In the absence of the official announcement, which could arrive in the next few hours, it is a fact that the English Lewis Hamilton and the finnish Valtteri Bottas will remain as the team's driver duo Mercedes de F1 beyond 2020. At least that is clear from the words of Toto wolff, head of the team.
While the Nordic has already signed his new contract, the German team is still in talks with Hamilton, but both parties are optimistic for a new renewal.
“We are very happy with our couple of drivers. They are both fast. Valtteri is there on a bad day for Lewis. And on a good day Lewis is unbeatable "said Wolff an interview he gave to the German magazine Auto, Motor and Sport.
Furthermore, the "dynamic" and the "atmosphere" between the two is correct. “If you have two egomaniacs it would be difficult to win the Constructors' Cup, but they both respect the team and know the influence they have on everyone's mood. That is why they are the best solution for us ", stressed the team-manager.
Mercedes leads the 2020 season, with a win by Bottas (Austrian GP) in the opening race of the tournament and by Hamilton, in the next two (Styrian GP and Hungarian GP). The English, in addition, is at the forefront of the Pilots contest.
The tournament will continue this weekend with the British GP en Silverstone.
