L.Hamilton three years at Orica Scott. Bakker is a master negotiater.
Time will tell us whether that is the case or not. Given the current lack of a replacement primary sponsor, that 3rd year is contingent on Ryan being willing to bank-roll the team beyond 2019 which is when the bulk of the longer term contracts expire. Maybe an option on that 3rd year may prove to to have been a wiser choice if the sponsorship situation does not resolve itself.
Whilst Hamilton's early pro trajectory may follow that of Haig but it may also mirror that of Power. We'll know more in 12 months time and be far more informed this time 2019 as to whether Bakker pulled off a master-stroke .... or sold GE an age-group "comet" who flamed out by the time he hit pro ranks/merely someone without the real weapons to make a significant mark at the top level. Whilst one can hope for the former, the latter are very real scenarios that all too frequently play out with highly touted juniors.
