• Team principal and world champion to meet for talks
• Hamilton’s £40m-a-year deal runs out in November
Toto Wolff has said his priority is to ensure Lewis Hamilton signs a new contract with Mercedes. They will meet for talks at the team’s base in Brackley before the 2020 race car is officially launched on Friday.
The Mercedes team principal does not expect money to be a sticking point with Hamilton, whose deal reportedly worth £40m a year runs until the end of this season. The 35-year-old has been with the team since 2013 during which time he has won five of his six world championships.
