F1 LIVE: Hamilton chaos caused by rival’s dad leaking news as Ferrari set to be torn apart | F1 | Sport

The F1 world was rocked earlier this week by Lewis Hamilton announcing that he would be joining Ferrari. There hadn’t been any whispers of the Brit moving to the Italian outfit for some months before news suddenly broke that a deal had already been agreed for him to join in 2025.

It’s been reported that Mercedes boss Toto Wolff hadn’t long known himself before it came global news, leading to the Brackley-based outfit calling an emergency meeting to update their staff.

And now it’s been claimed all the chaos had been caused by Carlos Sainz’s father, with claiming – as per GP Blog – he leaked the news to the Spanish press, where the story originally emerged.

Hamilton’s imminent move has sparked a lot of talk about how Charles Leclerc will be treated going forward, with the Monegasque driver seen as Ferrari’s No 1 above Sainz Jr. However, that could all change when the seven-time champion joins and ex-F1 title winner Jacques Villeneuve has predicted the team will be split into two parties.
