Stevenage star Lewis Hamilton has agreed a two-year contract extension with Mercedes through to the end of the 2020 Formula One season.

It ends a long-running contract saga with a deal reported to be worth up to £40m a year to the four-time world champion.

It cements the 33-year-old's status as Britain's biggest sporting earner as well as the best-paid driver in Formula One history.

"I have been part of the Mercedes racing family for 20 years and I have never been happier inside a team than I am right now.

"We are on the same wavelength both on and off track - and I am looking forward to winning more in the future and shining even more light on the three-pointed star. I'm very confident that Mercedes is the right place to be over the coming years."
