F1 Podcast: All the fallout from Hamilton's shock Ferrari move

1 min read

Lewis Hamilton's bombshell move to Ferrari for the 2025 Formula 1 season is untangled in detail in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast. 

Scott Mitchell-Malm and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw to discuss Hamilton's reasons for heading to Ferrari and evaluate the chances of the move paying off. 

We also ask what it means for Mercedes, and what it says about the team's technical progress over the winter given Hamilton was effusive about Mercedes having found its "north star" development wise in the second half of the year. 

The contenders to replace him at Mercedes are evaluated, with Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz, Alex Albon and Andrea Kimi Antonelli all potential targets in the search for a team-mate to George Russell.

The impact on the rest of the driver market is considered as well, along with a look at where Sainz might end up if he doesn't land a Mercedes drive.
