Lewis Hamilton's lucrative offer to sign for Ferrari

Max Verstappen is untouchable at Red Bull and he has a long-term contract, with things going very well for him. For that reason, there are no rumours about his future.

But, Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc are not doing so well. That's why speculation about the futures of both of them is a recurring theme in the press.

The Daily Mail has predicted a move that seems incredibly far fetched at this stage. They say that Ferrari are thinking about how to lure the former champion to their team and the plan consists of making him a mega-offer that the Stevenage-born driver cannot refuse.

Hamilton has not won a race for a long time (since the Saudi Arabian GP in 2021) and things are not going well for him this year either, as Mercedes have once again failed in the design of its car.

The W14 is not a car that can beat the Red Bulls. Even Fernando Alonso's AMR23 is currently superior.

Lewis Hamilton's dream of an eighth crown

Hamilton, in fourth place with 56 points, is out of contract with Mercedes this year.

At the age of 38, the English driver - who has 103 wins, 192 podiums and 103 pole positions - is running out of time to achieve that and eighth world championship that would put him one ahead of Michael Schumacher.

But, to do that, he needs a good car, which Mercedes are not providing right now.

Ferrari doesn't seem to be the solution either, but the Scuderia would reportedly be willing to offer him a contract of around 40 million pounds to swap Brackley for Maranello in 2024.

That would be the aim of president John Elkann, who is already said to be in close contact with the Hamilton to end a title drought that has lasted since 2007, the year Kimi Raikkonen gave Ferrari its 15th drivers' title.

The futures of Hamilton and Leclerc

It seems unlikely that Hamilton will move from Mercedes as they are the team with which he has risen to prominence.

He arrived in 2013 and, in their ranks, he was able to win six world championships.

What is clear is that something is brewing with Leclerc. The Monegasque has also sparked rumours with his "Mercedes haven't contacted me... yet" comments.
