For former driver Johnny Herbert, Lewis Hamilton at Ferrari would be a perfect match.
It’s a rumor that has been circulating in the paddock for several weeks now. Arrived in 2013 at Mercedes, with whom he won six world championship titles, Lewis Hamilton sees his lease with the German firm come to an end at the end of the season. And according to some rumors, the English driver could take the direction of Ferrari. An association that inspires the former driver, Johnny Herbert, who believes that the Scuderia has every interest in going all out to try to recruit the Briton.
“Ferrari must do a big job of ‘selling their project’ to Lewissaid Johnny Herbert, in remarks reported by Nextgen-auto.com. There is a mousehole to exploit. Lewis has not signed his extension yet and this allows him, if he is still motivated, to look elsewhere. And why wouldn’t he? Ferrari must be an option. He will not go to Red Bull, it will not happen. He won’t go to Aston Martin either. (…) Maybe he wants to hang on to see what direction Mercedes is going with its evolution and what they’re doing with the W14, then maybe set sail elsewhere if it’s still not good. »
“Hamilton and Leclerc at Ferrari would be a wonderful duo”
And to add: “Driving in a red car is what would make the most sense to him then. If that happened, then the one who would suffer would be Carlos Sainz because Charles Leclerc already has a ‘concrete’ contract. Hamilton and Leclerc at Ferrari would be a wonderful duo, to be honest. A youngster and an experienced battling it out in a Ferrari who hopefully, with all Lewis’ ability, manages to attract the right people to be able to produce Red Bull-level F1 as it is at the moment. » It’s Ferrari to play!
