I think Lewis will bring much to the team. Like him or not, if he is slow we will all know it is the car.
And I do think that for Mercedes to replace MS, they had to recruit Lewis, Seb, or Fernando, and the latter two were going nowhere.
Finally, Lewis really is every bit a Mercedes lad as much as he is a McLaren guy. I am a little surprised at the Perez decision. I think he is fast but i thought Ferrari would have done mor to prevent this move.

sorry to say but everything in life has a finite time, that's just how nature works. i honestly believe that ross brawn's time has come and gone and merc gp need some new blood, with new ideas to take the team in a different direction. like the saying goes, "only a fool repeatedly does the same things and expects a different result."
the changes at williams shows how new ideas can inject new impetus into a team and improve performance. perhaps merc should do likewise.

Aim not the best to talck about Mercedes performance because i only wach 2 races this year but if you guys say that they are bad i think its only because of bad luck.. Guys like Brawn and names like Mercedes will never get thinghs to much wrong 4sure they can have problems but will not be 4ever.. Mclaren Mercedes can be a very very good Team but like the name says is only a Team, Mercedes is pure Manufactor big deal if they are with the ambition of beeing the best i would not argue with this guys.. I think is great move from hamilton i bealive he will not regrete and Mercedes having riders like him that are expensive but with talente to be Champion i think they will not waste there chance.. All i can say is wach out for 2013.. I will try to follow all races next year

Mercedes are throwing money at a problem which won't be solved with a new driver, and an extremely volatile one no less. Who better to have in your team than MSC, the man who turned Ferrari into a powerhouse. Mercedes disgust me with this deal...

Good luck Ross. You will need it.
Your track record in F1 is second to none, so I guess if anyone can control Hamilton and get the best out of him, it is you. It is going to be very interesting to watch.

This reminds me of when Jacques Villeneuve moved over to BAR Honda. Only difference is that Mercedes continues to have such a strong engine to fight with Renault and Ferrari. Only time will tell if Lewis made the right decision. McLaren made a fantastic move to get Perez. Ferrari blew it. I wonder though that because Schumacher was so non commital to Mercedes that maybe he's hoping for Massa to get canned so he can go back to Ferarri....hmmmm.

Funny move when MS has been beating Nico in quali more times than not and apart from 2 mistakes his season points tally has been destoryed by merc team in either pits or car . LH will decimate Nico next year im afraid just my opinion

Signing Lewis is good, but it was total idiocy replacing Schumi with him. Why not replace Rosberg with Lewis and have a partnership of Lewis and Schumi. Replacing Schumi and not Rosberg was one of the worst decisions that any team can.
