EXCLUSIVE: Ferrari are set to offer Lewis Hamilton £40MILLION deal to race in red next season and the chance to eclipse hero Michael Schumacher – with chief John Elkann already in close contact with the British driver

Ferrari are set to offer Lewis Hamilton the chance to win his dream eighth world championship in their famous red car. Mail Sport understands the Italian team are willing to break the bank to land the superstar in a £40million deal, and offer him the opportunity to eclipse the Scuderia’s greatest hero, Michael Schumacher, who won five of his seven titles with them. In this scenario, Hamilton drives alongside Spaniard Sainz at Ferrari, while Leclerc is paired with George Russell at Mercedes. Mail Sport understands that money will not be a factor in Hamilton’s determination, in that both Mercedes and Ferrari are willing to grant him equally gargantuan sums, pretty much matching his current salary of some £40m, or more if required. The Hamilton family have long harboured a nagging ambition to see Lewis drive for Ferrari one day. Hamilton would bring stardust to Ferrari, wounded by not having won a drivers’ title since 2007.
