Lewis Hamilton says he believes his contract with Mercedes is ‘the best there is’ and doesn’t ‘feel like he’s finished’ with Formula 1.

During the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend Lewis Hamilton said there was ‘no guarantee’ that he’ll stay in Formula 1 beyond 2020. However, at the Turkish Grand Prix Thursday press conference he confirmed his intention to continue racing.

“I believe I have the best contract that there is, in terms of how it’s structured and in terms of time management,” said the Briton.

“With the team that’s put around me, I think it’s been great. But I’m always looking to see how we can improve.

“How can I be more efficient and do more for the partners? How can I position myself to do more for the team?

“Naturally, I think it’s easy just to go and sign that deal and continue not having to think of what’s afterwards.

“And I’m very conscious of the idea that I do want to continue with Mercedes, I would love to help them on this quest in pushing for change.

“They are taking their cars green, and electrifying more, and I want to help them on that road. I would like to help them in terms of pushing for diversity, because that’s also within the organization, as with every organization out there.

“There is not enough of it. So there’s a lot to discuss, and a lot to go through. I think it’s something we’ll do, if not after the job is done, then particularly at the end of the year.

“But nothing is set in stone. I think it’s just about talking about it. And at the moment, I don’t feel like I’m finished. I think there’s always areas to improve.

“I love racing, I love the challenge, and I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon,” concluded Hamilton.
