Hamilton in Ferrari "Good for the sport"

"His want and desire to be in a Ferrari in his career? No. I think most world champions have either been there or have a desire to be there because they're a force of nature.

"It is the most successful team in Formula 1, and that can't be ignored.

"It's the hardest thing to do — for every human in the world — to move from where you're comfortable to where you're not.

"It challenges you and pushes you to the limit, and that's Lewis all over.

"I actually think it's good for the sport. It'll be good for Lewis because he'll learn from it, and he'll challenge himself."
