Lewis Hamilton Requests Massive New Contract Worth £46 Million-A-Year

By Mike Parrott

Lewis Hamilton is requesting a bumper extension of £46 Million-a-year from Mercedes with his current contract running out this year.

Lewis Hamilton is arguably the best Formula One driver in the Sport's history. Only trailing Michael Schumacher by seven (Schumacher on 91, Hamilton on 84), Hamilton is requesting a pay-rise after his successful tenure with Mercedes.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Hamilton has asked for a four-year deal, believed to be worth somewhere in the region of a staggering £46 million per year.


Breaking down his potential pay packet, Hamilton would effectively be earning £3.8 million per month, £126,000 per day, £5,250 per hour, £88 per minute and £1.50 per second.

Hamilton's current contract was signed in 2018, in which he was given a two-year-deal for £40 Million-a-year.

The £6 Million increase will put him closer to Schumacher's level in the Fourmula One rich list with Schumacher clearly sitting atop of it.


With pre-season testing due to begin in earnest in February, Mercedes will want to get this sewn up to avoid it becoming a distraction during the season.

If they can secure another four years of Hamilton though, we could be in for much of the same in the coming seasons.

Its already looking like Mercedes' year yet again.
