Toto Wolff will wait until the new Formula One season begins discussing a new contract with Lewis Hamilton, but the Mercedes boss has admitted that he could change his own role in & # 39; s highly conquering Silver Arrows.
With the delayed season set to begin in Austria in July, Wolff said he hoped to have an agreement in place "fairly soon" with six-time world champion Hamilton, but even so it would not be a move for Sebastian Vettel, who & # 39; will be leaving Ferrari this winter.
Hamilton, 35, is widely expected to agree to fresh conditions, but Wolff said no discussions have taken place during the final termination of & # 39; the sport in the middle of & # 39; e pandemic of coronavirus.
"We have not seen each other on lockdown, we have been in different parts of the world but in regular contact," said Wolff, who has supported Hamilton's attitude in proclaiming a lack of diversity in Formula One after the death of George Floyd in the United States.
& # 39; We have not worked on any agreement between us, but there is a lot of confidence, we have been together for a long time & now we did not have to take out the contract and read what we were writing, because it comes so naturally.
"Once racing is through, we will spend some time together, take out the contract, look at the timings, the numbers, the rights, and hopefully have something soon."
Last month, the driver market got an early shock with the surprising news that Vettel Ferrari would leave, which snapped Carlos Sainz as his replacement, while Daniel Ricciardo agreed a deal to take McLaren out of Renault.
