Lewis Hamilton says his move to Ferrari was never in the cards, because “when you’re with Mercedes, you’re with them for life”.

In a recent interview with Sky Italia Lewis Hamilton said he wasn’t sure why he had never driven for Ferrari, and earlier this week former Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali said there were some discussion with the Briton.

However, ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton said it was never a realistic option for him.

“Not really,” Lewis said.

“I have no reason to think about it. Each year or each end of a term, you have to do your due diligence and see what options you have.

“But I’m really proud of where I am and what we’ve achieved with Mercedes. The idea of going to Ferrari was very short-lived.

“When you’re with Mercedes, you’re with them for life. It’s not something you see with any other team or any other brand.

“It’s something I’m very proud of. We’ve achieved more than anybody and that’s down to great loyalty and teamwork.

“I don’t take that for granted,” concluded Hamilton.
