As reported by the Daily Mail, Lewis Hamilton could leave Mercedes to sign a multi-million pound contract with Ferrari. According to reports from the English newspaper, in fact, the 7-time world champion would be among the most popular drivers of the Italian F1 team, and would be courted in an attempt to bring the Reds back to world success.
The Ferrari chairman John Elkann, according to the Daily Mail, would in fact have promised the place to the British in an attempt to convince him to return to success in F1. Also according to the Daily Mail, the English driver was offered a millionaire contract, of around 40 million pounds, to leave Mercedes and land in Maranello in Ferrari.
The Mail also said Charles Leclerc would be the driver replaced by Hamilton. But the possibility of a Leclerc-Hamilton couple is also not excluded, which would imply the exit of Sainz. It should be remembered that the current contract, signed in the summer of 2020, provides for a three-year engagement of around 40 million and maximum freedom for Hamilton in the commercial management of his image.
Lewis today is a living company with ramifications in fashion, lifestyle accessories and many other fields of the industry.
