Lewis Hamilton’s days at Mercedes may be soon coming to an end.

Multiple reports out of Europe today say that the seven-time F1 champion Hamilton is expecting to announce that he’s leaving Mercedes after the 2024 season and will be joining Ferrari.

Hamilton, 39, is under contract with Mercedes for 2024 and 2025. Apparently the 2025 deal has an option that would allow Hamilton to move on and wear Ferrari red as early as the 2025 season.

Hamilton, who has driven for Mercedes since 2013, is Formula 1’s all-time leader with 103 wins, and his seven championships are tied with former Ferrari ace Michael Schumacher. His most recent championship came in 2020. He finished third in the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings in 2023 behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez.

Ferrari drivers for 2024 are Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. Sainz is under contract through 2024, and Hamilton’s move, should it happen, would set up a Leclerc-Hamilton pairing for 2025.
