Lewis Hamilton Extends Mercedes Stay With New Two-Year Deal

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton walks through the pit lane after his car broke down on track during qualifying for the F1 German Grand Prix in Hockenheim

He moved from Williams on a one-year deal as an emergency replacement for German driver Nico Rosberg, who stunned Mercedes - and all of F1 - by retiring days after winning the 2016 title. Sky Sports F1 is the only place to watch every Formula 1 Grand Prix, qualifying and practice session live in 2018. "I think now it's a good situation for us as a team, for me, for Lewis, for all the team, we can just focus on the tough battle for the rest of the year knowing all of us is going to stay at least for next year".

"I didn't really understand exactly what had happened so in my mind I was thinking get the vehicle back to the track, but they asked me to turn the auto off", said Hamilton, his dreams of a record-equalling fourth German GP win seemingly in tatters.

"This is one of the worst tracks for overtaking, so I'll do what I can from there".

As the press release reads, this latest trailer shows the German driver navigating a lap of the famous circuit whilst talking about his home race returning, and giving advice on how to get the best possible lap time.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso qualified 11th but Belgian team mate Stoffel Vandoorne was last.

30-love Wimbledon semifinals: Nadal-Djokovic, Isner-Anderson
It was the first time in the Open era that both men's semifinals went past 6-all in the deciding set of a Grand Slam event. Next door to us was Sloane Stephens, the US Open champion and one of many seeded women to exit the tournament early.

Indeed, since Hamilton joined Mercedes back in 2013, he's won 44 races and three world titles.

This would leave the English team with a big headache as their second driver, Stoffel Vandoorne, has been comprehensively outclassed by his more established teammate. But he has yet to win after 10 races this season.

The 20-year-old from Monaco was about 0.4 seconds quicker than his Sauber teammate Marcus Ericsson.

Raikkonen suits Sebastian Vettel as his wingman. He also knows his team will sacrifice the Finn when racing against the Mercedes team becomes a high-speed game of chess.

Is the best good enough? It was a strikingly odd response and one which suggested his bosses were unhappy with his performance, presumably failing to keep Lewis Hamilton behind him. Woud you bet against him reversing that, though?
