The record-breaking partnership between Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton will continue on for another couple of years yet.

Toto Wolff told a young junior presenter on Sky Germany after the Hungarian Grand Prix that the 38-year-old is signing a new two-year deal. Although it wasn’t meant to be slipped out as the Austrian had said he couldn’t mention it officially and whispered it to him, the Mercedes team boss was heard saying it.

In his 211 races to date with Mercedes — the most a driver has ever started with one team — over the course of 11 seasons, Hamilton has won six Drivers Championships and eight Constructors’ Championships.

The Brit has also scored 82 wins in his time with the team, as well as breaking the records for most victories, podiums and poles. He’s tied with Michael Schumacher as a seven-time World Champion.

There was never any real doubt about Hamilton committing his future to Mercedes in spite of speculation from some media outlets earlier in the season.

It seems certain now Hamilton will end his career driving only Mercedes-powered cars in Formula One. He spent six seasons at McLaren-Mercedes before joining the works team in 2013.
