ZOMG! I just figured out how to build my own F1 car and beat McLaren!

Sure if one of us who work for a company that has confidential data did that we might get canned but F1 isn't real life.

I hear a lot of people referring to Lewis as a kid. He is 27 years old and this tweeting confidential information is the act of a 16 or 18 year old. I have totally lost interesr and support of Mclaren. Look at the way this guy behaves, he acts like he is above everyone else. Here in the states the only people who know who the hell he is are people that follow F1. McLaren should sit him down and let him know this won't be tolerated, and cut his salary in half.

Quite frankly if I was HRT I wouldnt take this idiot on board even if he offered to drive for free. Fast, yes. Hopeless, yes. He had beginners luck in the best car and hasnt done anything since. Yes Grosjean (whom I rate) did come across on Hamilton but a good driver would have expected that to happen. Hamilton was p...ed off because Jenson destroyed him in qualifying and was trying to get to the front on the first corner. Brain dead Im afraid.

elijah. he has criticised mclaren, and macca have removed his comments. then he posted telemetry, macca had this removed,. then he posted ride height info, macca removed that.
they do not know what he will post next. but i guess that if he got a contract, he would stop this. might be wrong of course, but this appears to be a subtle form of blackmail...sign me or else...
he even tried to disguise who was actually posting these, using the name WTF.
others in the paddock are claiming that it is a "war" between lulu and macca!

Too harsh to say HRT won't take him. They would pay him for him to sign because sponsors would follow him.

Rival teams are not interested in HRT's telemetry or updates as they are well behind the others. Won't make much difference anyway. Hami would bring sponsors, tvcoverage and points to the team.

BTW Hami will take an off-seeason than to drive for HRT if he doesn't have other options. For 2013, I think Lewis would continue with Mclaren.

Richard Harris, they (mclaren) should have told him what is and what is not tolerated before they had put him in an F1 car, now it's too late, the only way forward for mclaren now is to get rid of him ASAP, only by doing that will they regain some respect as a serious team.
And Tomcol it's called brain farts and not brain dead.

You have painted quite a shocking and bizare outline of events. No wonder you point to blackmail. On top of Taz' gross misconduct. We have not heard the last of this .I am stunned.
