Not matter what the final consequences are Lewis should leave this team, their incompetence can't be fix. They will continue to damage and destroy their own racers chances of winning anything.
In my opinion even if it's mean leaving the sport for one year, he should leave that team. Nobody have achieve anything great without taking any chances.

wheeltowheel - when did Alonso show any emails or texts the FIA? What happened was that he told Ron Dennis that he was going to blow the whistle and RD went to the FIA on his own to limit the damage of Alonso doing so. It is funny that you guys still think that Alonso's problems were with Lewis when in reality they were with the team management not supporting him. I am not sure why there is a need to manufacture some type of rivalry that was not there. Perhaps it is to spin your story of Alonso being the bad guy.

The hatred of Alonso held against Hamilton was told in Bernie's book, It reveals the wicked ways Alonso followed to beat the rookie. The book stated that the Spaniard tried to convince the McLaren team boss, Ron Dennis, to sabotage Hamilton's car to ensure it ran out of fuel. It further confirmed that Alonso tried really hard to blackmail Dennis into following team orders, making him the team's No.1 driver. However, Hamilton performed so brilliantly in his debut season that the Dennis was never really convinced. The book further discloses that Alonso gave his boss an ultimatum ahead of the 2007 Hungarian Grand Prix. It is reported that Dennis was threatened by the double championship winner that his over incriminating emails will be forwarded to Federation Internationale de l Automobile if the demands were not fulfilled.

Everyone saying Nando is playing mind games, just sit down. Don't be so ridiculous. As long as Nando is winning the WDC, Nando couldn't give less of a crap about where Hammy is next season as long as they aren't team mates, which won't happen for various reasons.

1) Hammy although he isn't as 'good' as Alonso, he is probably slightly faster and would therefore be a thorn in Nando's (and Ferrari's) side which would have a similar
effect on their performance as 2007. championships would be lost.

2) Ferrari don't want someone who is aspiring to take it to Nando. They want a faster version of Massa - someone with experience but not overly fast (someone like Kovalainen)

3) one of the two reasons Hammy is looking to move is he wants a bigger paycheck. Ferrari already pay around 40m a year for Nando. So they won't be won't want to fund another 20m plus driver (again, Kovalainen is an option)

4) Nando and Hammy respect eachother enormously and therefore respect eachothers personal spac

and Ferrari is very much Nando's personal space, his team, not anyone else's.
For those reasons, Hammy to Merc on equal terms with Nico, Kovalainen with mclaren, and MSC will spend his last year with Ferrari and retire 'at home' with Nando - who'd have dreamed that in 2006? And then Vettel will take MSC's place in 2014. It all fits together like a jigsaw!!

i think hamilton feels frustrated, firstly how the maclaren team fails acknowledge lewis as the number 1 driver in the team, secondly the strategies and the pit stops are really really crap by maclaren. His being paid half the amount alonso on and his risking his life every time his on the fields. Lets be honest which other driver can replace lewis vettel would go to maclaren as he wants to go ferrari, no alonso kimi might, kubica is a another driver but who knwos if he is the same. what maclrean will if lewis leaves is get de rista who hasnt impressed but you know the BBC they love de rista

But Fj, when Kovalainen was at McL he was effectively still a rookie, and at Renault he WAS a rookie and let's face it, any rookie regardless of how good, was going to be obliterated by Alonso. Driving for Lotus for 3 years has really improved him. He's faster and more consistent than he was, and generally a nice rounded driver who wouldn't be too much hassle for Nando but could still haul a lot of points. Ideal number 2 fezza driver.
