Lewis Hamilton has officially joined Mercedes after 10 years and moved to Ferrari.
Hamilton seemed to have lost patience with Mercedes who after two years of poor design decisions have left Lewis winless for the first time in his career.
Ferrari has always seen Lewis as their dream signing and has finally managed to find a breakthrough with a potential triggering of a break clause in his current two-year extension with the Silver Arrows.
This extension only came after intense negotiations last year and a raft of promises that the 2024 car will bring them back into the title fight as well as keeping staff such as James Allison long term.
If this does happen. Mercedes will have to decide about its replacement sooner rather than later as its only young driver is Kimi Antonelli (who has yet to even start in Formula Two) and its only current F1 potential is Esteban Ocon whom Mercedes seemingly has kept on its management books.
