Lewis Hamilton Is Leaving Mercedes To Join Ferrari In 2025

BY Sean Loo

Lewis Hamilton will join Ferrari in 2025, replacing Carlos Sainz. What a shocking start to the season.

In a move that shook the very foundations of Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton is set to don the iconic scarlet of Ferrari when the 2025 season rolls around.

This switch marks the end of an era with Mercedes, a team that has been his racing home since 2013.

Charles Leclerc, Ferrari's shining star who recently penned a new contract, will join forces with Hamilton. This duo promises to be a powerhouse, combining Leclerc's youthful exuberance with Hamilton's seasoned expertise.

Hamilton's Legacy

Hamilton, with seven world titles to his name, shares this pinnacle of success with the great Michael Schumacher.

His journey with Mercedes has been one of the greatest we’ve come to see in Formula 1’s famed history, adorned with 82 victories.

However, the tide seemed to turn after the controversial 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with Hamilton struggling to maintain his winning streak amid evolving F1 dynamics.

The Ferrari Dream

The Hamilton-Ferrari connection isn't a new narrative. The rumblings have been there since his early McLaren days.

Hamilton, back during a candid moment with ESPN in 2023, admitted to being tantalised by the allure of the 'Prancing Horse'.

Yet, his loyalty to Mercedes, his "home," seemed unshakeable - until now.

Scuderia Shuffle

With Hamilton set to sport Ferrari red, the dynamic within Scuderia is sure to be shaken up. Leclerc, having been with Ferrari since 2019, will now have Hamilton as his third significant teammate, following Vettel and Sainz.

Leclerc, in a previous interaction, expressed admiration for Hamilton's prowess, acknowledging the immense learning opportunity such a partnership would offer.

Who Will Fill Hamilton's Shoes at Mercedes?

Mercedes faces a conundrum with Hamilton's departure. The spotlight automatically turns to George Russell, poised to ascend as the team's new front-runner.

Speculation is rife about potential replacements. Names like Mick Schumacher and Alex Albon are floating around as potential contenders to take up the mantle left by one of F1's greatest, but your guess is as good as ours for now.

Watch this space. The 2024 season is going to get interesting.
