Shocking news in the world of motorsport, 7-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton will reportedly be leaving Mercedes to join Ferrari.

The 39-year-old joined Mercedes in 2013, winning 6 titles and 8 Constructors championships with the British outfit.

But now, despite signing a contract extension with Mercedes last year, Lewis Hamilton is set to jump ship to the Italian team in 2025, replacing Spaniard Carlos Sainz.

The news has not yet been confirmed or denied by either Ferrari or Mercedes.
