14 drivers on the grid are out of contract at the end of the 2024 season, setting up a potentially crazy winter for transfers, which Kravitz thanks Hamilton and Ferrari for as it has 'exploded' the 'static' driver market
Kravitz: Hamilton move 'exploded' driver market
Speaking on Sky Sports about Hamilton and his move to the Italian team, when asked whether he made the decision with his head or his heart, Kravitz responded: “Probably both.
“We should say thank you Ferrari and thank you Lewis Hamilton for exploding the drivers’ market that had looked very static for this year.
“I think Lewis Hamilton, he had to ask himself one question and that was ‘can I win another championship at Mercedes?’ And if the answer to that was yes, then he’s got this year to do it.
“But if the answer to that is no and he thinks that Red Bull are going to win the championship this year and probably 2025 and, who knows about 2026, then he thinks ‘well, my career is going to end maybe in the next four or fives years, I’d like to drive for Ferrari on day.’
