Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has been spotted at Ferrari F1’s headquarters in Maranello.
Mercedes F1 driver Lewis Hamilton has reportedly been spotted at Ferrari’s Maranello headquarters.
Reports detailing the Briton’s visits have come from Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Autosprint.
La Gazzetta dello Sport say that Hamilton’s visit has nothing to do Scuderia Ferrari, rather to “enrich his substantial collection of Ferrari’s”.
Autosprint News said: “Hamilton’s visit could be a political manoeuvre by Lewis to make clear to Niki Lauda and Toto Wolff that the driver’s market is always open”.
La Gazzetta’s reasoning seems to be the more likely of the two, as Ferrari’s struggles continue into the 2014 season, whilst Mercedes have been the clear standouts and look to already have one hand on both the constructors and drivers championships.
Scuderia Ferrari have declined to comment on the issue.
