Hamilton’s shock departure for Ferrari next season continues to rock F1. The full impact on the driver market has yet to be felt, with a seat at one of F1’s most successful teams now available.

Carlos Sainz is an option for the seat following his strong start to the season. His stock continues to rise following his win at the Australian Grand Prix.

Hamilton has now revealed who he believes is the best to take over his seat at Mercedes. Following Sebastian Vettel’s hint that an F1 return may be on the cards, Hamilton has thrown his support behind Vettel.

Vettel the right fit for Mercedes?

Speaking to formula1.com, Hamilton confirmed he believes Vettel may return: “You’re always going to miss it. It’s the greatest sport in the world and it’s the greatest experience in the world. It’s the most amazing feeling to be working with a group of people towards winning something, achieving something.”

“Probably there’s nothing that’s going to ever feel the same. I’ve not asked any of the drivers what they’re missing, but I can just imagine.”
