THE BRITISH LEWIS HAMILTON (MERCEDES), LEADER OF THE WORLD OF FORMULA 1, TALKED ABOUT HIS FUTURE IN THE PREVIEW OF THE GREAT PRIZE OF ITALY, COUNTRY WHERE THE AFFECTED PEOPLE “ASKED” HIM TO GO TO FERRARI AND DECLARED THAT IN 2021, WHEN HE ACTED CONTRACT, WILL STUDY “THE DIFFERENT OPTIONS”.
“I still have more than a year and a half of the contract. It’s strange because we signed the previous one recently, but in the coming months I will study the different options, ”said the five-time F1 world champion.
“I am fortunate to have many Italian fans. Maybe it’s because they like fashion and my clothes. 90 percent of the people here are Ferrari fans; and many fans ask me to go to Ferrari. It’s good because it gives me the feeling that more and more people are supporting me, ”he said.
Hamilton did not want to go into assessing this possibility and insisted on his career linked to Mercedes: “I don’t know if it’s something that has to tempt you (drive for Ferrari). When you are part of Mercedes, you are part of a family for your whole life. Like (English) Stirling Moss or (Argentine Juan Manuel) Fangio … you are part of their history and they take care of you forever. Loyalty is something very important to me. ”

The British, five times winner of the Italian Grand Prix, has the opportunity this weekend to beat Michael Schumacher, seven times F1 world champion – with whom he shares that record – as the driver with the most victories in Monza; although he assures that it is not something that he has in his head
“I had not thought of it; I don’t particularly care. No problem if it doesn’t happen. The race will be very hard. Last weekend Ferrari was extremely fast and we expect the same here. Time can play its role too. Sometimes we predict that we will be behind and then we are ahead. We’ll see it tomorrow. ”
Hamilton also spoke of the young Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), 21, who won his first victory last Sunday in Belgium: “I don’t think it’s harder to win again, especially with two races in a row. Especially in such similar circuits. You can achieve your second this weekend, but I will do my best to prevent it, ”he said.
