F1 news website RaceFans published a “report” saying that Lewis Hamilton has agreed to a new two-year deal with Mercedes. The “report” has since been deleted.

A news article published by the website has caused quite a stir, as it “reported” that Lewis Hamilton has agreed to a new two-year deal with Mercedes that would see him drive for the team until the end of 2025.

The article further stated that the deal gives Lewis an opportunity to assess whether he wants to continue racing for the team into the new engine regulations era, which starts in 2026.

The “report” caused quite a stir on social media, but RaceFans soon deleted the article and announced on their X account (former Twitter) that it was published by mistake.

“A few minutes ago we accidentally published a draft version of an article,” RaceFans wrote.

“This article was not complete, the information in it was not verified and it should not be regarded as reportage.

“The draft article has been removed and we apologise for our error,” the website concluded.

Since the supposed “news” continues to be shared on social media, and even some news websites, we wanted to point out that there is no indication that this is true.

Once any deal is made official, we will report it here on SilverArrows.Net, and in the meantime, any rumours will be clearly labelled as such.
