Sir Lewis Hamilton is a British racing driver, born on January 7, 1985, in Stevenage Hertfordshire.
The world-renowned car racer, who is currently competing in Formula One, driving for Mercedes, joined the McLaren Young Driver Programme in 1998.
But now, Lewis Hamilton is on the verge of completing his move from Mercedes to Ferrari.
Reports emerging from the United Kingdom confirms that Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari have already reached an agreement over the proposed deal.
One of the aims of the deal, according to reports, is for Hamilton to compete alongside Charles Leclerc during the 2025 season.
The 39-year-old British car racer, who is a seven-time world champion, is still contracted to Mercedes until 2025:
The implication here is that he could choose to remain with the car brand until 2025 or terminate the contract this year.
Hamilton signed a two-year contract extension with Mercedes in August 2023, marking his thirteenth year with the brand. He won the most recent of his seven world titles in 2020 with them.
According to reports in Spain and Italy, the contract Lewis Hamilton signed with Ferrari is expected to officially take effect in 2025.
It was also gathered that the friendship that exists between Hamilton and Ferrari president John Elkann made the deal easier and possible.
Since 2019 when Lewis Hamilton was the reigning world champion, Ferrari has been nurturing the plan to convince the British car racer to leave Mercedes for its team.
Now, it is evident that the car brand has finally achieved that aim.
