Lewis Hamilton says the goal within his next two years at Mercedes is “100 per cent to be fighting and win a world championship”, but he’s also already thinking about his “next contract”.
Last week Lewis Hamilton finally signed a new two-year contract with Mercedes, which means he will drive for the team at least until the end of 2025.
Lewis says his goal is to win the championship within those two years.
“The goal within those two years is 100 per cent to be fighting and win a world championship,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.
“We are second in the constructors’ championship right now and we want to dethrone those who are at the top. I have 100 per cent faith that we can do that.”
However, he added he is already thinking about his contract beyond 2025.

“In terms of long-term, I’m thinking about my next contract – what that will look like, how long that will be. I plan to be here for a while.
“But it could change. I could come back next year and be like ‘damn it’. Who knows? You never know where you are going to be in life.
“But right now I’m very focused on staying positive every day. I know that’s not easy for anyone.
“Staying fit and healthy and trying to find that balance of enjoying yourself and your work – balance with family life and all those sort of things. I think I’ve got a pretty decent balance right now.
“That’s enabling me to really love what I’m doing,” Hamilton concluded.
