Hamilton has no ambition to drive for Ferrari

The greatest team in Formula 1’s history — Scuderia Ferrari is not planning to recruit defending world champion Lewis Hamilton, who has no great ambition to do so.

Triple time world champion also admitted that he would be happy to end his career without ever racing for the Italian outfit.

“If you are a football player then playing for Real Madrid is the goal but I don’t know if it is the same in Formula 1 with Ferrari,” Hamilton told Sky Sports. “But never say never.

“Ferrari are a strong team and an established brand but I’m driving for Mercedes at the moment. We are a fantastic team, the best in the world and I signed a three-year deal.

“I’m happy here and if I finish my career without ever driving for Ferrari then I don’t think that will be a problem.”

Hamilton struggling in the opening three races in this season, team-mate Nico Rosberg has now collected a 36 point advantage over Hamilton. The Brit, yet to win since clinching his third world title in US Grand Prix last October.

“At the moment, Rosberg is faster than me,” he acknowledged. “But don’t forget I’ve also done well with two poles and nothing is over until it is over.

“In the last race Nico did a fantastic job and credit to him for that because he was very good, but we are only at the beginning so it doesn’t bother me.”
