Hamilton backed to end career at Mercedes by Wolff despite Ferrari dream

Lewis Hamilton will end his career with Mercedes according to Team Principal Toto Wolff, who has insisted that there is no better place for the seven-time world champion.

Hamilton is going out to beat Michael Schumacher’s record of world championships that he levelled in 2020, but his future beyond 2021 is undecided.

While he has been linked with moves away from the sport, his love for Ferrari has been well documented with Schumacher’s heroics coming with the Italian manufacturer.

After Hamilton distanced himself from the rival F1 team back in November, Wolff has now now agreed and spoke about their future working together in the sport.

“I think this will be his last team,” Wolff told DPA news agency.

“There is no better place for him than at Mercedes and our wish is also that he continues with us.

“The symbiosis between us is good and we have celebrated so many successes together that from today’s perspective everything speaks in favour of continuing to race together.”

With Hamilton telling GQ in November: ”The Ferrari thing is not going to happen… I think.

"I've always been positive about Ferrari. I watched Michael Schumacher win there. I've always been a Ferrari fan. I remember one of the first cars I ever bought was a Ferrari. And I think it's a hugely iconic team and brand, particularly.

"I think the team has, in my period of time… There have been things I've seen that I don't necessarily feel mirror my values and my approach.
