Regarding the date on which everything would be settled, the British was also very clear: “I hope we can start the discussions this week and hopefully have everything ready before Christmas. "He said.
On the subject, he also spoke Toto wolff, responsible for the structure. “We were delayed, although we always said that we would do it after winning the title. Then the virus delayed us another 10 days, two weeks ”, He pointed to the positive coronavirus that had Hamilton in quarantine.
"Now we just have to sit down, maybe it's virtual or live", closed the team-manager.
