Remarkable news in the run-up to the new F1 season because, according to ‘Sportsmail’, seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has said goodbye to his right-hand man and good friend Marc Hynes. The news follows shortly after the announcement of Hamilton’s contract extension by just one year at Mercedes.
Hynes has been responsible for the business and logistics side of Hamilton’s career for the past seven years. At the same time, Hynes also led ‘Project 44’, a management company founded after Hamilton ended its partnership with Simon Fuller.
During the professional partnership of some five years, Hamilton won four F1 world titles and numerous records were broken. That formula for success now comes to an end, the question is whether this also means anything for Hamilton’s F1 future.
According to Sportsmail, Marc Hynes was no longer involved in the contract negotiations between Hamilton and Mercedes in recent months. Last winter, the role of Hynes would have been discussed and it was decided to split up professionally.
Hynes and Hamilton have known each other since childhood, first only amicably and then professionally. Both parties reportedly broke up on good terms.
