Lewis Hamilton denies possible move to Red Bull
It appears that Lewis Hamilton has no intention of leaving his current racing team, McLaren, for greener pastures...
A spokesman for the young British driver has been quick to refute reports that talks have been held between Hamilton and Red Bull boss Christian Horner, concerning a potential move to the Austrian team. The comments come allegations that the pair spoke about the matter for up to 15 minutes at the recent Canadian Grand Prix.
XIX Entertainment, who represent the 2008 world champion, said: "Neither Lewis nor his management team have had any discussions with regard to moving team,"
Despite the comments, some critics believe that their could be some truth behind the rumours due to the fact that Hamilton only has one year left to run on his current contract with McLaren.
Hamilton has not been enjoying a great season so far; he could not complete the last race in Canada, which saw his team mate at McLaren, Jenson Button, pick up his first race of the season.
Hamilton had a somewhat eventful Grand Prix, causing Red Bull's Mark Webber to enter a spin on the first lap, and later colliding with Button – a collision which led to his eventual retirement from the race.
The 26-year-old has since admitted that the collision was his fault, commenting “I think you make your own luck”.
"I feel very blessed to be here still in F1, fit, healthy and alive and still racing. There are many, many drivers that wish they could be in our position.” said the McLaren driver.
"Of course, you could always hope for things to be better, but good times do come to those who wait. So I'll just bide my time and hope that at some stage it will be mine."
Sky Bet, 888sport and BetFred offer 7/2 odds that Lewis Hamilton will win the 2011 European Grand Prix.
