Lewis Hamilton would have given his sensational response to Ferrari!

The renewal of the contract of the British driver Lewis Hamilton with Mercedes is still being studied between the parties: the gap between supply and demand is still wide, but the Mercedes board, including its Ream Principal Toto Wolff, have full faith in the renewal of the 7 times world champion with the German team.

However, in recent weeks, many rumors have circulated about a sensational move from Hamilton to Ferrari. As reported by many Italian and international media from rather concrete and verified sources, there would have been a real offer from Ferrari.

John Elkann, owner of Ferrari, would have talked to Toto Wolff about this during the Monte Carlo Grand Prix. Leo Turrini, an Italian Formula 1 insider, would have confirmed to the Italian media that there would have been this offer.

He told: "I understand that, after being contacted personally by Elkann, Hamilton politely said no."

No Ferrari for Hamilton, despite the contract is about to expire

Lewis's contract expires at the end of the season, the renewal has been discussed for weeks or rather months but at the moment, despite the parties speaking optimistically, there is no agreement.

Hamilton and Mercedes are not fully in agreement on the new contract, both technically and economically, with the British superstar wanting reassurance about the car's competitiveness.Hamilton has never been in a real fight for the top positions and his Mercedes seems to have taken a step back from the past.

For the car, the only real battle was between the two drivers and at the moment Hamilton is ahead of the very young Russell in the standings. Toto Wolff, Team Principal of Mercedes, gave updates on the future of British 7-time world champion Lewis Hamilton during the latest episode of the BBC Desert Island Disc podcast.Wolff explained: "I'm doing everything I can to keep Hamilton.

I don't think there's much need to convince him and despite the difficulties of recent years he is a pillar for the resurrection of our team." Hamilton is waiting for answers, with the hope that Mercedes will soon be competitive on the track, also for the final victory.
