planning to carry on leading Mercedes' assault on the Formula One record books next year.

But, he added, almost teasingly, that "nothing is set in stone".

Hamilton was speaking on the eve of opening practice for this weekend's Turkish Grand Prix in which he
can draw level with Michael Schumacher as a seven-time world champion.

While sending a clear message that he loves his job, his sport and his team, he retained a caveat that
ensures he has a strong position in the long-delayed negotiations about his future, if and when they
happen.

To many observers, or listeners, it appeared that he wanted to make clear he will begin talks once his
seventh drivers' title is wrapped up –- but, at the same time, he wished to keep alive the idea that he might

"I believe I have the best contract that there is, in terms of how it's structured and in terms of time-
management," Hamilton explained.

"With the team that's put around me, I think it's been great."
