In a move that has sent shockwaves through the Formula 1 world, Frederic Vasseur, Ferrari’s team principal, has hailed the upcoming 2025 addition of Lewis Hamilton to the squad as a monumental opportunity. The 39-year-old Hamilton is set to team up with Charles Leclerc, marking a significant change in the racing team’s dynamic.

The announcement, made public less than a fortnight ago, has been described by Vasseur as a strategic decision to avoid any disruptions during the 2024 season. He expressed enthusiasm about the challenges and growth opportunities Hamilton’s arrival would present to the team.

At the unveiling of Ferrari’s 2024 car, Vasseur, who has a history with Hamilton dating back to the latter’s GP2 championship win in 2006, discussed the natural progression of their relationship over the years that facilitated this groundbreaking transfer.

Leclerc, who was kept in the loop about the negotiations with Hamilton prior to renewing his own contract with Ferrari, emphasized the transparency and respect within the team, especially concerning his current teammate Carlos Sainz. He acknowledged Hamilton’s unparalleled success and experience as valuable additions to the team.

The rapport between Leclerc and Hamilton, which has been positive for years, is expected to foster a fruitful partnership as they prepare for their collaboration in 2025. Leclerc highlighted the learning potential from having Hamilton, a seven-time world champion, as a teammate.
