F1 » McLaren 'expect' to agree new long term deal with Hamilton


Martin Whitmarsh: I think there has been more speculation, more concern and more interest in this situation in the media, than perhaps within the team or within Lewis' mind

@ Darzetboy Know where else to go? I'm guessing but, I don't think there's many other drivers out there that would turn down an opportunity to drive for Mclaren. I guess he won't be going to Nascar, Marussia, or Caterham after all. I suspect all this was just wishful thinking by some well wishers.

McLaren is not succeeding as a constructor, yet continues to do what is has always done - Einstein's definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over, while expecting a different result each time). In Enzo Ferrari's day, a long term driver contract would have been seen as providing the driver more comfort and control than he deserves, while locking the team out of engaging a hot new talent, punish bad performance/behavior, or just make changes it feels necessary to suit a team strategy.

McLaren is doing fine. Always on the verge, always in the hunt. There maybe flashier teams, but let's face it. McLaren is rock solid. If I were Hamilton I would try to secure long term contract with most benefits, and then concentrate on WC.

mclaren have been sure of Lulu's position all along.
That is why they always sounded sure that he will re sign another contract with them.
The only doubt they ever had was him quitting formula one.
