25: Mclaren Approached Lewis Hamilton Too?

25: Mclaren Approached Lewis Hamilton Too?



Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1’s reigning World Champion and super star, recently admitted that a ‘rival’ team attempted to sign him for 2019 and 2020\. In this week’s episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we speculate if this ‘rival’ was Mclaren indeed. Given their love for PR and attempts at signing high-profile drivers, should we be surprised?

Also in this episode, we discuss the ONLY pitfall of the double and triple headers in Formula 1, the driver sillier season which could see Esteban Ocon at Renault while Lance Stroll’s bankers and Sergio Perez’s sponsors fight for a seat at Force India. Should the Mexican driver race for the all-American Haas F1 Team, what could Donald Trump’s reaction be? And of course, we talk about the _Neymar_ and Jesus Christ of Formula 1\. Basically, there’s a lot of banter, humour and stories from the world of Formula 1\. Tune in!
