No cash bonus for Hamilton title – Dennis

Sun, 9 November 2008, 09:54

Nov.9 (GMM) McLaren boss Ron Dennis has countered reports that Lewis Hamilton is set to perhaps double his retainer as a reward for securing the British team’s first drivers’ title in nearly a decade

“We have no links to performance in any of our contracts with either drivers or sponsors,” the 61-year-old clarified

It was reported by the British press after Interlagos a week ago that Hamilton’s career could make him a billionaire, amid claims that McLaren may renegotiate his current contract to stave off the temptation of a switch to Ferrari

Dennis told The Times: “Lewis’s income is fixed for the duration of his contract. There is some flexibility in respect of what we can do together outside the contract, but his salary is not linked to success.”n
