What McLaren really need is a bad a## in charge ala Helmut Marko who is willing to do what has to be done and that is grow some balls and show Lewis Hamilton the exit door at the end of this year. The marketing people from the city have had their say long enough and now that the house of cards is crashing down and no doubt its already happening there is no reason for McLaren to be associated with Lewis anymore. No progress for some time now means in F1 terms he is falling behind ever more drivers year after year and the same excuses beeing used for 5 years getting tiresome. What ever his issues may be that prevents him from being on Alonsos or Vettels level consistently, if he hasnt fixed them by now he never will. Anyway the pattern is there and its in Buttons favour, this year he will be able to beat Hamilton on merrit, if Hamilton keeps crashing or otherwise underperforming wont matter anymore, as even his A game is no longer good enough.

mr crabtree. 2012 is the last year of lulus current contract, so unless he picks his game up this year, you could well find that whitmarsh "does a marko" and makes a decision which could upset a few here.

I find it very comical that so many stick up for Hammi like he's just SO good. Also can we please give Button some credit. He's a good driver. Much better then Lulu I think. He actually races smart, clean, and patient which in F1 you need to do. The only one who could do it right being crazy was Senna which going backwards, Hammi needs to realize sometime in his spoiled life he is not on the same page as. Lulu is another Jauques Villeneuve. His time already came and went. McLaren should show him the door this season and put a talented driver in that seat next to button.

Hamilton had a bad season due to his personal life but come on!! That can't have been the only thing thaqt dented his performance. I think part of it is that McLaren have taken such a warmth to Button that it has knocked the wind out of his sails... he sounded like he was annoyed that Button had built such a good team around himself while he hasn't. Hamilton may be the faster driver but Button is the better driver that has shown over the last couple of years.

Lewis just stop making the mistakes and you will be no1 again at Mclaren. Button has far more experience in f1 but Lewis has the raw talent, but must watch his back regards Whitmarsh.

Richard considering drivers see each other almost every week during a season and the paddock is quite small they do need some time away from each other. We don't hear stories of Mark Webber or Sebastian Vettel or even Fernando Alonso or Felipe Massa going out for drinks after a race now do we?
