Hamilton put an end to more than seven months of agonising contract negotiations to commit his future to both Formula One and Mercedes with a deal which will make him the sport's first £40million-a-year driver.

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he dismissed an approach from either Ferrari or Red Bull before signing his new contract with Mercedes.

"Congrats", said the world championship leader.

Hamilton's deal is worth a reported US$52 million per year, cementing the British star's status as Formula One's highest paid driver and his country's top earning sportsman.

"Yes, absolutely", he enthused.

Vettel is due to stay at Ferrari for a further two years.

"I'm literally from here".

"I just kept delaying it", he said. "I am very confident that we have some incredible chapters of our story together still to come".

"It's nice to see so many red shirts here, the passion for Ferrari was born in Italy but it spread all over the world and it got to Germany for sure", he said. Raikkonen made his Formula 1 debut with the team in 2001 and Vettel debuting with BMW Sauber in a one-off appearance at the 2007 U.S. Grand Prix, where he became the youngest driver to score points on his debut.

Vettel added that it was a pity for a car-manufacturing nation with such a prestigious heritage in motor sport to lose its Grand Prix.

The identity of Vettel's 2019 teammate for next season is still yet to be confirmed.

"I would be happy to continue like that but it is not for me to mention, or to decide", Vettel said in Hockenheim on Thursday. "I am very excited to keep Valtteri in the team and look forward to celebrating many more successes with him". He is a great guy.

"He has no rush". You could, but ultimately when you make a decision you always say "Oh shoot, I should have thought about that and I should have thought about that".

"Toto is a great human being and a great manager and we've got a great relationship and it's just gone from strength to strength", Hamilton told reporters. If they do so, Charles Leclerc could most definitely be in a Haas vehicle next season, if not, the paddock will be overjoyed to see the Monegasque driver in scarlet red overalls much earlier than everyone's expectations.
