Formula One: Lewis Hamilton Salary at Mercedes 2013
Lewis Hamilton will on Friday provide an finish among the most controversial and lengthy-running transfer sagas in Formula One history by announcing that he’s departing McLaren, they he’s been with more than half his existence, for rivals Mercedes inside a three-year deal that could be worth around $100million (£61.6million).
Although Hamilton’s salary at Mercedes is going to be bigger compared to one he was provided by McLaren – and that he has more chance to generate money through personal sponsorships and endorsements – sources near to the Englishman insist he’s switched teams having a view to lengthy-term performance.
The announcement is nearly sure to finish the job from the most successful driver in Formula One, seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, whose return 3 years ago towards the sport he once bestrode just like a colossus palpably unsuccessful to meet anticipation.
It’s not obvious whether Schumacher is going to be offered some kind of ambassadorial or management role using the Brackley team.
