PARIS (AP) Growing rumors of Lewis Hamilton's potential move to Ferrari are being fed by the fact that the defending Formula One champion has yet to sign a new contract with Mercedes.

Hamilton at Ferrari, with the British driver competing internally for top-driver status against four-time champion Sebastian Vettel, could rival the days when Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost were fighting - and feuding - for the title.

The prospects for enticing more interest in the sport are mouth-watering, as F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone well knows. For now, the sport is more in the spotlight for losing iconic races like this year's German Grand Prix, with fears over whether the Italian GP in Monza will continue beyond 2016.
