Mercedes Formula One boss Toto Wolff jokingly suggested he would have to sell the factory to keep Lewis Hamilton. He said this after the Briton’s record 92nd career win in Portugal on Sunday.

Hamilton is out of contract at the end of the year. By which time the 35-year-old is likely to have won a record-equalling seventh championship and rank as the most successful driver in the history of the sport.

He and Wolff have yet to sit down and hammer out the details of a new deal in a season disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic but time is pushing on.

The reality is less drastic, with both sides keen to stay together and set more records in a sport they have dominated since the start of the V6 turbo hybrid era in 2014.

If Ferrari great Michael Schumacher’s record 91 wins once seemed an impossible target. Hamilton now looks likely to go well beyond 100 with an eighth title also no longer in the realms of fantasy.

Mercedes, meanwhile, are on the brink of becoming the first team to win seven successive constructors’ titles.

Hamilton, who has been with Mercedes since 2013. Already earns a reported 40 million pounds a year but the pandemic has changed the financial landscape for even the biggest companies.

The champion knows no other team can give him what he wants. No other team will feel like family in the way Mercedes does.

“I don’t think I’m at my peak. I’m in a good area for sure but I still want to continue to race. I don’t know how much longer that will be,” the 35-year-old told sky sports television.
