Lewis Hamilton may be close to changing teams in Formula 1. According to the website “Motorsport”, Ferrari has advanced negotiations to sign the English driver in 2025, and the agreement should take place by the end of the week.
According to the publication, Hamilton has a contract with Mercedes until 2024, with an option to renew until 2025. If the agreement with Ferrari is confirmed, he would give up this option in order to sign with the Italian team.
As a result, at Ferrari, Hamilton will take over from Carlos Sainz. The Spaniard had been negotiating the renewal of his contract with the team since the end of 2023, but talks were recently interrupted.
On the other hand, Charles Leclerc has already had his new contract announced.
It’s worth remembering that seven-time world champion Hamilton has been at Mercedes since 2013, after starting his career in Formula 1 with McLaren.
