Red Bull Responds to Hamilton Joining Ferrari: Driver Swap Rumors

Red Bull Racing humorously responded to Lewis Hamilton‘s unexpected transfer from Mercedes to Ferrari in 2025 with social media posts featuring their drivers’ bewildered reactions and joking about hosting an ’emergency podcast’ on the topic.


‣ Red Bull Racing responded to Lewis Hamilton’s surprising transfer from Mercedes to Ferrari for the 2025 season with social media posts.

‣ The team shared a video of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez reacting in mock surprise to the news, highlighting their camaraderie and the playful atmosphere within the team.

‣ Red Bull Racing humorously suggested hosting an ’emergency podcast’ in the cooldown room, a space frequently occupied by Max Verstappen, to discuss the recent transfer news.

Wow, did you hear? Red Bull Racing’s eyebrows are way up. Lewis Hamilton’s jumping ship from Mercedes to Ferrari in 2025. That’s a biggie.

### Red Bull’s got eyes on the Ferrari-Hamilton saga
So, Christian Horner and Helmut Marko, the brains at Red Bull, couldn’t just sit back. Nope. They hit social media with not one, but two reactions. First off, they dropped this video. It’s Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, just gazing off into the unknown. You can almost hear the crickets.

Verstappen’s like, “They’re not really swapping drivers, are they?” And Perez, with a nod, goes, “Yep, they did.” But hold up. It wasn’t all as it seemed. These guys were actually in the Mojave, prepping for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Racing hovercrafts, because why not? Their opponents? Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda from VCARB (you know, the team formerly known as Scuderia AlphaTauri).

Then, Red Bull threw another curveball. They’ve got this cooldown room, right? Post-race chill zone. Except now, it’s kinda turned into the ‘Max Verstappen podcast’ spot. Max is always there, different guests each time. And with today’s bombshell? They’re teasing an ’emergency podcast.’

Emergency podcast, anyone? — Oracle Red Bull Racing (@redbullracing) February 1, 2024

Crazy times, huh? Just when you think you’ve seen it all in F1, the game changes. Again.
