Lewis Hamilton HUGE contract revelation: F1 star's future addressed with confident claim

Mercedes launch 2018 F1 car but Toto Wolff slams halo: 'If you gave me a chainsaw I would cut it off'

"I think we need to look after the driver's safety but what we have implemented is aesthetically not appealing".

"We've taken some of the good from past year, but there were circuits that we went to where we weren't that strong, so hopefully we've found a compromise which will favour a majority of the grand prix circuits".

Ugly from the outside, the onboard footage does little to convince that the Aeroscreen wouldn't have made a better alternative.

The Stevenage-born racer is expected to sign a new three-year contract with the team worth around £120m and Wolff says the deal is close too being confirmed. Despite the concept originally being suggested by Mercedes, Wolff has urged the FIA to come up with a better-looking solution as soon as possible. The minute you put the date out, you are going to be remembered about the date and it doesn't make any sense to put ourselves under pressure.

Formula successfully entered the world of esports in 2017 but reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton doesn't feel that computer games will ever produce a real-world championship-winning driver.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas have put the first miles on Mercedes' new W09 vehicle at the world champion's Silverstone shakedown. "I have spoken with [Mercedes executive director] Toto Wolff, and we spoke about how we are committed to each other".

"It is just the details, so hopefully it's done before the start of the season, before the first race, but there's no rush, and no panic".

"I will continue to show the world what I am doing, but it is about being more strategic in what I do show and don't show".

"I don't think - you can never say never, but I know some guys and girlfriends who are better gaming, then you go to a auto and they don't have a clue".

Mercedes have launched the vehicle they will hope can better the 12 race wins and 15 pole positions achieved en route to securing a fourth straight Constructors' Championship in 2017.

The new auto appears to be a design evolution of last year's successful vehicle.

And while the competitive picture for 2018 will not start to be revealed until winter testing begins next week, Hamilton is anticipating the new campaign to start how the last finished.

"I'm really hopeful that this year we've ironed out a lot of the creases".

"A couple of weeks would be a realistic target".
