Lewis Hamilton in Ferrari and Charles Leclerc in Mercedes? Simon Lazenby said, with Hamilton out of contract and disappointed that Mercedes didn't follow their winter directions, and Leclerc seeking the comfort of chairman John Elkann after being stranded in Bahrain, there could be this sensational option.
The journalist explained: "If Mercedes were to remain at this level, why should we rule out Lewis Hamilton's move to Ferrari? He wants an eighth title and if Ferrari were the team closest to Red Bull he would think about it.
Not surprisingly he hasn't signed with the German team yet; he has a great relationship with Toto Wolff, but he wants to understand how the car will evolve in 2023." According to the journalist, the British told Mercedes that he had not followed his indications at a design level and the Monegasque feels he cannot accompany the weight of a very difficult revolution.
Audi fits into this scenario, ready to invest in the other Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz. Frederic Vasseur said: "At the presentation of the SF-23 both declared that they did not consider the renewal urgent, but the strategic agreements require advance; Raikkonen agreed with the Reds in 2005 and so did Hamilton himself in 2011 with Mercedes." Leo Turrini, Sky commentator: "Leclerc has a special relationship with president Elkann, but he has been waiting for a winning Ferrari since 2019.
What would you think if more heads fell in Maranello than after those of Binotto and Sanchez?" So, according Sky Sports F1 UK once again raises the rumor of a sensational swap at the wheel of Ferrari and Mercedes in the coming season.
In the next few hours sensational news and updates should arrive regarding this suggestive and incredible voice. According to the British colleague, the seven-times world champion is thinking of changing the air because he is dissatisfied with the results obtained by the Mercedes project in the last two years.
His contract with the German team will expire at the end of the season and therefore he would have no obstacle to moving to Ferrari. And so we come to Leclerc.
