Remark of the day

With each Lewis Hamilton and Frederic Vasseur each dismissing stories that they have been discussing a possible Hamilton transfer to Ferrari, @david-br is dissatisfied that the hyperlink up doesn’t seem like on the playing cards…

Sigh. Sounds prefer it received’t occur, although why Lewis would signal earlier than seeing how the following, say, third and even half of a season pans out with the makes an attempt to revamp the automotive, I don’t know. A disgrace if he doesn’t go away as I feel that is the final window for Hamilton to make this transfer, or any transfer to a different front-running workforce, whereas nonetheless at a peak. Presuming a multi-year contract with Mercedes. A straight swap of Leclerc and Hamilton would have been supreme and engaging.
