If there was any chance of Lewis Hamilton moving to Ferrari in the future, the Brit has destroyed it with his recent comments. The reigning Formula One (F1) champion has claimed that he is not interested in joining the Prancing Horses but he also believed he sure could help them improve the team. 

Hamilton is nearing to a sixth World Championship victory and that will put him just one title behind all-time record holder Michael Schumacher. If at all, Ferrari once again failed to challenge Mercedes for the title next year, Hamilton could have a great chance to level with the German legend. 

The end of next season will also see the end of Hamilton's current contract with Mercedes. But, the British racer is determined to carry on with Mercedes, the team he has been associated with since he was 13. 

“For many Ferrari is the last dream of a career. I do not like that. Since I was 13 years old, I have belonged to the Mercedes family. That will hardly change," Hamilton told Blick

There have been rumors that the 34-year-old racer could soon be leaving Mercedes in search of a new challenge. A lot of pundits have suggested Hamilton could follow the footsteps of legends such as Niki Lauda, Schumacher and Fernando Alonso and head to Ferrari next.

However, Hamilton has other ideas. When asked if he has thoughts to join Ferrari at the end of his current contract, the Brit immediately replied," Not really."

"Although I have no doubt that I could also change some things for the better there. But that is not my goal. It took six years to make Mercedes a winning team and keep it at the top. Now we have an atmosphere full of love, appreciation, admiration and respect. You do not just give that up," Hamilton added.

With nine victories from 16 races, Hamilton has 322 points and is well ahead in the drivers' title race. He is 73 points clear of the second-placed racer and teammate Valtteri Bottas. Next in line are Ferrari's Charles Leclerc and Red Bull's Max Max Verstappen.
