Rumors about Lewis Hamilton’s future in Formula 1 are intensifying more and more, especially in the English and Italian media. Now it was the newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport’s turn to join the discussion. According to the Italian sports newspaper, the agreement between Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari is now complete, raising the possibility of an immediate move to the Scuderia.
In this scenario, Hamilton could replace Carlos Sainz as early as 2024. However, Sainz has an ongoing contract with Ferrari that ends at the end of this year, while the seven-time champion also has a contract in place with Mercedes until the end of 2024, with an option of another year.
If this hypothesis is confirmed and Hamilton moves to the Italian team immediately, we could be facing a major seat change in Formula 1. In this case, Sainz would have to look for a new employer, while Mercedes would have to fill the vacant seat left by Hamilton .
Obviously this possibility requires a major contractual change on the part of both teams, as both drivers have contracts in force with their current teams. Now we just have to wait and see how events unfold.
