Asked whether he thinks that Hamilton can enjoy success at Ferrari by EverythingF1, Smedley shared a positive view on the move.
“Yes, I think it will work. I’m going to commit and I’m going to say yes,” he said.
“I think that Lewis has made a very bold decision, but he’s made a decision like all successful [people] usually do in that they back themselves.
“He’s backed himself to be able to rise to the challenge and be instrumental in Ferrari’s next world championship. For whatever reason in his mind, he thinks that Ferrari offer him the better chance of doing that [winning an eighth world title].”
