Formula 1: Sergio Perez will not replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes.

“Lewis and I, even in the face of a less encouraging scenario like the start of this season, we are always aligned in wanting to try to improve things and in wanting to be together next year. And for a couple of months we have been telling each other that we could go on, maybe five or 10 years, right? So none of this is true,” Wolff added.

Wolff has likewise proposed he had conversed with Hamilton about his F1 future and recommended he could come out on top for additional championships with the Silver Arrows.

“Of course, he would have been the only [driver] to hold this record, but I think he can be equally proud of having seven titles like Michael [Schumacher], I think this milestone is also very historic and important. But the goal is to get back to having the right performance soon, and if we return to providing Lewis with a good car, why just think of eight world titles? Why not ten?”,” Wolff concluded.
