Mercedes optimistic of new £120m Lewis Hamilton deal in coming weeks

WATCH LIVE: Mercedes launch W09

There is no reason to rush anything, no panic, I'm not feeling under any pressure of any other drivers in there and Toto [Wolff, team boss] and Mercedes have no reason to feel that I'm talking to anybody else.

Hamilton will get his first taste of the new Mercedes W09 on Thursday afternoon as he takes the 2018 challenger out for another shakdown run at Silverstone.

Taking the driver's seat once against will be Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas for Mercedes-AMG, both of which had a go in the new auto at Silverstone for the first time for filming days. Lewis has been with the team for six years, we are talking about extending that to a very long time. "I have spoken with (Mercedes executive director) Toto Wolff, and we spoke about how we are committed to each other".

"I know that there is no one better so he's not going to be looking anywhere else, he knows that, and I know there is nobody better so I'm not looking anywhere else. On the contrary, he is eager to get back in the auto". "It's just about sorting out the details", said the 33-year-old.

Hamilton's contract with Mercedes will come to an end after the 2018 season, and after a successful campaign past year, it's unsurprising that an extension is being spoken about.

Wolff is also confident his star driver will not be distracted by the furore over his social media profiles.

But the British driver appeared in a buoyant mood here ahead of a campaign which could see him join Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as the only drivers in the sport's history to have won the championship on more than four occasions.

"Moving forward, there is a balance you have to strike".

"It's getting harder and harder for the team in Brixworth and the people in Brackley", said Hamilton, speaking at the launch of the W09 EQ Power+. Reliability will continue to be a key player in the sport as it has been in previous years. It is a critical time for the world. I think that shows my commitment. Social media is still the gateway to connect to fans, so it will be a part of my life.
