Hamilton not planning Ferrari move
"When you’re in negotiations you always have to drop in the Ferrari name"
Lewis Hamilton has dismissed reports he might be considering a move to Ferrari.
At the weekend, we reported Toto Wolff’s comments that suggested Hamilton might be heading to Maranello, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel could be Mercedes-bound.
But after winning in Barcelona, Hamilton said he thinks Wolff was referring to his earlier contract negotiations with Mercedes.
"I think when you’re in negotiations you always have to drop in the Ferrari name," he said.
Hamilton admitted he is a "Ferrari fan", but he also said it is "difficult" to envisage leaving Mercedes, a brand he has been associated with since the age of 13.
"Do I plan on going elsewhere? I haven’t made any plans for my future," said the Briton. "At the moment I’m just enjoying driving with this team.
"It’s incredible what we’re achieving together, and I plan on working with this team to help it become the most successful team of all time. That’s my current goal and my sole focus."
