My relationship with Mercedes-Benz is absolutely as strong as my relationship with McLaren. On this issue, I am quite relaxed,” Hamilton was quoted saying.

In the meantime, Norbert Haug has rejected rumors that Mercedes-Benz has insisted for Dennis’ replacement. “I am now in my fourteenth year together with Ron, and in that period, only one out of all the other teams has been more successful.
