Sky Sports F1 commentator and expert analyst Martin Brundle feels that Lewis Hamilton will be evaluating the possibility of joining Scuderia Ferrari for the following years, in case Mercedes’ recent struggles continue and Toto Wolff’s side will not be able to recover the gap to Red Bull during the current season.
While during the previous championship Lewis Hamilton repeatedly expressed his desire to continue with the Silver Arrows and therefore extend his contract that expire at the end of the 2023 Formula One campaign, the British driver has recently been vocal in pointing out that the team chose not to listen to his concerns regarding last year’s single-seater design.
As a result, former Formula 1 driver Martin Brundle is wondering how Lewis Hamilton’s future in the sport could look like. The Sky Sports F1 commentator is aware that Lewis Hamilton’s main target in Formula 1 remains that of winning at least one more world championship to reach a record-breaking number of eight titles and feels he would agree to move to Ferrari if the Maranello team shows a potential to defeat Red Bull:
“I think it’s absolutely clear that taking that eighth title is everything to him now,” Martin Brundle confirmed in a discussion for the Sky Sports F1 Podcast – “To move that hightide mark and be right up there and considered the greatest and have one more than anybody else is important to him, and I think he’ll want to drive wherever he can achieve that.” – he added.
At the same time, Martin Brundle pointed out that “if he went to Ferrari, for example, would you be certain you could achieve that better there? They’ve got a number of their own challenges at the moment,” – the Sky Sports F1 expert analyst continued.

“Would he get in the door at Red Bull? Because that’s the only place right now you’d think he could go to. Could you have a [Max] Verstappen-Hamilton line-up? Could you afford them? Do you need that? Because I think Red Bull are quite happy with a number one and a one-and-a-half driver in their car. So it’s all very well saying he’ll go somewhere else, but where at the moment? So he’s better to make what he’s got at a magnificent team work.” – Martin Brundle concluded.
