JONATHAN McEVOY: Should he stay or should he go? Lewis Hamilton needs to be sitting in a Championship-worthy car, which Ferrari are capable of supplying… but loyalty could yet see him stay put at Mercedes ahead of huge decision

That is a partnership that if it came to fruition would combine the world’s most famous driver with the world’s most famous team. But a hard-wired winner such as Hamilton is not given to sentimentality over tough career decisions. Ferrari are also the most successful competitors in Formula One history and very few drivers can resist the allure. Ferrari are perennial under-achievers, without a drivers’ or constructors’ title since 2008. Hamilton’s hero Ayrton Senna was down to go to Ferrari before his death in 1994. Moving to Ferrari would also offer the chance to win a world championship at a third team. Hamilton at least has an ally in John Elkann, Ferrari’s executive chairman, who controls the multi-industry dynasty of the Agnelli family.
