"I love being here at Mercedes. I love being a part of the brand. I love being a part of the history.
"The idea of standing with Mercedes, I've always said it for a long time, I've been [with Mercedes] since I was 13 years old. So the idea of continuing on with them even beyond non-Formula 1, probably heavily involved within Daimler and beyond I think is quite attractive."
Although Hamilton is approaching what would ordinarily be the latter years of his career, Hamilton hopes to be a dominant force under the next regs as he has in the current ones.
He said: "I always love a challenge. This team has shown that they are better prepared and in the best position to be able to react to rule changes, so I know the team is approaching the challenge in an exciting way.
"But I think it's going to be an interesting time. I'm planning to be here so naturally at some point next year my mindset will be to switch into 2021 and wanting to be the pioneer in that era."
