Hamilton delays contract talks; SPORT SHORTS FORMULA ONE.

LEWIS HAMILTON is ready to play hardball with Ron Dennis when it comes to future contract negotiations, but still expects to come out smiling.

Hamilton has made it clear he will likely wait until towards the end of the year before sitting down with his management team and McLaren group chairman Dennis to begin talks about extending his stay with the Woking-based marque.

The 27-year-old's sole focus at present is on what he now sees as the "toughest championship" he has been involved in since he came into the sport in 2007.

However, former team boss Dennis threw a spanner in the works in Canada recently when asked as to the prospect of Hamilton staying with the team.

At the time Dennis made clear Hamilton is "very highly paid", and added: "He is on the end of a contract which was signed at a time when the economy was somewhat different. Now there has to be a balance."
