Lewis Hamilton retirement has become a subject of significant speculation, with potential obstacles emerging in his rumored transition to Ferrari, according to F1 pundit Peter Windsor.

Windsor suggests that Hamilton may encounter challenges similar to those faced by Charles Leclerc and might struggle to overcome the formidable presence of Max Verstappen, even if he changes teams. With his current contract at Mercedes set to expire at the end of the season and a lack of clarity surrounding his immediate future, speculation regarding Hamilton’s next move has intensified.

Meanwhile, tensions at Red Bull are escalating as team principal Christian Horner grapples with the management of both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. Recent clashes between the two drivers have heightened internal conflicts within the team, adding further complexity to Horner’s responsibilities.
