Eddie Jordan: “It would be the right time for Lewis Hamilton to go to Ferrari”

Eddie Jordan believes that 2021 would be the perfect time for Lewis Hamilton to join Ferrari. The six-time world champion has proven himself at the team and by going on to have success with Ferrari at the end of his career, there would be no denying his legacy. 

“It would be the right time for Lewis to go to Ferrari [in 2021],” Jordan said to TopGear.com. “He’s coming to the end of his career, but he still wants to win his seven or more titles.

“But the real belief that I think Lewis will go to Ferrari in 2021 is that Toto Wolff’s contract expires at the end of next year. He knows Mercedes’ long-term future in Formula 1 is not a certainty. Indeed, Lewis has mentioned Toto’s contract on more than one occasion, which is unusual for an F1 driver to do.

“Lewis would only go to Ferrari if someone could protect him against any possibility that Charles Leclerc could usurp him. So Ferrari would bring Toto along too.”

The rumors of Hamilton going to Ferrari have been relentless and many would rather just know what is going to happen in 2021 rather than having to wait another nine months for any news. It will be interesting to see what will happen.
