Briton Lewis Hamilton has signed a contract extension with Formula 1 team Mercedes until the end of the 2025 season.
Mercedes leaders made the announcement on Thursday, on the sidelines of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, where Hamilton has triumphed five times, but not since 2018.
“We dream every day of being the best and we have dedicated the last decade together to achieving this goal,” said Hamilton, 38.
“Being at the top doesn’t happen overnight or over a short period of time. It takes commitment, work and dedication and it was an honor to earn our place in the history books with this incredible team,” added the Briton.
His compatriot and teammate George Russell also extended his contract with Mercedes.
A seven-time world drivers’ champion, Hamilton has been with Mercedes since 2013 and has won six of his seven world titles with the team. However, he had two relatively poor seasons, and he hasn’t won a single race for two years.
He holds the record for most Formula 1 victories, with 103.
“We’ve never wanted to win so much,” admitted Hamilton. “We learned from every success, but also from every failure. We continue to pursue our dreams, we continue to fight no matter the challenge and we will win again.
“I’m grateful to the team that supported me on and off the track. Our story is not over, we are determined to achieve more together and we will not stop until we get there. »
