Lewis is what the sponsors and fans want, not some overrated smiling face...

With all lewis's bling and LA lifestyle and regular tantrums i should think lewis is a sponsors nightmare, part of his contract renewal demands is to actually do less pr work for the team. Yes he is a fast driver, but then so would most be in a mclaren.

Some people her make me laugh, some couldn't stand the fact that he wants to leave McLaren, some couldn't stand the fact that McLaren haven't sacked him! The main fact here is that Lewis is a piece of meat! Mclaren could dump him when they like like how they did to the last 2 Finish drivers they had. One thing Lewis has over the rest is that he is more makertable than other drivers. David Beckham wasn't signed for his talent but his appeal around the would! Lewis should move on and don't look back with no regrets its not that Mclaren was winning before Lewis arrived so they need you more! According to McLaren after the Hungary race they said Lewis brought home the car when we ran out of ideas!

I'm told that Martin Whitmarsh is so downcast about things that the only time he ever breaks into laughter these days is when he trolls this board and reads all the ill-informed/invented crap most of you write....

if you look at yalla, they are saying that a plan b is taking shape. this would involve either diresta or kovi. interestingly, direstas new manager is also buttons manager. The plot thickens!

Jay, for your enlightenment, the McL F1 team has won 8 constructors titles and 12 drivers titles since it was founded in '63. Ergo, McL won a great many races and titles before Hamilton arrived and will continue to do so long after he has gone.
Sponsors spend untold millions promoting their products and services in global markets, but who, I ask, really wants to be associated with a cretin who repeatedly says and does very stupid things, including posting highly confidential team set up data on Twitter? They say there is no such thing as bad publicity, but I can assure you that there is, and dear old Lewis generates it by the bucket load. Good luck Mercedes. You will need it.

@They won 8 titles in 49years wow, how many has Redbull won in the last 5 years! The Last driver to win the title b4 Lewis was Mika 2000 the Senna in 1991 that's 3 drivers in 21 years! And what confidential about speed differential between 2 cars its not like he twit the design of the Engine, if McLaren are that upset why didn't they sack him for gross misconduct or are we talking about the same Mclaren that had confidential documents of ferrari? Let them sack him if they have the balls to do so! 3 champions in 21 years even williams had 4 champions in 21 years

Plan B or no plan B, McLaren is trying to give Lewis a hint that he needs to heed to... no one is indispensable. Lewis you are on notice think carefully before making that "I am too good and I am worth more" mistake. You simply are not that good, you are far from being consistent, and consistency and being good as well as being fast is what a world class champion is made of.
