Sir Lewis Hamilton shocked the F1 universe early in 2024. Fans presumed that Hamilton would never leave Mercedes. He might even become a brand ambassador of the German team. That’s what the fans thought. But life can be full of surprises and shocks. Nobody knows when one of them can hit them. Similarly, the seven-time champion shocked the F1 fans when he announced his switch to Ferrari. It was shocking for Toto Wolff and the rest of the followers of the German F1 team. As a result, Hamilton put an end to the 12 year long and golden collaboration between him and the Brackley team. There has never been a more successful team-driver partnership than Hamilton had with the Silver Arrows.

But for the last two years, Mercedes failed to provide the great Briton with the fastest car. Moreover, the seven-time champion remained winless for a couple of years on the trot. He will turn 40 next year. Perhaps all these thoughts influenced Hamilton to sign with the Italian team. Currently, fans are eager to see the beginning of the most successful team and the most decorated F1 racer’s collaboration. Only time will tell if Ferrari and Hamilton help each other with winning titles after a long time. But does this mean that Hamilton lost faith in Mercedes?
