Ferrari Reveals Mega Offer
According to Mail Sport sources, Ferrari is preparing a monumental offer of £40 million in a bid to entice Hamilton to join their ranks for the upcoming season. With Hamilton currently in the final year of his contract with Mercedes, there have been indications of ongoing discussions between the Briton and Ferrari's president, John Elkann.
While Mercedes has been facing challenges for the past two seasons, struggling to produce a championship-worthy car, Hamilton has consistently emphasized his commitment to the team's collective aspirations. However, despite his prolonged negotiations, the seven-time world champion has yet to sign a new contract.
Driven by the desire to surpass the legendary Michael Schumacher's record of eight titles, Hamilton remains resolute in his pursuit of further accolades. British media outlets have been rife with reports detailing Ferrari's efforts to formulate a contract offer worth a staggering $40 million, with the intention of replacing Hamilton's current team, Brackley, with the illustrious Maranello-based racing team.
It is believed that Elkann envisions pairing Hamilton with the talented Charles Leclerc, potentially leaving Carlos Sainz as an expendable asset. Speculations have even emerged suggesting Sainz could find a new home at Audi, should the German automaker enter Formula 1.
An alternative scenario being discussed is a potential team switch between Hamilton and Leclerc, with the Monegasque driver taking up the mantle at Mercedes. Nevertheless, Hamilton's current team is determined to go to great lengths in order to retain his services, recognizing the immense value he brings to the team both on and off the track.
Hamilton's Future Hangs in the Balance
