Hamilton to quit Mercedes for Ferrari and then quit?
- Updated: November 3, 2017
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is currently soaking in the pleasure of winning his fourth Formula One world championship, but speculation regarding his future is always doing the rounds.
The 32-year-old’s interest in music and fashion are well-documented, and a Sky Sports reporter believes that while Hamilton will still feature in the sport for some time, there is a huge potential that he will switch to Ferrari.
“He wasn’t so coy on his future when he was having a sly old dig at Nico Rosberg at the weekend,” Kravitz said on Sky Sports’ F1 report.
“I’m not so sure it’s about how many titles will satisfy him, it’s about seeing what he can do in the career that he’s got left.
“He’s 32 so he’s got arguably another five or six years before leaving Formula 1 – I think he’ll be bored of it by his 40s.
“I think another two or three years with Mercedes, which will take him to over six years in one team, and then he’ll go and join Ferrari once Vettel goes off.
“He’ll finish his career at Ferrari and win a championship at Ferrari.”
Meanwhile, Hamilton has pointed out that Max Verstappen is the biggest threat that he has to accruing more titles, which can perhaps be seen as a bit of a dig against Vettel.
“I want to be better next year,” he said.
“The challenge is going to be even bigger from Ferrari and Red Bull next year.
“Formula 1 doesn’t sleep. It doesn’t stand still. There is always someone there waiting to take my position.
“I’ve got Max sitting there waiting to take it.
“I’ve got to raise the game another level in order to stay ahead of him and that motivates me.
“There’s my motivation already for next year.”
