Lewis Hamilton’s contract negotiations have reportedly hit a brick wall with both sides unable to agree on the details of a new agreement. The Mercedes driver’s current deal expires at the end of the season with fresh terms yet to be signed up.
Both sides have publicly claimed a deal was close for months but reports now suggest the reason for the delay. It is understood Hamilton wants a bigger brand deal while Mercedes are only offering a shorter extension.
Meanwhile, Christian Horner has called out new F1 rule changes set to come into effect in 2024. The team principal has revealed his concerns over the cost of banning tyre blankets next season due to driver concerns.
