Regardless, Guanyu highlighted that this move was exciting and would be fun to see the Briton drive for the reds from 2025.

Nevertheless, Hamilton still has his final year left at Mercedes to prove his racing mettel. The Briton will likely push himself to the limit and maximize results to end the season of a ‘high’ with his long-time team. Hence, amidst these shocking news, the grid prepares for the challenges upcoming in the 2024 season.
