Toto Wolff reveals Lewis Hamilton’s new Mercedes contract should be signed in a few days, but he still doesn’t want to commit to a date.

Lewis Hamilton’s current contract with Mercedes is set to expire at the end of 2023, so Lewis’ future has been a top story in the F1 media.

While talking to CNGC’s “Squawk on the Street”, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff was asked when the deal is expected to be done.

“We are still talking, we get this question basically every race weekend,” the Austrian said.

“We’ve got such a good relationship we dread the moment we have to talk about money. It is going to happen soon.”

He was then asked to explain what he means by “soon”.

“Soon, I think we’re talking more days than weeks but if I commit to a date now then everyone is going to ask me over the weekend what happened to the days.”

When the reporter told him he could prevent that by getting the contract signed ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix, Toto said:

“We are trying hard but at least I get to see him today and maybe we will talk about it,” he concluded.
