The Italian is a well known name in F1, mostly memorably being the Sporting Director of Ferrari during their most dominating years.
Long-term F1 fans will remember he played a huge role at Ferrari, alongside Michael Schumacher, which saw six consecutive constructors’ championships between 1999 and 2004, and Schumacher’s run of five drivers’ titles between 2000 and 2004. He remained there until early 2014
And recently, Domenicali hasn’t been shy in expressing his admiration for Hamilton, and only last month praised the Brit for his contribution to the sport.
“Lewis is an incredible driver, an incredible man, an incredible athlete, and he has given to Formula 1 a different dimension that is over the sport, I would say,” said Domenicali.
