Keeping race-winning trophies has been no real factor when discussing a new contract with Lewis Hamilton. That is according to Ron Dennis, head of the McLaren Group, with his driver having requested so much earlier this season.
According to McLaren tradition, any winning driver receives a replica of their silverware whereas the original copy is kept in the team’s Woking factory. Talking to the media earlier this year, Hamilton insisted that keeping his trophies would be a major reason in whether or not he would sign a new contract. The team stresses that this is no significant demand.
“I think a lot’s been made about that, but it’s never really been an issue,” Dennis told Sky Sports after Hamilton dominated the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.
“We’ve always been a very compromising team. We’re about winning and whoever gets something can be discussed afterwards.”
By triumphing at Monza, Hamilton becomes Fernando Alonso’s closest challenger atop the Drivers’ Championship. With seven races remaining, the margin is 37 points.
