Lewis Hamilton, who has driven for Mercedes since 2013 and won 6 world championships with them, is leaving Mercedes at the end of 2022 to join Ferrari starting in 2023. Hamilton had signed a contract extension with Mercedes last season through 2025, but a clause in the contract allowed him to leave at the end of 2024.
