Lewis Hamilton says it’s “never really been possible” for him to drive for Ferrari, and jokes that he’ll “just have to stop them from winning the world championship instead”.

There has been a lot of talk about the possibility of Lewis Hamilton driving for Ferrari over the last few years, but according to Lewis, the real opportunity never came.

“For years, whenever I come to Monza and see the fans, I hear them saying ‘Come to Ferrari!’,” Hamilton told Sky Italia.

“It warms my heart, but it’s pretty amazing that I’ve never driven for Ferrari after so many years. Because it’s a dream for everyone, a goal to be achieved.

“It’s never really been possible and I will never quite know exactly why.”

Lewis then joked that, not being able to drive for the Red Team, he will instead have to stop them from winning the championship.

“I wish them the best and in the near future I will just have to stop them from winning the world championship instead.

“I have a couple of Ferraris at home that I can drive, but not the F1 Ferrari.”

The Briton was also asked if he fears that the younger generation of drivers will be able to better adapt to new completely different 2022 cars.

“Honestly, I’m not afraid of that. But that’s part of the reason why I want to stay in F1, because it will really be an opportunity to show my skills.

“I believe my experience can be important to the team but also the development of George, who is already very fast but he will surely learn from me, because I have been in F1 for the longest time.

“And I will also be able to learn from him. I have no qualms about learning from someone younger. I have no fear, I just want to win.

“Yes, I am much older and they are not afraid of anything. I like to watch them drive. I hope I am still able to deserve my place here.

“To be able to respond to them in the most effective way possible,” concluded the seven-time champion.
