Lewis Hamilton reveals he's in his 'happy place' as he enters contract negotiations with Mercedes to delay F1 retirement | The Sun

LEWIS HAMILTON says he is in his "happy place" as he starts contract renegotiations with boss Toto Wolff.

The 37-year-old has admitted he plans to remain in F1 for the foreseeable future and has not yet put a date on when he will retire from the sport.

This season has been a testing year for the Mercedes man as he came to terms with the controversial end to last season and missing out on the world title to Max Verstappen.

To add to his misery, Mercedes have struggled to get to grips with the performance of their car, but that has not put Hamilton off from pledging his future to the team.

Ahead of the Mexican GP, Hamilton, who already has a contract in place for next year, said: "I have not put a limit on it to be honest. I'm planning to do a multi-year deal with my team.

"I really don't know what the next five years… we're still trying to work on that.

"I think that was perhaps something for me [to consider]. I'm just in a happy place in my life, a lot more grounded.

"I've got my home that I get to spend time in, in the UK, when I come to see the team for example, and the family come down.

"So, it's just a lot better set-up all round, and I feel like I can take the team to more championships."
