Hamilton will join Ferrari – level 3

12-02-2024 07:00

Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion, has announced his departure from Mercedes at the end of the 2024 season, signing a multi-year deal with Ferrari.

Despite committing to Mercedes until 2025, Hamilton activated a release clause in his contract, citing the desire for a new challenge. His move to Ferrari signals a significant shift in F1 dynamics, with expectations high for his potential to lead Ferrari to their first driver’s title since 2007.

Hamilton’s decision leaves Mercedes searching for a replacement driver, while Ferrari eagerly awaits his arrival, hoping to capitalize on his expertise in their pursuit of success.

Difficult words: clause (a particular and separate article or section in a treaty or contract), capitalize (to profit from something), expertise (expert skill or knowledge in a particular field).
