Ferrari is reportedly offering 46 million euros to Hamilton

THE Daily Mail reports that Ferrari is reportedly preparing a £40m (€46m) bid to lure Lewis Hamilton to drive for them in 2024.

The report adds that talks are progressing at the highest level at Ferrari, with company chairman John Elkann already in “close contact” with Hamilton.

In fact, the British publication goes on to say that Ferrari ideally wants Hamilton to work with Charles Leclerc, which means releasing Carlos Sainz a year earlier than the end of his contract with the Scuderia. Alternatively, Ferrari would be willing to let Leclerc go and take Hamilton’s place at Mercedes.

Charles Leclerc’s contract with Ferrari ends at the end of 2024, while Hamilton’s contract with Mercedes expires at the end of the current season. The 38-year-old has yet to sign a new contract with Mercedes, despite both sides repeatedly saying the new deal is just a formality.

Earlier this month, Hamilton ruled out a move to Ferrari in a statement from Miami, saying:

I’d be lying if I said I never thought about finishing my career somewhere else. I started at McLaren, I’d like to think I’ll always be part of the McLaren family, I started there when I was 13 years old, so I thought what it would be like to be at McLaren one day.

I thought and watched the Ferrari drivers on the screens at the track and of course you wonder what it would be like to be in red. But then I went to my team, Mercedes, and this is my home. I am happy where I am. I haven’t signed a new contract yet, but we’re working on it.
