BINOTTO DOESN T REGRET THEIR FAILURE TO SIGN HAMILTON FOR 2021

Lewis Hamilton is arguably one of the best F1 drivers of all time, and it may seem only fitting that he races for the best team of all time too. However, this dream partnership has never translated into reality.

Ferrari doesn’t regret their failure to sign Lewis Hamilton for the 2021 season as they are confident Charles Leclerc can challenge the Formula One champion.

Hamilton has won six of his record-equalling seven world championships with Mercedes, although he has not yet committed to the Silver Arrows for the coming campaign.

Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto says he doesn’t regret Ferrari not signing Lewis Hamilton and adds he thinks Charles Leclerc can challenge the seven-time champion.

At the beginning of 2020 there were a lot of rumours about Lewis Hamilton’s possible jump to Ferrari. The talk died down a bit by mid-year, as all parties involved said this is not something they were seriously considering.

With a driver line-up of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz confirmed, and Lewis Hamilton likely to sign a contract extension with Mercedes, Mattia Binotto was asked if he thinks Ferrari will regret not signing the Briton while there still was a chance.

“I don’t think there will be regret because at the end when we took some decisions, we took them thinking they were the right decisions and today we have a fantastic driver like Charles where we invested a lot as Ferrari,” Binotto told Sky Sports.

“I think he’s got a lot of talent. If he’s got the right car, I’m pretty sure he can challenge Lewis Hamilton.

“We’ve made our choices, and I think together with Carlos we are very strong.

“I don’t think there will be any regret,” reiterated Binotto.
