as individuals within the team, we have a lot more to do as a sport and I want to be a part of that shifting.

“I’m an ally to the sport and the work on the track and off the track. We’re talking about diversity, we’re getting more and more women into the sport, it’s not just about drivers.

“It’s about finding out what are those barriers are to women getting into a lot of the jobs you see in the areas back here, engineers, mechanics and so on, and giving them a platform.

“So there’s more work to do,” Lewis said in closing, and added his other reason for continuing in F1 was because “we have more winning to do”.
