Even if you prefer to deal with cold, hard facts, a bit of gossip can be a lot of fun. In Formula 1, the right bit of gossip can catch like wildfire, which is what happened in the Abu Dhabi paddock ahead of the season finale, when 'Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari' speculation was reignited.
Driver market chat, especially that involving the names Hamilton and Ferrari, is about as evocative as F1 rumour gets. This particular scenario would have an immensely powerful impact on the F1 landscape: the world's best driver joining the world's best-known team, and leaving F1's best team to do it.
The picture almost paints itself. Hamilton, the seven-time world champion fresh from matching Michael Schumacher for titles, makes a blockbuster move to end his career in red. He's set on taking Schumacher's records in the team that made the German a legend, ending Ferrari's painful title drought in the process.
