Could Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton swap places?

Rumour has it that Sebastian Vettel is no longer at ease at Ferrari but where could the German go if he were to leave the Scuderia? Mercedes haven't had a German driver in their ranks since Nico Rosberg but is Vettel a realistic option?

Mercedes boss, Toto Wolff has refused to rule out a move insisting: "Everything is still open after 2020". Mercedes currently has Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas as their lineup, but with Bottas' place under the spotlight and Hamilton now 34, Vettel could have a shot after Wolff heaped the praise on the German.

"You are not just a four-time world champion because of a bit of luck. Sebastian is still the most important pawn at Ferrari, but you don't know what he will do next. Everything is still open after 2020," Wolff told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Despite Hamilton chasing Michael Schumacher's record of seven World Championship, Wolff acknowledges the lure of Ferrari but trusts Hamilton is focused at the Silver Arrows.

"Hamilton is at ease with us and there is trust from both sides, but we also recognize the myth that Ferrari is. Many riders dream of driving there."
