    It sounds like it not a matter "if" but "when" for the Hamilton contract to be signed. Taken from twitter.

    I'm signing up for a weekly popcorn shipment from Amazon as soon as the season starts. Everytime Hamilton speaks to a rival team boss or Toto smiles at Max, the show will be on full tilt. Must See TV returns. This will be better than waiting for the next Hill St. Blues episode.

    I think this is their last season together. All good things come to an end! And it makes sense with Verstapenn becoming available.

    Report: Hamilton seeking $50 million-a-year contract extension

    THEN, THE WHEELS CAME OFF…

    Daimler believed to have blocked Hamilton's new contract of four years and 200m dollars

    This means that the seven-time world champion doesn't currently have a team. The new deadline for him to renew, then, would be ahead of testing in Barcelona, which starts on March 2.

    Lewis Hamilton has been invited to drive one of Ferrari’s famous Formula 1 cars amid his contractual dispute with Mercedes.
    But the reigning world champions need not worry, as the car in question is from 1970 - 15 years before he was even born!

    It would NOT surprise me, if the Ferrari drive happens in the future.

    It kind of hard to take this story serious when the author writes

    Ferrari have changed one of their drivers for the 2021 camapign as four-time world champions Sebastian Vettel was released.

    The German has been replaced by McLaren ace Sergio Perez.
    When you get this basic fact wrong, are we even sure the author even know who Hamilton is?

    So is it Sainz or LeClerc who are getting dropped for 2022.. or is Lewis going to be Ferrari's reserve driver?

    Lets face it.. none of the above possibilities are very likely unless Sainz turns into a dud overnight.

    TBH, I just don’t know, BUT Lewis Hamilton wanted a four year deal, so he gets JUST one year and now can look else-where for the other three years if he wants to, which could mean Ferrari.

    Ferrari ARE so ruthless, if Lewis Hamilton is the driver that they want, then one of those drivers will be gone.

    Lewis Hamilton’s one-year contract at Mercedes means Ferrari and Red Bull rumours will rumble on all season
    The short-term nature of the deal is a compromise that leaves both sides with cards to play as F1 heads towards radical changes in 2022

    And because the teams are working within budget limitations, the likes of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull cannot spend their way past the rest of the grid. This, in theory at least, creates space for Hamilton to race elsewhere without diminishing his title chances.

    On the other hand, the commercial reality means only teams with deep pockets can spend the kind of dough on drivers – whose salaries are not included in the budget cap – that would secure Hamilton’s signature. So we are back to Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari.

    In Tom Rubythons' book about Ayrton Senna, called 'Fatal Weekend', it explains how Ayrton Senna and Luca Cordero di Montezemolo met up to discuss a contract for 1995. That is why I have posted previous links to meetings with Ferrari & Lewis Hamilton, it MAY be a sign of something, then again it could all come to nothing...
