Lewis Hamilton expects to sign new Mercedes contract before season starts

The pair then got into a green Mercedes AMG GT R to hurtle around the Silverstone track

He hopes, and possibly expects, this vehicle will propel him to a fifth world championship.

"And I'm sure we'll look back at the old vehicle. we often look at the old cars and they look so dated". But over that time we spoke very often.

"The sooner the better it is". It's just about sorting out the details always. I'm not under pressure from any other drivers and Mercedes have no need to talk to anybody else.

"He's been here six years so we are talking about extending that to a very long time with the same driver in the same team".

The Austrian, whose team have won the last four championships and are favourites for a fifth with Lewis Hamilton, is no fan of the mandatory new "halo" head protection device. The W09 name is a procession of the naming scheme used since the W01 raced in 2010, in keeping with the name scheme used on the company's Grand Prix racing cars prior to the advent of Formula 1 as we know it today.

"Moving forward, there is a balance you have to strike".

"In the whole six years I've been here, I haven't spoken to another team once".

"The W08 was the fastest auto on the grid, scoring the highest number of pole positions and winning the most races a year ago". It is a critical time for the world.

Nearly everyone is in agreement that the market is expected to be in balance before the OPEC/NOPEC deal is expected to end. That means the figures give a more mixed picture for OPEC. "What´s important is how we keep it together", Mazroui said.

"He is extremely motivated and coming back after the winter break and I don't think that lack of hunger is an issue for him". Social media is still the gateway to connect to fans, so it will be a part of my life. I went surfing one of the days when it was raining. "We've been working very closely with our colleagues in Brackley, trying to understand the best overall integration in the chassis, the transmission and the aerodynamic surfaces".

Since Mercedes started working on the new vehicle almost 7,000 drawn parts have been created, over 40,000 components have been through non-destructive testing inspection.

"I go for the biggest waves and get barrelled over!" For sure there has been a lot of effort on the new vehicle and the attention to detail is impressive. It is said to be an improvement over last year's auto in nearly every aspect.

Wolff was not, however, impressed with the cockpit halo which all F1 cars will wear from this season to protect the driver from flying debris.

Team boss Toto Wolff echoed the sentiments of his star attraction.

"It doesn't make any sense to put ourselves under pressure", said Wolff.

"What we have implemented is aesthetically not appealing and we need to really tackle that and come up with a solution that simply looks better", he added.
