Alonso only left McLaren because he couldnt get on with Hamilton and having a strong team mate that can beat him. I mean why leave McLaren for Renault that couldnt win races the following year while McLaren won the 2008 WC.

If Hamilton went to Ferrari, it will be fireworks again like in 2007 when these were together.

Alonso is like Schumacher who like and want a weak team mates and have all the glory.

Good to hear a different perspective from another former Maclaren driver, it could just be sour grapes,but what he's saying has a ring of truth to it .Alonso is certainly more happier at Ferrari than he ever was at Maclaren. So something to think about for Lewis Also a positive slant on the story instead of all the negative chatter that s going around .I say good luck Lewis to which ever team you then decide to go or stay with.Lets hope if you decide to go that maclaren will still help push you to win the championship because your there only driver that can do that this season.

People do forget that Hamilton really only won championship by default, last corner last lap. Whereas the year before he could have won easily, if not for fighting with Alonso. Now that Button has taken half the McLaren cake, it appears to be Hamilton who is unhappy with a competative team mate. Maybe He does need a change, to find out what life is like in the real world.
A spoilt child, Me thinks.

all Lewis needs is a performance clause for himself, if team fu**s up and gives him 5+ second pitstops, poor strategies, etc... he gets paid as if he won the race (bonus), that will stop the team from fu**ing it up.

i see crash left out the huge compliment alonso payed to lewis.coz during that interview alonso also said “I have said he is the only one capable of winning without having the best car. The others win if the car is good, and when it is not (good), they do not (win),” he said.

hamilton would be right to stay at mcclaren. not for loyality, but the way things have spanned out is that he now will only be moving for money matters which is not a ggod look at all. (eg: C.Ronaldo) good he may be elsewhere he we still have that label above he head saying 'money- grabber' two more years at mcclaren win a title then move on because 'you want a new challange'.
personally i think the biggest points in his contract dilema are that in the current climate mcclaren cant offer him more money and he's already on just under half of alonso's pay packet. that and he wants to keep his trophies. what driver wouldnt i think thats obsurd that if you do all the hard work and then your team take the trophy give em a replica they get the constructors trophy anyway.....
