Businessman, television personality and former motorsport team owner Eddie Jordan was recently interviewed by OLGB and asked to analyze the main events in this start of the 2023 Formula 1 championship.
During the long chat, he also focused on the situation at Mercedes and, in particular, on the future of Lewis Hamilton. The Irish entrepreneur believes that the seven-times world champion would be better off leaving the Brackley team and then landing in Maranello to finish his Formula 1 career with Ferrari.
The words of Eddie Jordan
“Lewis Hamilton is a McLaren man, but I don’t think he will go back there given the position the team is in. The only other place I see Hamilton is Ferrari. Formula 1 needs Lewis Hamilton in a Ferrari and Ferrari also needs Lewis Hamilton,” said Eddie Jordan when talking about the Briton’s near future.
The seven-time Formula 1 world champion appears increasingly dissatisfied with how things are going at Mercedes, and in fact has not yet extended his agreement, which is set to expire at the end of the 2023 Formula 1 season.

“At the moment there is no new contract and Toto Wolff has said that if he were Hamilton he would consider leaving,” Eddie Jordan pointed out. Then he focused his attention on the team principal of the Silver Arrows: “He should face criticism like a man, like a team leader, like a managing director and face the fact that Mercedes was wrong”.
In the end, Eddie Jordan focused on Charles Leclerc and was not particularly impressed with what the Monegasque driver has showed so far with the Maranello team: “He hasn’t shown us enough, but the pressure of driving for Ferrari is enormous. If Charles Leclerc went to a smaller team like Mercedes, we would see fireworks.” – the former motorsport team owner concluded.
