Brundle: Hamilton will ‘value himself the same as Max’
Mercedes has confirmed that Lewis Hamilton has signed a new two-year deal to stay in Formula 1 until at least the end of 2025, with reports suggesting he will earn £50m per year, making him the joint highest-paid driver along with Max Verstappen. Martin Brundle believes Hamilton will value himself as a seven-time world champion and would have negotiated a significant salary. Brundle also suggests that Hamilton’s decision to stay with Mercedes is logical given his history and experience with the team. However, Brundle thinks that Mercedes will need to redesign their current car concept if they want to compete with Red Bull in the future. He believes Hamilton’s desire to win an eighth world title is driving his decision to continue racing in F1.
