After many success at Mercedes including winning the drivers’ title for the outfit six times between the years 2014 to 2020, Lewis is seeking a new challenge after two frustrating seasons with the Brackley-based outfit.
Hamilton hasn’t won a race since 2021 and the Mercedes car’s lack of performance recently may have convince him to jump to a different team to continue his winning form.
It will be fascinating if he can finally achieve his eighth championship to become the most successful Formula 1 driver in the history of the sport. To team up with Charles Leclerc is going to thrilling as both are fast and determine.
The upcoming Formula 1 season is expected to be Hamilton’s last with Mercedes. He joined the outfit in 2013 after starting his career at McLaren six years earlier. Having won the 2008 world title with McLaren, Hamilton’s move to Mercedes made him the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time with more than 100 pole positions, 103 Grand Prix victories and seven championships.
However, since the new technical regulations introduced in 2022 Lewis has yet to win a race in the past two seasons. The lack of competitiveness could be the factor in deciding a move to a different team.
As for Ferrari, the team haven’t achieved title success since Kimi Raikkonen last won the championship back in 2007 so for Lewis Hamilton to take the title for the Scuderia would be an incredible achievement.
In addition, Ferrari seemed to be the closest challenger to Red Bull with Carlos Sainz winning in last year’s Singapore Grand Prix the most recent triumph.
On the subject of Carlos Sainz, it will be sad to see the popular driver leave in 2025. It will be interesting where he would go to make way for Hamilton. Hopefully a competitive seat.
Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc as Ferrari teammates in 2025? Sounds incredible and I look forward to the on-track battles. Bring it on!
