Lewis Hamilton wants to continue in Formula 1 – but will take his time over finalising a new contract.

The British driver, who clinched his sixth world title at the US Grand Prix, is almost certain to stay at Mercedes.

“When you’ve been with a team for so long, we are kind of joined at the hip,” the 34-year-old said. “All that detail can take its time.

“But you need to set some time aside to say ‘where are we, what’s the next goal, what else are we planning?'”

Hamilton’s current Mercedes contract runs until the end of the 2020 season.

Speaking before this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix, he said one of the issues on which he is looking for an answer is the future of team boss Toto Wolff, who has been linked in some quarters with a potential move to running Formula 1.

“It’s a difficult one because I know being stuck in one position for too long can not always be a positive so I always want people to spread their wings and do what is best for their careers. Only he knows what that is,” Hamilton said.
