Lewis Hamilton, who claimed his fifth world F1 title last month, has only one race left this season before taking a break for the winter
The F1 season concludes this Sunday in Dubai at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Lewis Hamilton, with much help from his teammate Valtteri Bottas, has already won the Drivers Championship as well as the Constructors Title for Mercedes.
There has been speculation that Hamilton may look to switch teams before the end of his career.
He posted a new image on Instagram wearing a corduroy outfit with a red shirt.
He captioned it with a red dot emoji, and one fan responded saying: “Ferrari Red always looks great ;).”
Another worried fan responded with: “I hope you are not suggesting that you are joining Ferrari or Sauber soon? Or are you suggesting the Mercedes livery next year is going to be black and silver?! Looks amazing Lewis!”
Hamilton has been linked with Ferrari in the past and was asked about a move in the summer.
He admitted he’d been approached by another team but refused to confirm who it was.
“In terms of other teams approaching [me], one did, but I didn’t give it any air,” Hamilton said.
Pushed on whether the team were Ferrari, he replied: “You can make whatever assumption you want.”
Hamilton has made no secret of his admiration for Ferrari, but he signed a new two-year deal with Mercedes earlier this year.
“It’s good to put pen to paper, announce it and then get on with business as usual,” he said at the time of the new £40m deal.
“I have been part of the Mercedes racing family for 20 years and I have never been happier inside a team than I am right now.
“We are on the same wavelength both on and off track – and I am looking forward to winning more in the future and shining even more light on the three-pointed star. I’m very confident that Mercedes is the right place to be over the coming years.”
While Toto Wolf is confident of keeping him with the team.
He said: “Mercedes has become Lewis’ home in Formula 1. I am very confident that we have some incredible chapters of our story together still to come.”
