Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff is convinced that despite the rumors of a recent Ferrari move that Mercedes has witnessed, Mercedes remains the first choice for Lewis Hamilton.
According to Gazzette dello Sport, Hamilton is expected to meet with Elkann twice during the off-season 2019 to discuss the possibility of a British switch to Ferrari during the off-season
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff reveals that Hamilton would not mind talking to Ferrari, since he understands that the seat in the red car is tempting for all racers. Nevertheless, Wolff is convinced that Mercedes remains the first choice of six-time world champion.
“In my opinion, the chances of Lewis staying with Mercedes 75 are percentages, but of course, the rest 2019 percentages happen a lot more. Our goal is to continue with Lewis, but we are aware that Ferrari is a tempting option for any racer. Lewis and I have made a remarkable story in recent years and I wish to continue our cooperation in the future, but System 1 is very unpredictable. “
