Just over two months before the start of the 2021 season, there is still no valid agreement between Mercedes and seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton. It is known that the parties are mostly unable to wriggle to the green branch in the annual salary of the British pilot and for the duration of the contract. The Brackley team stressed there was no cause for concern, however, there may not be an announcement before the pre-season tests.
As for his tug of war, which has been running for more than a year, the international press is already biting the bone, and the former team owner, Eddie Jordan, who is now an Channel 4 F1 expert, is annoyed that there is no agreement even after that time. “There is obviously no agreement between the parties on the terms. I heard Hamilton wants more than Mercedes is willing to pay, ”he said in an interview with F1-Invester.
“This goes out to share the revenue of the team and to play an influential role within Daimler. If I were Daimler’s boss, I would have shown him a door a long time ago, saying he would either drive on our terms or go, ”continued the 72-year-old Irishman, who had once led his own Formula One team for 14 years.
I would tell him the same thing Bernie Ecclestone said after Ayrton Senna’s death: now we have to stop whining, everyone can be replaced. Sure, Bernie was also shaken by Senna’s death, as was everyone else, but she was the first to regain her composure. So, by now, Lewis should have understood that, too.
Jordan’s language was also sharp against Sebastian Vettel, stating that he certainly wouldn’t have signed a four-time world champion to Aston Martin for a “pathetic” performance in recent years. “I think Aston Martin made a mistake by signing with him,” he said of Ferrari after six seasons without a world title in German. “The last two years have been pathetic for Ferrari [Charles] Against Leclerc. “
“I don’t know why it was so bad since he won four World Cup titles, but I think he’s already past the peak of his career. I would have preferred Sergio Pérez, ”said the Mexican driver, who won the first victory of his career last year and eventually continued in the colors of Red Bull. Vettel also commented on his future teammate Lance Stroll: “It’s like a sackcloth, not knowing what it’s hiding. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s amazingly bad. Everything is just unbalanced. ”
