As rumor of Lewis Hamilton's arrival at Ferrari has swelled in recent weeks, Flavio Briatore recommends Scuderia not to bet on the Briton.
At the end of next season, many drivers will be on the market and will have their future discussed, while in 2021, radical changes in regulations are expected. Lewis Hamilton is no exception to the rule since his lease with Mercedes ends in 2020. And the name of the six-time World Champion has notably circulated on the side of Ferrari to team up with Charles Leclerc and replace Sebastian Vettel whose contract also ends in 2020. But for Flavio Briatore, it’s not such a good idea.
"So I don't see the point of looking for Hamilton"
" In recent times, we have often heard of a possible arrival of Hamilton in Maranello in 2021. But Ferrari already has Leclerc under contract, so I don't see the point in having them go and get Hamilton, especially since Charles costs them less! The mistake not to make is to do what Renault did last year. Renault dropped a crazy money by going to Ricciardo at Red Bull when it would have been better for them if they had invested this money in the development of their car! Honestly, Ferrari still has a job to do to get a car half a tenth of the Mercedes. Then the pilot will make the difference ", Says the former leader of Renault in comments reported by f1i.
