Ferrari has announced the signing of Lewis Hamilton for 2025. He comes to replace Carlos Sainz.

“Scuderia Ferrari is proud to announce that Lewis Hamilton will join the team in 2025, on a multi-year contract (multi-year contract),” read a statement from the team with the Prancing Horse logo, Friday (2/2/2024) early morning WIB.

Hamilton’s arrival from Mercedes also shifted Carlos Sainz’s position. Ferrari ensures that the 2024 season will be the end of its time together with Carlos Sainz.

“We still have one more season to give everything together with Carlos Sainz,” read Scuderia Ferrari’s tweet on the X account.

Can Lewis Hamilton in Ferrari beat Verstappen?

Charles Leclerc signed a new contract with Ferrari last week. Leclerc will also be Hamilton’s teammate at Ferrari starting next year.

Hamilton is a seven-time world champion and is the most successful driver in Formula 1 history with 103 wins and 104 pole positions. Michael Schumacher is the only other rider with seven world titles.

However, Ferrari’s decision to bring in Hamilton actually needs to be questioned. Hamilton has not won a race since December 2021.
