Who was it that wanted to sign with Simon Fuller's mob? Oh that would be Lulu, not because he needed support or advice as a driver but because he wanted "to expand his American brand!"
That pretty much sums up Hamilton, in his head he is way bigger than an F1 driver, he's an A-list celeb! Time to get back to basics Lulu, try being a decent F1 driver for a few years and forget about your dreams of being an American starlet!

Vettel (to my knowledge) is younger and has no manager, he does however have a boss (Horner/Marko/etc), during Michael Schumachers dominance at Ferrari, Jean Todt was in charge, who is in charge at McLaren?

I think Hamilton sr was too busy telling jr how good he is to give him an ass whoopin when he acted like a spoilt sh!t when he was a kid. Hamilton is as fast or faster than anyone out there but his racing relies on involving other drivers in 50/50 banzai moves. When they stick, he thinks he is god. When they go wrong, he blames someone. Penalty or no penalty, too often he comes off better. When he's in the fastest car, he's awesome. As soon as someone else has a faster car, he puts on his trucker hat and becomes Nascar Hamilton

Lewis does not need support!
He needs to sort himself out and asap!
The way he is driving at the moment and with his current attitude, he will end up with more enemies than what there are teams on the grid!
Hamiltons management team cannot take the blame for his driving, it is down to Lewis to sort him self out, or he should just get out!
End of story!! Enough said!!

Well, if you look at how he was driving when his dad was managing him he was much more controlled, driving sensibly, smart our of the car too, but still able to drive the pants off it. Look at him now and the silly mistakes are coming in, he's rather full of himself (not in a good way) etc. Makes you think that his dad really did know what was best for him, how to manage him properly (and that involved keeping out of all the celeb stuff). Lulu wasn't a fan, dumps his dad, goes after the fame and this is where it's led... If anything Lewis' actions show how well his dad managed him, even if Lulu could't see it....

I think the way Martin Withmarsh is pretty much encouraging the way Hamilton has been handling himself on and off track for say, the last year and a half by constantly making excuses for him and even telling him to drive more agressively after Monza isn't helping things one bit.

Sticking up for the ones in your corner is a great attribute, but you can take it too far. If Hamilton makes a mistake he should be able to deal with being held accountable for it. No problem, just accept it, move on and learn from it. The way things are going now they seem so scared of hurting Lewis' ego they let him get away with anything and he starts to believe he can do no wrong, which is very unhealthy on and off track.

Managing "celebrity" is very different to managing a sports star.

In celebrity world, controversy - leaked nude photos, sex tapes, drug scandals, etc gets more exposure than positive news, & maximum exposure is always the goal.

Maybe that is why Lewis is crashing into everyone this year, why he gave that daft interview at Monaco - F1's biggest event - & why he keeps saying stupid things to the media. Could this be his management companies strategy?

The FIA needs to slap him with a race ban or 2 for his on-track behavior, then maybe Lewis & his management will realize that what happens on the track is the most important consideration, & the other stuff is just 'decoration'.
