Father urges Hamilton to sign new deal with McLaren
30 July, 2012
Anthony Hamilton, who was invited by his son to attend the Hungarian Grand Prix with his wife, is no longer involved in the management of the 2008 world champion.
And Hamilton snr also recently split with his other charge, Paul di Resta.
But after seeing 27-year-old Hamilton dominate at the Hungaroring with a win from pole, Anthony Hamilton sounded adamant that his son should stay at McLaren.
Hamilton’s lucrative contract is running out, and comments in the media made recently by Lewis and team supremo Ron Dennis indicate that negotiations over a new one are ‘delicate’.
“McLaren is where Lewis’s heart is,” Anthony said on British television Sky after the race.
“What’s really important in life is loyalty. It’s not all about the money.”
