There has been a lot of recent speculation about Lewis Hamilton potentially becoming the new Ferrari driver. However, it has been revealed that such rumors are false. Frederic Vasseur and Lewis Hamilton maintain constant contact, as confirmed by Vasseur in a media interview. The two have enjoyed a strong relationship for an extended period. Due to this connection, many have speculated about potential negotiations between Ferrari and the British driver.

"I'm talking with Lewis each week or each month for 20 years, so I can't say that I didn't speak with Lewis at one stage, as we are always in contact," Vasseur said, as quoted by crash.net!

However, Vasseur denied the existence of any agreement between the two parties

"It's true because half of the grid drove for me in the past, and in Baku, I had a discussion with Lewis in the paddock, and it started to go everywhere, but if he signed a contract with me each time that we spoke in the past, it would cost me a fortune!"

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz: Contract


Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will continue to be part of the Ferrari team next year. Vasseur confirmed that they are likely to sign a new contract before the race in Bahrain in March.

"It could be the target [that new deals are agreed with both] before race one," he concluded.

The Ferrari team enters the next season with equally big ambitions as before. Looking at the two drivers, it is clear that Ferrari has a perspective. Much more is expected from Leclerc and Sainz next season.  The leaders of this team hope that both of them will make an even bigger step forward in the coming seasons. This team certainly has the capacity for great things, but it will have to be confirmed on the F1 tracks.
