Lewis Hamilton caused a shock wave in Formula 1 earlier this week. He announced that he will drive for the Ferrari team from 2025. It is a sensational transfer and it seems that Hamilton can earn a huge salary at Ferrari.
On Thursday, Mercedes announced that Hamilton will leave the team after the upcoming season. The Ferrari team then announced that Hamilton will drive for them from 2025 and that he has signed a multi-year contract. According to the well-established Italian medium Formu1a.Uno, Hamilton can earn a huge amount of money. The medium reports that Hamilton can earn around 100 million dollars a year through his salary, sponsorship deals, image rights and bonuses.
According to Formu1a.Uno, Ferrari has been working hard for the transfer. According to the medium, Hamilton’s switch came about at the wish of Ferrari president John Elkann. After the departure of Mattia Binotto, Elkann started creating ‘his’ Ferrari, according to the medium. The arrival of team boss Frédéric Vasseur played an important role in this, as did the contract extension of Charles Leclerc. The medium also reports that Elkann will ensure that Hamilton’s fight for diversity and inclusivity will also be implemented at Ferrari.
