Lewis Hamilton welcomes ‘exciting’ expansion for Formula One

The seven-time world champion driver believes it would benefit the sport in many ways but acknowledged his opinion may cause disquiet among many in the F1 paddock. F1 has not hosted 11 teams on the grid since 2016 but, earlier this week, the FIA gave its approval on Andretti’s application to enter F1. The process now moves on to Formula One Management and the existing teams, who can veto the entry. Andretti’s team have enjoyed success in other series including four IndyCar championships, six wins at the Indy 500 and the 2023 drivers title in Formula E. Hamilton’s position was supported by the world champion, Max Verstappen, who can take his third title in Saturday’s sprint race at the Lusail circuit.
