Seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has turned a deaf ear to the hubbub surrounding his move to Ferrari next year. The Briton said he did not need to ‘justify’ his decision.

The 39-year-old veteran shocked Formula in February when he said he would leave Mercedes at the end of 2024 following 12 years, to join the Italian team.

Ahead of the Chinese GP, Hamilton was asked regarding Ferrari’s strong start to the season — they have consistently been closest to the dominant Red Bulls — meaning his decision to move was justified.

“I feel that my decision does not need to be proven correct,” Hamilton said in a press conference, as broadcast by AFP, Thursday (18/4).

“I know what’s right for me and that hasn’t changed since I made the decision.”

“There was no moment where I questioned it. And I was not influenced by other people’s comments,” he continued.

Hamilton also admitted that he received criticism when he left McLaren to join Mercedes in 2012.

“Even now, there are still people who continue to talk bad things and that will continue until the end of this year,” Hamilton said.

“And I have to do what I did before.”

“Only you know what’s right for you and this will be an exciting time for me,” he concluded. (Ant/Z-1)
