@ tom cat

If Lewis had driven the best car and didnt win how come Alonso, Kovi and Button didnt win? or were they driving a replica to Lewis's car (may be a cylinder short of V8 )

Whilst not a Lewis fan, I hope he makes the move to Mercedes. With a potential change of driver at Ferrari as well it will do the sport good to see a shake up of drivers/teams.

Nakagoli Jenson started with McL in 2010, just over two and a half years ago, a 3 year deal, 8m GBP per year. He signed a new deal in October 2011 for 5 more years at 12m GBP per year.
mrfill Taipan XIX and Hamster are more worried about the money and his image. If image is so important, why does Hamster keep making such a global knob of himself every five minutes? He should be more worried about getting his hands on a title winning car. Pretty sure it won't be a Merc in 2013.
Taipan the Fernando comment was bloody funny wasn't it and your response to Badman Jose on logic. LMFAO.
Sorry Badman you walked right into that one

We need a shake up in 1 of the big teams next year and hopefully this will be it.

If Hamilton does move to Mercedes next year I wonder who would go because there is some talk starting to appear that it could be Rosberg even though he still has a contract.

To those that think Paul di Resta is not a fast driver then why did he manage to put a mid field car into 4th in qualifying at Monza? Also why has he beaten the likes of Vettel in the same car in smaller categories? I think some people's blind hatred towards people over shadow's their common sense. I for one think he is faster than Perez, so is Kobayashi. Perez is rubbish in qualifying but the current F1 suits his style so he saves the tyres well.

Even though I want to see di Resta go to McLaren, imagine what the "Iceman" Kimi Raikkonen could do in that Mclaren?

Liam, there was a story going around that Heikki's management team had visited Ferrari recently and other story's claiming that McLaren still valued Kimi so who knows what could happen.
If I had to put money on someone replacing Lulu I'd go with Di Resta, him signing up with Button's management team says quite a lot.
Insideline, talking of Jose walking into things, only a couple of weeks ago he was telling us that McLaren would be offering Lulu the best contract in the history of F1 because he is F1's "golden goose" I did tell him at the time that he would be offered a reduced contract, looks like I was right again Jose. More of a Lame Duck than Golden Goose eh?

They are all stories until the dotted line is signed. I would hold out as well. McLaren gaining all marketing rights to Lewis's brand is major money. MS gets his marketing rights from Merc and makes a ton of money on the side. I can only assume those speaking out their backside to be hourly workers and have no idea as to the process of signing a contract.

@Taipan I completely agree with your di Resta point. Signing with Jenson Button's management team will/should be a massive boost to his Formula 1 career and I'm sure they & Jenson will at least ask to get Paul into the team in Hamilton leaves.

I still think Paul di Resta has got a lot more to show in F1 than he already has.
