Giancarlo Fisichella Optimistic About Lewis Hamilton’s Ferrari Venture, Believes Schumacher Would Be Pleased

Former F1 star Giancarlo Fisichella has shared his belief that the legendary Michael Schumacher would be pleased to see Lewis Hamilton join Ferrari in the upcoming season.

Fisichella’s comments come as Hamilton prepares to bid farewell to Mercedes, his team for the past 11 years, and embark on a new chapter with the Italian giants.

Hamilton’s Ambition to Surpass Schumacher’s Record

Lewis Hamilton, a seven-time world champion like Schumacher, has expressed his desire to surpass the German icon’s record by clinching an eighth title.

Schumacher, who won five world titles with Ferrari, has been out of the public eye since a serious skiing accident in December 2013.

Fisichella’s Perspective on Schumacher’s Hypothetical View

While Fisichella acknowledges not having spoken to Schumacher directly due to his absence from public life, he speculates that the 55-year-old would want Hamilton to succeed at Ferrari.

Fisichella stated, “‘For sure, Michael Schumacher would be happy to see Lewis Hamilton driving for Ferrari next year and winning the championship, why not?'”

Ferrari’s Unique Family Atmosphere

Reflecting on his own experience with Ferrari in 2009, Fisichella highlighted the team’s special atmosphere, describing it as a “family.”

He believes this familial environment contributed to Schumacher’s success and predicts that Hamilton will quickly feel integrated into the team.

Optimism Amidst Competition

Despite Ferrari’s tough start to the 2024 season, with Red Bull dominating the first two races, Fisichella remains optimistic about Hamilton’s prospects.

The British driver faces the challenge of catching up to Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who is emerging as the favorite for a fourth straight world title.

Hamilton’s Tough Start at Mercedes

Hamilton’s start to the season with Mercedes has been challenging, with the 39-year-old failing to finish in the top six in the opening two races.

As he prepares for the move to Ferrari, Hamilton and his new team have work ahead to compete with their rivals and make a mark in the 2024 Formula 1 season.
