Now, Alonso caught wind of Hamilton’s leap but not right off the bat. He was knee-deep in training when the news broke, totally sidestepping the initial frenzy. “Missed all the stress from everybody,” he quipped. To him, the shock wasn’t the switch itself.

### Alonso, a Ferrari expert
Alonso’s no stranger to the Ferrari frenzy. He’s been there, done that. The weight of an entire nation’s expectations? He’s felt it. Offering Hamilton advice, though? He’s on the fence. “Yeah, I don’t know,” he muses. Just months ago, Hamilton’s dreams were elsewhere. But dreams change, and Alonso’s just hoping Hamilton finds his groove with Ferrari. “It’s a special team,” he admits. Winning makes it even more so. And win they might. Ferrari’s been on fire, their cars speeding like there’s no tomorrow. Alonso believes Hamilton might just be the missing piece for a championship win. Last year, even with Red Bull dominating, Ferrari was nipping at their heels. So, yeah, the potential’s there.

Rumors are swirling, too. Whispers of folks from Mercedes, Red Bull, even Aston Martin itching to join Hamilton at Ferrari. Alonso’s take? A shrug of the shoulders. “I don’t know. I have no info and I don’t care what Lewis Hamilton is doing.”

In a nutshell, Hamilton’s gearing up for a Ferrari adventure, and Alonso’s watching from the sidelines, curious yet detached. It’s a new chapter for Hamilton, and only time will tell how this story unfolds.
