perez claims ‘jealousy’ behind Hamilton Ferrari interest

Sergio Perez is expecting Lewis Hamilton at Ferrari in 2025 to be fascinating viewing, given the size of the seven-time World Champion’s move.

 

 

Lewis Hamilton announcing his 2025 switch to Ferrari at the start of February has without a doubt been the most discussed moment of the winter break, with Sergio Perez intrigued by the “dynamics” of the move.

 

2024 will be Hamilton’s 12th and final season as a Mercedes driver, as a result of him having activated an exit clause in his new contract which he only signed last August. It’ll bring to a close the 39-year-old’s relationship with the German manufacturer, which started when he was just 13 years old.

 

Hamilton’s unexpected switch has in many ways had a direct effect on Perez, as ‘silly season’ has commenced significantly earlier than usual. Perez is one of 13 drivers on the grid without a deal for 2025, although he’s currently “not bothered” by the driver market coming to life so early.

 

Addressing Hamilton’s move when asked by RacingNews365, Perez replied: “Interesting, but more than that, I think the dynamics, it’s going to be interesting to watch from the outside.

 

“Having a driver that is moving teams, we all know how jealous the teams are on sharing information, because, obviously, Lewis has been there [Mercedes] for many years, and he will be taking a lot of knowledge to another team.

 

“So again, there will be some interesting dynamics to watch from the outside.”
