Lauda expects Monaco signing

Date published: May 6 2015

Niki Lauda is insisting there is "no problem" with Lewis Hamilton re-signing and that it should be done by Monaco.

Although Hamilton has been in contract talks with Mercedes for several months, the two parties have yet to put pen to paper.

Hamilton has blamed this on the fact that he is now doing his one negotiating and therefore has been having to read through pages and pages of legal documents.

But there are some who have began to question whether the Brit is considering a move elsewhere, namely Ferrari.

Lauda has denied this, saying it is only a matter of time before Hamilton re-signs.

"There is no problem," Lauda insisted to Austrian APA news agency.

"I expect us to announce something before Monte Carlo, possibly even earlier."

The Austrian weighed in on the World Champion's current form which has seen him win three of this four grands prix to take a 27-point lead in the Championship.

According to the triple World Champion, Hamilton is "on a roll in which everything is perfect … He is making no mistakes and can drive lap times no one else can achieve."
