Barcelona - Lewis Hamilton says even Mercedes' top bosses are on his side regarding the extension of his contract.

Whether the reigning world champion stays at the German team beyond 2018 is technically not clear.

"We are not far from finalising things. It will hopefully happen in the near future." Hamilton told DPA news agency after winning in Barcelona.

"Everything is ok. We've just had other priorities in recent weeks. We wanted to take care of the racing car.

"The ink is almost dry, and when it is, we'll let you know."
