Lewis Hamilton has admitted that moving to Ferrari is a ‘goal to be accomplished.’
Before his future at Mercedes was jeopardized, LEWIS HAMILTON admitted that driving for Ferrari is a “dream for anyone” and a “goal to be achieved.”
New FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem has dismissed talk of Lewis Hamilton retiring from Formula One as “just rumours.”
Last month, Hamilton was denied the world championship after Max Verstappen passed him in dramatic fashion on the final lap.
However, the race result was contentious, as race director Michael Masi allowed some lapped cars to overtake the safety car on the final lap, giving Verstappen a free run on fresher tyres than his title rival.
Over team radio, Hamilton was heard saying that the race had been “manipulated.”
Since then, speculation has been rife as to whether Hamilton will retire from the sport, with Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff refusing to confirm the British driver’s return for next season last month.
Hamilton has been a key figure for Mercedes over the last seven years, but it appears that he has also fantasized about driving for Ferrari.
Seven-time champion Sebastian Vettel admitted in September that driving for Ferrari is a “dream for anyone” and a “goal to be achieved.”
“For many years, when I came to Monza, walking next to the fans…” he told Sky Sports Italia.
‘Come to Ferrari!’ I could hear them exclaim.
“This warmed my heart, but it’s incredible that I haven’t driven for Ferrari in so long.”
Because it is everyone’s dream, a goal to be achieved.”
“It has never really been possible and I will never quite know why,” Hamilton said of his inability to drive for the team.
“I wish them luck, and I intend to keep them from winning the world championship in the near future.”
“I’ve seen their drivers’ photos, and red is always red.”
At my house, I have a few Ferraris.
“I can drive those, but not the Ferrari F1,” says the driver.
Hamilton also discussed retirement, admitting that it is something that he considers from time to time.
“That thought occurs to me quite frequently,” he explained.
It’s as if it’s a wave.
“It comes and goes; there have been times in the last four or five years when I wasn’t sure if I still wanted to try, if I still wanted to sacrifice my personal life for training.”
“I enjoy other things as well.
