Jenson Button says he can see no reason why team-mate Lewis Hamilton would want to swap McLaren for Mercedes, as has been rumoured in the build-up to the Italian Grand Prix.

It would be pretty awesome if McLaren suddenly decides they don't necessarily want Lewis anymore and go with someone like Kobayashi or Hulkenberg for a whole lot less coins. Let's see where Lewis ends up then.

Lewis apparently takes for granted that he can stay at McLaren no matter what and that they just have to give him 20 mio a year for it. This whole spectacle is starting to annoy me. McLaren have to grow a pair, make him an offer an give him a deadline and say take it or leave...

Of course Lewis takes for granted that he can stay at Mclaren, he is their number 1 driver after all.

He can take as long as he likes Mclaren wont make any decisions until they know what he is doing.

I see that you have joined Richard with the inside word about Mclaren
..Nothing is going to change at McLaren..Lewis represents big money
Sponsorship. He is the most exciting sensation to come to F1 sense
Sir. Moss. You may dislike him or as some display extreme displeasure
that he is the F1's #1 attraction. Vettel is the two time champion of
witch we hear little. Lewis is young and comes with nonautomotive BS
noise.. matters little. As long as he drives the way he dose the Fans
will follow. He is the man, as long as he remains on top of the top
five he will be the most valuable commodity in F1.
One thing is undeniable, behind the wheel of a F1 car the little
guy really can fly.

Clearly that is @pole positions fantasy!

Why are McLaren wanting to hold onto this spoilt, immature child, he is so unpredictable you don't know what he's going to do next. He is bad for the McLaren brand as the whole Twitter saga showed.

The Hamilton fans can believe what they want but Hamilton isn't as good or as wanted as you all think.

@ Liam48 I don't think so my friend. A lot of other posters feel the same way as u can see. I'm like u I would love to see Lewis leave Mclaren. The only difference is we have different reasons for wanting his departure. Who are u anyway? and where's the real Liam48? lol

My personal interpretation of the last GP is that McLaren pulled the rug from under Lewis . What driver would agree to go ahead with a set up that leaves him almost a second slower than his team mate . There is more to come out about that last race . I am convinced about that and that is what the uploading of data was about . That is only my opinion but i feel i am right . And Whitmarsh i have never seen him look so happy . He certainly is never so bouncy when Lewis wins . The guys body language is an easy give away . Lewis will go to Mercedes next season and he is waiting till his chance of winning the title have gone before announcing it . If i am wrong i will come back and apologise and eat a huge piece of humble pie . Either that or i will never come on crash F1 again .

Given that Lewis was out at the first corner we really don't know how competitive his race set-up was. Who knows, he might have taken the fight to Jenson. Why is it that whenever Lewis does not meet some people's expectations they have to come up with some wild conspiracy theories?

mark. i agree with you, and have tried to point it out to others. FIVE of the top 10 cars on the grid, had a high downforce set up. bearing in mind that five of the top 10 were eliminated in the first corner, it is hard to quantify which set up was best. it was a little like swings and roundabouts. what you lose on the straights, you gain in the corners. monza is more likely to be a low downforce circuit.
