An interesting day on the F1 scene: As early as this morning, there were rumors about Lewis Hamilton's departure to Ferrari. Many media reported such information, and Hamilton and Formula 1 fans still do not know if there is any truth in it.
Toto Wolff is competent to say whether this is really true. It seems far from it. "These rumours come up every two years when we have to sign a new contract," Wolff said, as quoted by crash.net "But none of this is true. We discuss normally, without any time pressure”.
Wolff is sure that the agreement will be reached soon and he cannot believe that money could be an obstacle to the friendship between him and Hamilton. "It's just uncomfortable that two friends, two blood brothers who have been through thick and thin for ten years, suddenly have to discuss money," he continued.
"I'm firmly convinced that we'll find each other, there's not a millimetre of doubt for me. I can't imagine anything else. If we give Lewis a competitive car, he will win for a long time. Look at Tom Brady and what he was still capable of in his 40s”.
Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes
After the race in Azerbaijan, Hamilton talked about his goals for the future. For now, he intends to stay at Mercedes. However, it is difficult to predict what the future holds, given that he thought he would stay at McLaren for a long time.
"I'd be lying if I said I'd never thought about ending my career anywhere else," Hamilton said. "I started at McLaren, I'd like to think I'll always be a part of the McLaren family, I started there when I was 13 years old, so I thought about what it would look like if I was at McLaren one day.
I thought about and watched the Ferrari drivers on the screens at the track and of course you wonder what it would be like to be in red... But then I go to my team, to Mercedes, and this is my home. I'm happy where I am. I haven't signed a contract yet, but we are working on one."
