Former Ferrari boss doesn't think Hamilton will ever wear red

Former Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali doesn't expect Lewis Hamilton to make a move to the Italian team at any time in his career. The Brit's contract at Mercedes expires after the next season, but a report suggests the six-time champ will sign a two-year contract extension. 

Business as usual

Hamilton demonstrated how keen he was to race in 2021 after the rules and regulations were announced. It seems as if the 35-year-old isn't planning on slowing down anytime soon as he comes up against new rivals in Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc

The later of those two young drivers signed a mega-contract extension which will see him wear red until at least 2024. Former team boss Stefano Domenicali says this is the reason why Ferrari won't sign someone like Hamilton.

"I think it's normal to talk about this potential move of Hamilton to Ferrari. But I have the impression that Ferrari is concentrating everything on Charles Leclerc. So I don't think they will sign a top driver like Lewis. The team is setting a clear direction with a focus on a young, talented driver," he told Sky Italia.
