Hamilton's Ferrari Debut at Australian GP

Formula 1 fans, get ready! Lewis Hamilton's highly-anticipated first race for Ferrari has been officially confirmed as part of the 2025 F1 calendar. The F1 legend will join the Italian team for the upcoming season on a two-year deal after his departure from Mercedes.

Australian Grand Prix to Kick Off the Season

Hamilton, 39, is set to make his debut for Ferrari at the Australian Grand Prix, marking the start of the 2025 season on March 14-16. This move comes after the seven-time world champion signed a whopping £100 million deal with Ferrari earlier this year, ending his 11-year stint with Mercedes.

Notably, he finished 2nd on the circuit in 2023 but faced challenges this year, failing to finish the race alongside Mercedes teammate George Russell.

Upcoming Races on the 2025 F1 Calendar

Following the Australian GP, Hamilton will take on the Chinese Grand Prix as the second race of the season. Subsequent races in April include the Japanese, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia GPs. Stay tuned for more updates on Hamilton's journey with Ferrari!
