Lewis Hamilton addresses rumours of Ferrari switch

    Ferrari reportedly offered Hamilton a huge contract to drive for the Italian team


    Lewis Hamilton has shot down rumours of a move to Ferrari, branding some journalists bored after the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna GP. 

    It had been reported that Hamilton was offered around £40 million ($49m) to join Ferrari, having been in contact with the company’s Executive Chairman John Elkann, with his Mercedes contract coming to an end in 2024. 

    “Naturally, when you’re in contract negotiations, there’s always going to be speculation,” Hamilton told select members of the media, including “And I think ultimately, that unless you hear from me, then that’s what it is.

    “I think maybe with the weekend, last weekend, with the race being cancelled, maybe they [journalists] just got bored.

    “My team is working closely behind the scenes with Toto [Wolff]. We’re almost at the end of having a contract ready. So having a team focus on that, so I can just do my job. 

    “That’s much better position than I was in before, because I remember used to do my negotiations on my own, and it was very stressful. So I don’t have to do that anymore.”
