“We want to definitely finish the season and then find some quiet time over the winter like we have done last time around.

“That [the last contract talks] literally started in the winter holidays and lasted over two months. We haven’t done that. But he’s much more than a driver to us now.

“Although we’re not talking about a career end, it’s also important to speak about his role as an ambassador for Mercedes and the many sponsors that we have, and the implication he can have in our wider audience,” Wolff concluded.
