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."
