Great to see Hamilton receiving the recognition he deserves. Undoubtedly the fastest raw speed driver in F1 and now knowing how to manage that. Senna had 65 poles but only 19 fastest laps. If you ever read this Lewis let Vettel settle for the Mansell fastest laps fame you can settle for Senna's glory!

Yes i saw Brundle pumping Ron for info on Sky regards that contract with Ron being upfront with his comments. there as been talk of 60m but over 3years with an extension if both parties wish.

Lewis has said in a colum on Sky that he has no ambitions to race for Ferrari and that he is happy at Mclaren. He should show some loyalty and stay with the team that has put him where he is today as they will most of the time give him a decent car.

2009, lets hope Lewis's management team will take Mclaren's relationship with Lewis over the years into consideration. But it does not look as if there is better than Mclaren out there as the two other top teams will recruit via youth.

Well, well, at last Ron Dennis decides to get involved with a remark which in all honesty should not have been mentioned as now we know the limits of McLaren's offer and so do their competitors. Now its just a question of lets hear what other teams have to offer if they wish to up their games with two 1st class drivers as opposed to just one. Letting the media know of the limits of your negotiations doesn't help your cause nor the persons services you are trying to retain. Oh well lets wait and see as we get closer to the end of his contract.

Yes, but with the ability to market his own brand. Which would be worth far more than the contract itself. Try not to pull out what you want to hear. And actually understand the desire of both.
