Lewis Hamilton braces for emotional farewell Season with Mercedes ahead of Ferrari move

According to AFP, Lewis Hamilton has shared his anticipation of an emotionally charged final season with Mercedes, the team with which he clinched six of his seven world championships. The 39-year-old racer, set to join Ferrari in 2025, expressed unwavering confidence in Mercedes, a team he's been part of since 2013. Ahead of the Bahrain season opener, Hamilton spoke about the emotional journey he expects this year, emphasizing his belief in Mercedes' capability to win another championship due to its exceptional team and management. Despite transitioning to Ferrari next year, Hamilton's admiration for Mercedes remains unaffected, highlighting the team's historical significance and his contribution to its legacy.

Hamilton's move to Ferrari, under a multi-year contract replacing Carlos Sainz, marks a new chapter in his career, driven by the challenge of revitalizing the iconic but recently underachieving team. While aiming to outperform Ferrari in his last year with Mercedes, Hamilton praised the Italian team's strong showing at the weekend's race.

The British driver also highlighted the unchanged support and dedication within Mercedes, reflecting on the emotional milestones of his final season with the team. He acknowledged the inherent challenges but noted an improved start compared to the previous two seasons, with Mercedes aiming to close the gap with the front-runners. Reigning champion Max Verstappen remains the favourite for the title, but Hamilton remains focused on contributing to Mercedes' success in his farewell year.
