A fairytale end at Ferrari, taking a Fernando Alonso style sabbatical or staying at lagging Mercedes… what are Lewis Hamilton’s F1 options in his pursuit of a record eighth world title after glum start to the season?

Lewis Hamilton at one point in his career had one hand on an eighth world championship, but following the opening race of the season in Bahrain the prospect of becoming the greatest driver of all time looks further away than it ever has. For Leclerc to leave, it would likely be a swap that would see him go to Mercedes. However, for Hamilton the chance to drive for an historic team like Ferrari in what could be his final opportunity must at least have him thinking for more than one moment. The most likely option and probably also the most sensible one for Hamilton. Mercedes though are keen to retain Hamilton and are confident the Brit will stay for at least another year who has is also keen to stay at the team for at least another year. But their woes are even worse than Mercedes and it’s incredibly unlikely Hamilton has much interest in what is right now looking like a team scrapping for minor points.
