Lewis Hamilton’s switch to Ferrari by 2025 gains momentum, heralded by an internal Mercedes F1 announcement and media reports.
Mercedes F1 informs employees of Hamilton’s departure, Sky Sports confirms an imminent official announcement.
As anticipated since late morning, Lewis Hamilton’s move to Ferrari for the 2025 season is becoming imminent and is rapidly approaching. This time, it was Mercedes F1 that announced the news to its staff, before an official statement.
Sky Sports and their F1 correspondent, Rachel Brookes, confirmed the news from the Brackley factory, where Brookes has been awaiting the official announcement since this morning.
“We can confirm that Lewis Hamilton will move to Ferrari for the 2025 season,” she stated. “The staff were informed during a meeting that lasted about ten minutes; we saw the staff arrive, and ten to 15 minutes later, they were leaving. They came for this meeting and learned that Hamilton would leave Mercedes at the end of the 2024 season.”
Now, only an official confirmation and details are missing, but it appears Hamilton has signed for 2025 and 2026. This week, Scuderia announced a partnership with Peroni beer, which subtly included an old race car with the number 44 in its poster.
It was driven by Maurice Trintignant on one of the rare occasions (countable on one hand) when a Prancing Horse race car bore the number 44 in the World Championship.
Update: The official announcement of Lewis Hamilton’s departure from Mercedes F1 after the 2024 season is expected by the end of the day, presumably at 8 p.m. sharp and, following shortly or at the latest by tomorrow around 2 p.m. according to some insiders, just an hour before Haas F1’s livery presentation for 2024, Ferrari is expected to confirm his arrival for 2025.
