Mercedes have had the opportunity to win atleast one more race this year (Monaco), but because of Schumi's poor judgement (and possibly age) causing so many penalties, it's robbed them of doing better.

I wasn't a fan of him returning tbh. I was and still am of the opinion, he had his shot in F1 and people were looking at his comeback through rose tinted glasses. They forget the engineers who built him championship winning cars, the FIA giving Ferrari special treatment for so many years and the cheating that went on to get him ahead of the rest.

While I'm not a fan of Lewis anymore (can't stand his ego), he is a great driver and he will thrive at a new challenge, no doubt bringing the team wins where they wouldn't normally get.

@kiwi bob
You make a good point. Lewis will want to first take care of his team mate, but Ross needs to deliver Lewis a car that works as well as the McLaren did in quali last weekend, because he had the car dialed in,and hard to beat. I could think of nothing better than he parking the car on the first two rows of the grid next year, then it would be game on...my opinion only.

you can't think of lewis as just another driver. you have to see him as an engineering resource. he is arguably the fastest guy in F1 right now. only alonso and vettel are close and neither of them can grind the last 10th out of a car... and that is the key. when lewis gets out of the car , that's as fast as the car can go and that is a valuable piece of information in this day of " no testing" . neither shumacher nor rossberg can do that... both mclaren and hamilton have made a mistake parting ways but mclaren has made the worse... hamilton will suffer with bad cars that take time to get better. mclaren will suffer with drivers that can never go as fast as the cars can go and simply rely on strategy for succcess.

I just don't see how people can even begin to doubt the Mercedes team now. They have one of the best drivers on the grid some of the best designers and one of the biggest budgets.

Remember mercedes bought the scraps of the honda lay-off that was brawn, it really was in a dire mess. I hope they can provide Lewis with a stable car with good enough downforce - as that's all lulu needs.

Well I agree with the above, I certainly hope Ross has had good advice recently on his colestrole levels. I think stressfull times are approaching the team. They now have a born winner with 'Raw Talent' to please in the team.

Still not quite sure what that talent is though.

Oh so now, they must deliver? Hahaha. These jokers have been saying it for years...

Merc having been building crap cars that fall apart for Schumi for 3 years, now they get rid of him...

If it wasn't poor strategy, it was wheel nuts failling off (more than once), slow pit stops, DRS stuck open, DRS not working, hydralics failures, KERS malfunctions, losing drive in multiple races...

Ridiculous, with Hamilton all this won't change.

It's a joke of a team going nowhere in F1.

I'm definately not supporting them next season

Not sure about next season but lets hope the 2014 car delivers, with the new regs. surprised Lewis didn't wait a year before joining mercedes as mclaren is looking strong again but i wish him luck and he'll learn so much under Brawn. And he will be away from that awful Politically correct Mclaren PR machine..!!!
