Lewis Hamilton will reunite with Loic Serra at Ferrari, and, after Bono and Shovlin, another Mercedes engineer is aiming for Maranello.
Last year, Loic Serra chose to leave Mercedes in favor of Ferrari. The same path that Lewis Hamilton will also take in 2025. And if it is true that the presence of the French technician convinced Lewis to choose the Scuderia, the Englishman may not be the only one.
Immediately after the announcement of the seven-time world champion’s move to Ferrari, there were rumors of a possible exodus of Mercedes technicians to Maranello.
To be honest, the most credible rumors concern Peter Bonninghton and Andrew Shovlin. However, both of them seem not to favor the move to Italy.
Loic Serra, Riccardo Musconi, and the domino effect towards Ferrari:
A different story for Riccardo Musconi. The Imola native is responsible for the on-track activities of the German team and historically linked to Lewis Hamilton.
It is not a secret that the Englishman wants to surround himself with his most loyal collaborators to have a familiar environment from the start, and in this perspective, Riccardo Musconi could be a decisive factor for many to follow him.
The Italian engineer could play the same role in red, thus occupying a key position for the development of the car throughout the season. This is an aspect in which the Scuderia has been lacking over the years and will be crucial for the 2026 Formula 1 season.
With Loic Serra and Riccardo Musconi leading the way, it is not so unlikely that part of Hamilton’s staff will follow the Englishman to Ferrari. In short, it is very likely that Lewis will not arrive alone at Ferrari. This is also an indicator of his value and is absolutely not to be overlooked.
