Lewis Hamilton's shocking move: F1 legend to join Ferrari in 2025

Posted : 02 February 2024

In a seismic shift within the Formula One landscape, Lewis Hamilton, the seven-times world champion and the most successful driver in the sport's history, is set to join Ferrari from 2025. This unexpected move follows Hamilton's activation of a release option in his Mercedes contract signed in August. Ferrari officially confirmed the news in a concise statement, heralding Hamilton's arrival on a multi-year contract.


Expressing sentiments in a statement released by Mercedes, Hamilton acknowledged his 11 remarkable years with the team, emphasizing the integral role Mercedes played in his life since the age of 13. The decision to part ways, he stated, was one of the most challenging he has faced, but he believes the timing is right for a new challenge. Hamilton is resolute in delivering his best performance in the upcoming season with Mercedes, aiming to conclude his tenure with the Silver Arrows on a high note.


As the 39-year-old British racing icon prepares to depart Mercedes, he is poised to fill the seat left by Spanish driver Carlos Sainz at Ferrari, joining forces with Charles Leclerc. This move marks a significant change for Ferrari, providing them with a world champion driver for the first time since Sebastian Vettel's departure in 2020.


Hamilton's switch to Ferrari, reminiscent of his departure from McLaren to the then-unproven Mercedes in 2012, adds an unexpected chapter to his illustrious career and injects new dynamics into the competitive Formula One landscape. Ferrari, the oldest and most successful team in the sport, aims to leverage Hamilton's prowess to reclaim their position at the pinnacle, mirroring the golden era with Michael Schumacher from 1996 to 2006.
