F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has once again turned away the rumours of joining the Ferrari saying he is already happy with Mercedes.
Even though last year Hamilton spoke about the possibility of moving to Ferrari, he has now made it very clear that he is planning on signing another contract beyond 2020 with Mercedes, where he won five of his six titles.
On Monday the F1 world champion re-stated his devotion to the Silver Arrows when he was incensed by a story in The Sun.
The newspaper claimed that Hamilton’s dream to race for Ferrari was ‘dashed’ by Sebastian Vettel‘s decision to stay with Ferrari.
But on a social media post which is now deleted, Lewis Hamilton screenshotted the article and wrote: “First off, there is no dream of a dash to another team. I am with my dream team.”
“Second, there’s not a thing in my way as I’m not trying to move, I’m with the people who have cared from day 1. We are the best team! @mercedesamgf1.”
Both Hamilton and Vettel’s contracts will be expiring at the end of this season but due to coronavirus outbreak which led to the delay in the campaign, both of them are certain to stay with their teams for 2021.
Vettel, who is recently been linked with Himlton’s seat, told Sky Sports last week that he is already in talks about the extension of his contract with Ferrari and he is likely to sign another deal with them before the season commences.
He added: “Whatever the deal will be, it will be whatever I and the team are comfortable with, so in terms of duration I don’t know,
“The contract I’ve had in the past were all three-years deals. I know I’m one of the more experienced drivers in Formula 1 but I’m not the oldest.
“I don’t think there’s an age limit in this regard, so it will depend on what we feel comfortable with.”
