Lewis Hamilton joined Mercedes in the year 2013 when every team wanted to sign it. This was mainly down to the project in the making at Mercedes and also because of the presence of Niki Lauda in the pits. The Austrian played a huge role in bringing in Lewis Hamilton when he was contemplating other choices and we can now safely say that decision went on to change the course of history at Mercedes.

The Mercedes legend has gone to win a grand total of 103 wins and also has 183 podiums to his name, making him the most successful driver in the history of F1 in terms of the number of wins. He’s still tied with Michael Schumacher at 7 driver world titles after losing the world title to Max Verstappen in controversial situations at the end of last season in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking of Michael Schumacher which inevitably brings up Ferrari, a story has been developing around the future of Lewis Hamilton with Ferrari. After the heart wrenching defeat last year, there were speculations about the return of the former world champion. Fortunately, for fan across the world, he decided to return to the sport that has given him so much and vice versa.

Now, after a difficult start to the season with Mercedes, there are rumors of him making a move to Ferrari. But the Mercedes legend watered down any rumors on being asked about a ‘Last Dance’ with Ferrari.

Lewis Hamilton said, “Do you see what is written here? Loyalty. “Of course it would have been nice to race for Ferrari during my career, but things happen for specific reasons. Mercedes is my family, I will always be a Mercedes driver.”

“I will add one thing, If I could sit with the fans over there, I would support Charles. I am a Ferrari fan.”

This substantiates the theory of Sebastian Vettel who once famously said that no matter which team you are from, you are a Ferrari fan. Lewis Hamilton being a Mercedes legend admits to that and that should be enough evidence.
