Lewis Hamilton dropped a bombshell last season. He’s sticking around in Formula 1 for a bit longer—two more seasons, to be exact. And guess what? He’s not going solo. For the 2024 season, he’s got a familiar face cheering him on from the sidelines.

Oh, and about that familiar face. It’s none other than his old pal, Hynes. They took a break in 2021, deciding it was for the best. But hey, breaks can be good, right?

Hynes was Hamilton’s go-to guy from 2016 to 2021. Like, his right-hand man. And starting in 2024, he’s back in action, focusing on Hamilton’s racing gigs. A Mercedes spokesperson spilled the beans to The Telegraph. They were like, “Lewis can’t wait for the new season. And yep, Marc Hynes is on board.”

So, here’s the scoop on Hynes. He’s not just any guy. He’s a long-time buddy and ex-colleague of Hamilton’s. His job? To lend his expertise and help Lewis shine on the track. Marc’s laser-focused on racing stuff and supporting Lewis’s quest to climb back to the top.

Hamilton’s still chasing that elusive eighth world championship. The guy from Stevenage is neck and neck with Michael Schumacher. But, Hamilton’s got an edge with more wins and pole positions than the German legend.

Crazy, right?
