The world of Formula 1 was taken by surprise this week by the announcement of Lewis Hamilton’s transfer from Mercedes to Ferrari from the 2025 Formula 1 season. Revealing details indicate that the speed of the announcement may have had the significant influence of Carlos Sainz Sr., father of current Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz Jr., and key figure in the Spanish motorsport scene.

On Thursday morning, the news exploded with the news that Hamilton had signed a contract with Ferrari for 2025. The peculiarity of this announcement, where even employees had to rush to the factory in a hurry to be informed, may have its roots in Sainz Sr.’s connections with the Spanish press. His influence may have been the trigger for the quick dissemination of the news, as if the announcement was not made officially, the multi-time Rally champion could have caused the news to spread in the Spanish media.

The urgency is also linked to Sainz Jr.’s desire to clarify his future before the start of the 2024 season. Negotiations over his contract with Ferrari came to an abrupt halt with Hamilton’s entry into the equation. Therefore, the announcement regarding Hamilton made in advance could help Sainz to seek new horizons for next year.
