Speculation linking Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari is nothing new.
In fact, it was rife last season, which led to George Russell being grilled on the subject by Channel 4 host Steve Jones.
“What do you think about Lewis going to Ferrari?” he asked jokingly.
Russell delivered an emphatic response, saying: “That won’t happen. You read it in The Daily Mail, was it? I don’t know what would happen before that, but… who knows.”
The Mercedes man’s confidence has since come back to bite him, with Russell set to be racing alongside a new team-mate in 2025.
