Stefano Domenicali Makes Request to Mercedes as Lewis Hamilton’s Future Remains Unresolved
Stefano Domenicali, the CEO of Formula 1, has urged Mercedes to bring Lewis Hamilton back to winning ways as the seven-time World Champion’s new contract remains unsigned.
Hamilton, who equaled Michael Schumacher’s record of seven titles in 2020 and surpassed 100 pole positions and grand prix victories, is the most successful driver in F1 history. However, Mercedes has been struggling under the current regulations, and Hamilton has not secured a victory since the penultimate race of 2021, narrowly missing out on his eighth World Championship in controversial circumstances.
With Hamilton’s contract set to expire at the end of this season, there were brief rumors linking him to Ferrari in May. However, he has recently expressed his intention to remain with Mercedes, the team he joined from McLaren a decade ago, for the 2024 season and beyond.
