“Naturally I think already last year, in Hungary last year I think Toto [Wolff] was talking about signing a contract,” said Hamilton.

“Of course the pandemic wasn’t then and you look back and you’re like maybe I should have signed it then.

“But the thing is I just think things happen at the right time and I definitely wasn’t ready mentally at the time.

“I wanted to give myself the space mentally to really think about what I want to do, think if there’s any adjustments for me and for the team, how can we get more out of each other – how can I give them an easier time.”

“I definitely don’t think it’s over. I want to continue. I think once we get the job done and the stress of the bubble and everything passes on, we can get to whatever comfortable or uncomfortable position we need to be in and we’ll get it done so we can continue.”

With five races remaining of the 2020 season, the earliest Hamilton can win his seventh title will be at the Turkish Grand Prix in November.

But Mercedes can seal a seventh successive constructors’ title as early as this weekend at Imola for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
