Hamilton has said he wants to have clarity about his future before the end of July this year, unlike last year when negotiations dragged on forever.

We still have nineteen races to go, but it would be great to arrange something before the summer break so that we can have a clear picture of the future. ”

Hamilton has previously announced that he also wants to be on the starting grid with Mercedes in 2022, when the new rules will take effect in F1. But on the other hand, if he takes his eighth world title this year, there is a good chance that he will hang his helmet at the end of this season.
