Hamilton: I'm with my dream team

NEWS STORY
21/04/2020

On a day that Prince Harry and wife, the Duchess of Sussex, announce that they will no longer work with British tabloids, the most infamous of them all proves exactly why they are held in such low regard.

"Pubs Shut Till Xmas," proclaims the headline, which is splashed across a picture of a pint of beer that covers almost the entire front page.

In a small bubble, added almost as an afterthought, are the words "596 dead... see page 4", as the Rupert Murdoch owned 'newspaper' demonstrates its priorities in terms of the coronavirus.

Over the weekend, Lewis Hamilton hit out at the paper, following an article on Friday which suggested that his "dream" move to Ferrari had been scuppered by the fact that Sebastian Vettel is increasingly looking likely to remain with the Maranello outfit.

"First off, there is no dream of a dash to another team," declared the world champion in a now deleted post on Instagram at the weekend. "I am with my dream team."

"Second, there's not a thing in my way as I'm not trying to move," he added. "I'm with the people who have cared from day 1. We are the best team! @mercedesamgf1.”

Fact is, the whole Hamilton to Ferrari thing has been media-driven, and while the Briton did meet with Ferrari CEO, Louis Camilleri late last year, it was made clear that it was a social event and nothing more.

However, the media, never ones to allow the truth to spoil a good headline, opted to ignore Camilleri and continue speculating.

Last week, Vettel admitted that he hopes to remain with Ferrari, adding that a new contract might be agreed before the 2020 season finally gets going.

"A move to Ferrari is a career killer; why would he do that?

I do see him tagging along Wolf if he moves to AM works team. I think Hamilton would like to stay with a British team as much as possible. MercedesAMG is just German in name and check signing."

"Perhaps thinking about the possibility that MB may withdraw from F1 might put some light on the equation. The Toto investment which was widely reported on may also add some salt to the prospect."

"Well, Rupert Murdoch. Enough said. Understanding one's freedom to choose, I do not understand why people continue to work for such an individual or purchase any of his offerings.
As for Lewis, as annoying as he can be, it is difficult not to admire his skill and his (generally-speaking) good behaviour on track. I would like it if he stayed with MercedesAMG - it may put a better perspective on the performance of genuine future challengers; teams or drivers. Cheers"

"Why on earth would Lewis even consider a move to 'Team Cheat'?"
