Cape Town - With Sebastian Vettel committing his future to Ferrari, Lewis Hamilton is reportedly keen to sign a new three-year contract with Mercedes.

Last week Ferrari put an end to rumours that Vettel could be off to Mercedes in 2019 by signing the German to a new three-year deal.

And with the German committed to his team, the Mail on Sunday is reporting that Hamilton is now ready to put pen to paper on a new Mercedes deal.

"Lewis Hamilton has asked Mercedes for a new three-year contract, a deal that would tie him to the World Champion team until 2021," Jonathan McEvoy reports.

"The Mail on Sunday understands Hamilton is likely to be granted his wish — with only the money left to be haggled over — despite Mercedes chairman Niki Lauda letting slip that he spoke to Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel about bringing him in as a replacement for the Briton."

Hamilton's current Mercedes contract expires at the end of next season.
