If currently Lewis Hamilton has still not officially signed a contract with Mercedes, there is little doubt that the seven-time world champion will continue the adventure with the German team in 2021.
During the year 2020, rumors had reported a possible rapprochement between the Briton and the Ferrari team, without this materializing.
But Ferrari does not regret not being able to attract Lewis Hamilton to its team, as Mattia Binotto, director of Italian training, specifies in the columns of Skysports : “I don’t think there will be any regrets because in the end we made some decisions and we did it believing they were good decisions. “
“Today we have a fantastic driver like Charles [Leclerc], in which Ferrari has invested a lot. “
For the Swiss sports director, there is no doubt that Charles Leclerc is one of the best and can therefore fight with Lewis Hamilton: “I think he has a lot of talent. If he has the right car I’m pretty sure he can challenge Lewis Hamilton. “
The duo that Ferrari has formed with the Monegasque and Carlos Sainz for this 2021 season fully satisfy the team: “We made our choices and I think that with Carlos, we are very strong. I don’t think we’ll have to regret anything. ” Binotto specifies.
“We are going to have a very young driver duo, the youngest duo Ferrari has known since 1968 [ndlr : avec Jacky Ickx et Chris Amon], but these two drivers, Charles and Carlos, are very strong, very talented and even though they are young, they have a good experience of Formula 1. ” concludes the Swiss manager.
