It now appears as if F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton’s fate has been sealed as racing with team Mercedes for at least another year.
Mercedes on Thursday evening issued a tweet that stopped short very near officially confirming a new deal with Hamilton to have been officially set in stone. Hamilton and Mercedes previously both expressed the hope that a new deal would be inked sooner rather than later – and it now seems as if each have had their pre-Christmas wish come true.
Hamilton was also recently quoted as having declared it his plan and desire to continue driving for Mercedes in 2021. The champion driver after the season finale in Abu Dhabi spoke about how as a “team” much more could be achieved both on the track as well as away from it. His name has furthermore already been published as a 2021 driver for Mercedes by the FIA on its latest annual entry list. The expectation is that Hamilton will stay on with team Mercedes for at least another year.
More positive news is that the FIA has in the meantime developed a reportedly 100% sustainable fuel. The fuel, which will aim to help the sport reach a zero-carbon rate by at least 2030, has been presented to Formula One for comments and approval. According to early indications, Formula 1 is set to announce new engine regulations to apply from 2026 onwards, with 10% sustainable fuel being made mandatory from as early as next year.
The fuel submitted by the FIA has reportedly been refined 100% from bio-waste.
