Hamilton commits to 2021, would Ferrari interest him?

Hamilton commits to 2021, would Ferrari interest him?

Lewis Hamilton says he remains committed to Formula 1 into 2021 and beyond, but doubts he will be tempted into a move to Ferrari.

Hamilton has regularly been linked to the Scuderia for much of his F1 career, which has been backed by Mercedes since he was 13 years old.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff recently said that reports suggesting Hamilton might want to end his career in the red car had been overblown.

Having worked with the Silver Arrows at McLaren, before joining the works team in 2013 and going on to dominate F1, Hamilton wants to keep contributing to Mercedes even when he steps away from F1.

Hamilton said: "I don't particularly see myself going anywhere else.

"I love being here at Mercedes. I love being a part of the brand. I love being a part of the history.

"The idea of standing with Mercedes, I've always said it for a long time, I've been [with Mercedes] since I was 13 years old. So the idea of continuing on with them even beyond non-Formula 1, probably heavily involved within Daimler and beyond I think is quite attractive."

Although Hamilton is approaching what would ordinarily be the latter years of his career, Hamilton hopes to be a dominant force under the next regs as he has in the current ones.

He said: "I always love a challenge. This team has shown that they are better prepared and in the best position to be able to react to rule changes, so I know the team is approaching the challenge in an exciting way.

"But I think it's going to be an interesting time. I'm planning to be here so naturally at some point next year my mindset will be to switch into 2021 and wanting to be the pioneer in that era."
