Lewis Hamilton’s making a bold move. Yep, he’s leaving the comfort of Mercedes. Hello, Ferrari! A fresh start, or so they say. But Hans-Joachim Stuck? He’s got his doubts.

Stuck’s not sold on this. Not one bit. “Hamilton’s one of a kind,” he admits. But Ferrari? That’s a whole different ball game. “Curious to see how he fits,” he mused to Eurosport.

### ‘Hamilton cannot be a big personality at Ferrari’

Now, here’s the kicker. “He’s gotta blend in,” Stuck points out. At 73, the man’s seen a thing or two. “Ferrari’s not like the others. You’re not the star of the show.” In Italy, the spotlight’s harsh. Every tiny slip? It’s front-page news. Hamilton’s in for a ride.

Hamilton’s eyeing that eighth world title. Dream big, right? Breaking Schumacher’s record with Ferrari would be epic. “Records are meant to be smashed,” Stuck nods. But boy, it’s not gonna be a walk in the park.
