Lewis Hamilton’s £30m compromise deal with Mercedes hints at a FINAL season for the seven-time world champion after signing for just one year… as team boss Toto Wolff eyes up Max Verstappen as a driver for 2022

Lewis Hamilton has finally signed a new contract, but it is just for one year and raises the prospect that 2021 may represent his farewell to Mercedes and perhaps Formula One itself. ‘On the other side, the team need to decide long-term what we are going to do about drivers. We will then look beyond this year and think what the line-up is in 2022 and beyond. Hamilton, in turn, is perhaps learning the fine line between being master of everything one moment and on the skid row of your career the next. Wolff did Hamilton the courtesy of saying the length of the deal was agreed ‘jointly’.
