Come on Ron even you can surely agree
Lewis is unbalanced at McLaren.

No doubting he is a competitive and a talented
driver but obviously the love has worn dry
at McLaren with a Divorce in order.

He needs a new home which may also uncomplicate
his personal life.

I want to see a balanced Lewis Hamiltion although not
a fan but love watching the guy when he is complete.

Ultimately the sticking point is the team refusing to make JB fall into line and support Hamiltons championship aspirations, he sees Alonso recieve full support from Ferrari and believes he deserves the same from McLaren. still think that any move to Mercedes in dependent on what Michael Schumacher decides (Rosberg has finished infront of Schumacher 'once' this year).

A couple of observations on several of the comments.
There is a good chance Lewis will go, and I suspect he will do well at Mercedes.
Jenson and McLaren will do just fine without him, and they know it.
McLaren's lack of a Plan B does not matter, as every driver on the grid will move heaven and earth to get into the McLaren team.
Kimi remains a good bet, if the Lotus continues to fade.
Rubens' set up skills did NOT win Jenson a championship, just as they are currently NOT enabling Rubens to win in Indycar.
No one has mentioned what Rosberg will think of his "friend" having undisputed number one status.

"undervaluing his image..."

PWAAAHAHAHA!!!!! ALL he cares about... Wanting to look like a superstar!
Honestly, if he is only worried about cash and his image, by all means, PLEASE LEAVE!!!

i Can't wait to see who replaces him.

Comm, for a unbalanced person he is sure driving well with two poles and two wins in the last three races and who knows what would have happened at Spa if not for a wrong decision regards a rear wing, but must agree it looks like the Hammi & Ron Dennis father and son affair is over.

blublz, is that your opinion? I thought the main consensus is that Mclaren are offering him less than his present contract. I was also reading Bild the German paper who are saying Schumi will get a 1+1 yearly extension of his contract. I find it hard to believe Lewis would hold up negotiations by wanting No1 status over Jenson at Mclaren.

What is the hype about DiResta? I don't think he is as fast a driver at all compared to Perez/Kobayashi or Nico Rosberg or Maldonado or even Kovalainen. I would pick Kovalainen or Nico Rosberg over DiResta for McL.

Also, Button can only drive when he has the perfect setup. That isnt' driving skills. That is the effort of the engineers. Button is just a good driver, not spectacular and OVERRATES himself big time. Look how he fell back in the second half of the 2008 season when the competition caught up with BRawn.

I think Alonso, Hamilton, Raikonnen are the top drivers on the track now. Vettel, Button, Webber, Perez, DiResta, MS the rest.

@Lewis The Great" ... is it me, or are you copying "the badman's" comments?

This is especially relevant as you are criticizing someone for trying to be Taipan ... can you see the irony? you might want to Google what that means... lol

It's this simple, all the Hamilton fan's seem about as loyal as the media is reporting Lewis to be ... He has lost quite a few fans over the years, including me if I'm being honest.

I think to for those that are real fans, that have followed the sport for decades, and really understand not only the politics, but the rumors that are typically very well placed to great effect, although this isn't one of them ... then we all know that Lewis wont be going anywhere, and that pi**es me off ...

For one, Rosberg in equal machinery will certainly show us all just how good Hamilton is (or is not) ... but we wont get to see this because Hamilton will have to accept his plan has backfired and will remain at McLaren ... Shame ... because I adore 50% of that team!

Most of the comments here has very little to do with f1 as a sport but rather personality issues. Lewis will be a free agent at the end of the season and naturally will test the market. He has served his current employer well and continue to so. If he chooses to leave,it will based on reason's better known to him and those around him.I will continue to follow his progress as a race car driver regardless of his team colors..
