Briatore: Ferrari doesn't need Hamilton as it has Leclerc thumbnail

Former F1 Benetton and Renault team boss Flavio Briatore believes that with the possible arrival of Lewis Hamilton, Ferrari would just be wasting money, as Scuderia and Charles Leclerc already have a racer who can become world champion.

Rumors have been growing lately that Hamilton may end his long and rich career behind the wheel of a red car, and the British have twice met with Ferrari President John Elkann twice this season.

Flavio Briatore is convinced that Ferrari does not need Hamilton to win the coveted title.

“Hamilton at Ferrari? If he were to choose between Leclerc and Leclerc, he would choose Leclerc, which is an exceptional ability, but at the same time significantly cheaper. It would be better if Ferrari spent the money it would spend on Hamilton to invest in car development. Leclerc has proven that he can become a world champion with a good car. “
