The delay in renewal of Lewis Hamilton’s contract with the Mercedes team keep running rivers of ink. A delay unexpected and worrying, which invites you to think about complications that are arising in the process, especially because of the demands of the Formula 1 world heptacampéon.
The last to make public his opinion on the matter has been Eddie Jordan, former owner of the team that bore his surname and now grand prix analyst for different media. Their forecasts are usually accurate and highly valued, so it’s surprising the hardness with which he has referred to this case in statements to ‘F1 Insider’: “I have heard that the parties they disagree, that Hamilton wants more than they are willing to pay him. Also what do you want part of the team’s income and have an influential role in decisions. If I were the boss of Daimler, I would show you the door: you drive according to our conditions or you leave ”.
And he explains the crudeness of his approach with a equally graphic example: “I would say (a Hamilton) what Ecclestone said after the death of Ayrton Senna. Bernie was shocked and sad like everyone, but he was the first to regain his composure and told us: ‘Now stop whining. Everyone is replaceable. ‘ I think Hamilton should know by now. ”
Jordan otorga credibility to these arguments for his position on the stage of the great prizes: “I have excellent sources that I can trust 100%, plus common sense. I still have many contacts in F1, I speak to Ecclestone on the phone on regular basis”.
