Had to happen eventually, Ron Dennis wouldnt stick with any driver who thought he was bigger than the team. I hope Merc get Niki Lauda or Michael Schumacher to buffer LH from the press during GP weekends, he may go on to fulfill his potential with either in his corner.

whitmarsh drove lewis out of mclaren, but he will regret it.you could see it in his body language every time lewis did well! he didn't like it one bit. mclaren have only won one title in the last 11 seasons and that was lewis's wdc, some record.

My thoughts are:
LH shouting down the radio 'who's f...g idea was this' etc. when things go wrong.
How will RB deal with such an immature driver - for his sake i hope LH has grown up and learned whilst at McL.

Second though is... i am sad to anticipate MS to leave the sport as a driver. With all his faults, his unnecessary errors, i've enjoyed his 2012 resurgance in hope of his 92 podium...eventually. But that will now never happen.

Lastly - If RB gets LH head in the right frame of mind, gets him to ignore the limelight and concentrate on F1, then he might be in with some strong seasons to come providing Merc can sort the car out.

Nico, you better put some warm clothes on, Lewis will not be the same challenge as Michael was....far tougher!

The man, the brand, Lewis Carl Hamilton! The whole F1 world is shaken and he will indeed go on to be a champion with the great Ross Brawn. Smart move: Great team principle, good team mate, great Mercedes brand and good money.
