Former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher says he doesn’t believe Lewis Hamilton is moving to Ferrari to replicate his brother Michael’s success.

Since Lewis Hamilton’s 2025 move to Ferrari was announced, there has been a lot of speculation regarding his reasons to make the jump.

When asked if Lewis could perhaps be looking to replicate Michael Schumacher’s success, Michael’s brother Ralf said he doesn’t believe that’s the case.

“I don’t think he’s doing that because of Michael,” the German said.

“I think he’s doing it because Ferrari is one of the places to be in history of Formula 1.

“Especially for a driver like Lewis that achieved almost everything, and was very unlucky not to be an eight-time World Champion, to be honest.

“So I think, for him, it’s just the dot on the ‘i’ to make it perfect. For Lewis, I think it can be a very good move to do something else in his life. It will only be his third team, so I can understand.

“Some drivers really love to end their careers or win with Ferrari and I think he would like to do that,” Schumacher concluded.
