Hamilton to join Massa, Webber and Schumacher on transfer ‘merry-go-round’ contract
London : Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton is likely to switch from McLaren, as after two seasons of stagnation in the driver market, the transfer ‘merry-go-round’ is finally showing signs of spinning into action.
According to the Daily Mail, chief among the potential protagonists is Hamilton, whose contract at McLaren expires at the end of the current campaign.
However, Hamilton’s management company, Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment, are giving it plenty of thought, even if serious negotiations are unlikely to begin in earnest until after the British Grand Prix next month.
Hamilton is joined by Red Bull’s Mark Webber, Felipe Massa of Ferrari and Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher, who happen to be sailing the same boat as F1 star.
It is being predicted that Webber may move to Ferrari to replace Massa or Schumacher if the German goes back into retirement, freeing up a space at Mercedes.
