This means Hamilton’s base salary will not be reduced from what it is right now. His salary, however, will also not increase, even if he opts for an extension. Hamilton reportedly had wanted a hike and a share of Mercedes’ commercial revenue from F1. Considering the pandemic and job cuts at parent Daimler, this was not on the table. 

Hamilton has still squeezed something his way with him securing two advertisement slots on his helmet and overalls. Hamilton has also secured a veto regards who his partner in the team will be in the case of an extension, especially with regards to Max Verstappen who is widely considered the next best driver on the grid.
