F1 » Hamilton close to confirming new Mercedes deal

Mercedes valued the global marketing impact of winning the championship last year at a little over 2.5 billion U.S. dollars. The F1 team itself is in the black. In this respect a driver like Hamilton is "worth the money" considering his championship form last year and current, and that any possible big name replacement would command a high salary as well. F1 is a business, and there is an apt quote worth remembering for anyone who is negotiating a personal services contract, big or small. "You are never paid what you are worth, you are paid what you can negotiate. This next establishes your value." If Lewis pulls this off then more power to him.

F1 » Ferrari doesn’t need Hamilton, hints at Bottas

Just as drivers have always wanted to drive for Ferrari, Ferrari has often gone after the successful drivers with little regard to fit within the team. I thought they might be considering Hamilton and I suspect they still are. His comments could concern the asking price. But i think Hamilton at Ferrari would be a mistake. I also said several months ago that I though Bottas might be in the cards, and it appears to be a possibility. He would be a very good choice. But with Seb now returning to top form there are many other potential young racers for consideration. I believe Kimi will continue to show great form, he will remain at Ferrari at least another year, and we will be having this same discussion in a year's time but with potentially different names tossed about. F1 silly season begins by face four. Seems right.
