If Lewis Hamilton wins his seventh world title in 2020 and thereby matches Michael Schumacher’s record, he will leave the familiar Mercedes litter and try his luck at Ferrari, is the rumor. He could even take Toto Wolff with him in a double transfer.
In conversation with Motorsport Total Helmut Marko is asked if those rumors were not fueled by Mercedes to cause unrest at Ferrari, but the Austrian suspects that there is more to it: « I don’t think that such a game is being played. I think it is indeed about contract discussions and if Hamilton comes to the table with the highest Ferrari boss, then that can only be about the financial picture (read: salary). »
Just as the Lewis Hamilton contract with Mercedes expires at the end of 2020, the contracts of four other drivers with the top teams expire. Only Charles Leclerc is certain of a seat in 2021. He recently extended his contract with Ferrari until 2025.
