Leclerc Dismisses Rumors of Mercedes Move, Committed to Ferrari Project

As the future of seven-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton remains uncertain, speculation surrounding potential replacements for the Mercedes driver has been rife. One name that has consistently been mentioned is that of Charles Leclerc, currently driving for Ferrari.

However, in a recent statement, the Monegasque driver has dismissed any rumors of a move to Mercedes, saying: "No, not yet, not for the moment. For now, I am fully focused on the project I am in today, which is Ferrari. I fully trust and I am confident for the future, then we will see, but I am fully confident for the project of Ferrari."

Committed to Ferrari Dream

Leclerc, whose contract with Ferrari expires at the end of the next season, expressed his love and commitment to the team, saying: "I'm fully committed to Ferrari and I love Ferrari.

It has always been a dream for me to be in this team, and my main priority is to win a world championship with this team, so it's not something in my mind." Ferrari team boss, Frederic Vasseur, also expressed confidence in the current driving line-up, saying: "I’m sure we have a good combination and, the question about Charles, it’s a question as usual.

But I think Charles said also that he wants to be world champion with Ferrari, and I want to be world champion with Charles or with Carlos [Sainz]. We are very happy with the drivers... and they are doing a good job. So far so good."

Hamilton Unfazed by Rumors

As for Hamilton himself, when asked about the rumors surrounding Leclerc and a potential move to Mercedes, he said: “No, not really.

I think maybe some of the drivers have relationships with different [team] bosses and stuff. I like where I am, I love my team, and I’m grateful for the journey we’ve been on and what we’re working on moving forwards.

So it doesn’t have any impact, no”. Despite the speculation surrounding his future, Leclerc remains fully committed to Ferrari and his goal of winning a world championship with the team. Meanwhile, Hamilton remains unfazed by the rumors and is focused on his own journey with Mercedes.
