It was already tentatively assumed, but Mercedes has now made it official: Lewis Hamilton is back. Actually, he never left, as the Brit simply has a current contract in his pocket, but his continued silence and statements from Toto Wolff sparked a lot of speculation.
Mercedes announces Hamilton’s return
Recently Hamilton made himself heard again after a radio silence of almost two months. Then he appeared to be on the attendance list of Mercedes’ car launch, so it began to look increasingly likely that the seven-time world champion would return.
So now Mercedes seems to be making it official. On social media the team shows a picture of Hamilton, accompanied by the text: “44 is back”. So it looks like the 37-year-old Briton is not going anywhere for the time being.
