Lewis Hamilton has represented Mercedes for more than ten years, but his demands and expectations have reportedly taken a toll on the team. Hamilton has achieved six world championships with Mercedes, and his determination to win an eighth title has added pressure to the team. Currently in second place with 247 points, Mercedes’ previous performance issues make it unlikely for them to excel in the remaining season. James Vowles, a former confidante of Toto Wolff, acknowledges that the team’s hard work has left them exhausted. Hamilton’s contract negotiations with Mercedes have also encountered difficulties, with both sides claiming the process is more complex than anticipated. Nevertheless, Hamilton intends to remain with the team and continue striving for success. The ongoing negotiations have caused emotional highs and lows for both parties involved. Overall, this situation has left some fans questioning the future of Mercedes.
