Would Hamilton really be a worthwhile F1 investment for Ferrari?

OPINION: The Lewis Hamilton to Ferrari rumours have once again surfaced as the seven-time world champion's current Mercedes deal comes up for renewal at the end of the year. Despite public statements to the contrary, could Hamilton ever truly be tempted away by Maranello - or is Ferrari's future best invested elsewhere?

The beautifully ornate Casino de Monte-Carlo might provide a timely and fitting backdrop for Lewis Hamilton this weekend. Amid recent reports that Ferrari is seriously courting his services, it appears as though the seven-time world champion has a £40 million gamble to consider. Should he stick loyally to Mercedes as he has always declared in public that he will, or bet it all on red and finally give in to the oft-mentioned intangible pull from Maranello?

Now, a cynic might say that these Hamilton-to-Ferrari rumours have arrived just in the nick of time to ensure there’s a juicy headline in lieu of the cancelled Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. But it does seem the speculation is better supported this time around compared to past whispers of Hamilton doing what his idol Ayrton Senna never realised by driving for the Prancing Horse.
