Former Renault boss Flavio Briatore said that he doubts whether Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton will ever join Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari, saying the two “cannot co-exist” in the same team.
Hamilton and Vettel were involved in a championship battle this season and while things got very heated at a point in terms of Ferrari realistically toppling Meredes’ recent reign, the Brit eventually triumphed with two races to spare.
Despite a massive capitulation during the fag-end of the season, Vettel was one of the first to congratulate Hamilton on his title success.
Many rumours have linked Hamilton with a Ferrari seat in the future and the man himself has spoken about the team being one of huge repute, adding that he can see himself feature for them before he calls time on his career.
Briatore, however, believes that things can never work out between the two, claiming that Fernando Alonso would be a better fit for Ferrari.
“I do not think so, he cannot co-exist with Vettel,” Briatore told Italian broadcaster Rai.
“Alonso is still the best guy. With him and Vettel, Ferrari would have 100 per cent won the Constructors’ World Championship.”
