To many- and remember there’s hardly anyone ever who doesn’t state his or her thoughts about the sport we love- this is a grand move. And at the same time, there are also those according to whom, this is a move that is aimed at little more than anything else, but one last big shot at glory. But whatever it is, Sir Lewis Hamilton moving to Ferrari in 2025 has got everyone talking.

It’s made the quietest mind in the room stir with emotion. It’s got hearts racing, expectations moving and given Formula 1, even before the start of its brand new season, something huge to talk about.

Rare are those occasions where one begins to think of permutations and combinations for the next season even before a fresh current season could go underway. Won’t you agree. That honestly is that essence of Hamilton’s forthcoming move to Ferrari.

Quite frankly, just who’d have thought Hamilton opting to switch to Ferrari in what lies ahead especially having experienced whirlwind and brilliant success with his current Mercedes team? For sure, once he was etched in the Silver of the Silver arrows, it was hard to foresee a switch to red happening.. happening for real.

And here we are. Perhaps just makes sense to contend with the fact that where it comes to the highest echelons of racing, fair enough to say, never say never in Formula 1.

Rather understandably, Hamilton’s big- and now- confirmed Ferrari announcement has got the big names off the grid speaking. It recently elicited response from none other than former world champion, Jacques Villeneuve.

When asked recently with regard to what his thoughts were about seven time world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton joining Ferrari from the start of 2025, the following were Jacques Villeneuve’s thoughts and he made no bones about expressing his gut feel:

“He [Hamilton] comes the most successful ever, why should he be? And before getting him, they gave him a very long contract to keep him quiet. A good move, now even clearer.”

However, that is not all; the Canadian also explained in some detail about what the forthcoming move to Ferrari means for Sir Lewis Hamilton as he stated:

“Two parties will be created at Maranello, as has already happened. But it will also be fun. If we rediscover the Lewis of the great days it will be formidable, also because he has nothing to lose. And finishing in style with Ferrari is the best thing in the world.”
