Hamilton breaks silence to fans after Ferrari switch

Hamilton breaks silence to fans after Ferrari switch

Lewis Hamilton has addressed his fans directly for the first time since turning the Formula 1 world upside down with his move to Ferrari.

The Brit, who signed a contract with Mercedes just months before the Ferrari switch was announced, will drive for the Italian team starting in the 2025 season, ending more than a decade with the Silver Arrows.

The entire paddock was left reeling at the news of his impending departure at the end of the season to join the Scuderia, where he will bid to become the first F1 driver in history to win an eighth world drivers' championship.

Understandably, communications have been kept very much to official channels since the seismic switch, but Hamilton reached out to fans on Instagram on Tuesday to convey his thanks for the support he has received.
