A representative of Lewis Hamilton contacted Red Bull about him partnering Max Verstappen at the world championship-winning team before he signed a £100million deal to remain at Mercedes, and he also held talks with Ferrari. The explosive claims come in an exclusive interview with Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, blowing a hole in Hamilton’s insistence that Mercedes was the only place where he wanted to see out his career. The revelations reinforce Mail Sport’s story in May that Hamilton and Ferrari had dialogue about doing a deal – explicitly denied by the driver and the Scuderia’s team principal Fred Vasseur at the time, but proven correct now. After protracted negotiations, 38-year-old Hamilton signed up until the end of 2025.
