In a move that would shock the F1 world, reports emerged on Thursday morning suggest Hamilton could make the incredible switch to Maranello.
Hamilton seemed to quell rumours of a move to the Scuderia by extending his contract with Mercedes last year, seemingly solidifying his allegiance to the Silver Arrows until the end of the 2025 season.
According to Sky Sports, the move is now all but confirmed, after a meeting with the Mercedes top brass earlier today, where staff were called into the team's Brackley HQ and told of the shocking news of Hamilton's departure.
Hamilton previously denied he held talks with Ferrari
While Hamilton has a good relationship with Fred Vasseur, the world champion previously denied any rumours suggesting that he actually received an offer to join the Prancing Horse.
Meanwhile, Vasseur said that talking to Hamilton is actually nothing new, saying:
"I'm talking with Lewis each week or each month for 20 years, so I can't say that I didn’t speak with Lewis at one stage, as we are always in contact.
"It's true because half of the grid drove for me in the past, and in Baku, I had a discussion with Lewis in the paddock, and it started to go everywhere, but if he signed a contract with me each time that we spoke in the past, it would cost me a fortune!"
