LEWIS HAMILTON is going for gold in this weekend’s Monaco GP – after sporting some new gnashers. But they are not permanent – with Hamilton later placing them in his pocket as he revealed they were just veneers. The 38-year-old is closing in on discussions over a new deal with Mercedes worth around £50million a year. Hamilton, who has landed in trouble with the FIA for his nose piercings in the past, is likely to escape another ticking off as the rules do not account for dentistry. Earlier this week, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff reaffirmed his desire to tie seven-time world champion down to a new long-term deal. Hamilton, who sits fourth in the drivers’ standings, has insisted he will not retire until he secures a record-breaking eighth championship. In response, Wolff said: “These rumours come up every two years when we have to sign a new contract. “It’s just uncomfortable that two friends, two blood brothers who have been through thick and thin for ten years, suddenly have to discuss money. “I’m firmly convinced that we’ll find each other, there’s not a millimetre of doubt for me. “I can’t imagine anything else. If we give Lewis a competitive car, he will win for a long time. Look at Tom Brady and what he was still capable of in his 40s.” Man Utd in FA Cup double blow as Antony stretchered off in tears & Shaw subbed too ©News Group Newspapers Limited in England No. 679215 Registered office: 1 London Bridge Street, London, SE1 9GF. “The Sun”, “Sun”, “Sun Online” are registered trademarks or trade names of News Group Newspapers Limited.
