Sorry you didn't get to hand over that pink slip personally. Maybe sometime in the future someone will hand you one..

Pity Lewis couldn't quite get it on the front row just to mix it up that little bit more. But third place is good and with a good start he can be right up there. I think with the apparent speed advantage on full tanks, McLaren and Ferrari will have to pounce right at the start to have any chance tomorrow, cos when the fuel burns off those Red Bull's will be cruising off into the distance.

Did you see that all you Lewis fans? That was a self proclaimed Jenson fan showing support for your hero. It's a pity that most of you aren't big enough to do the same in reverse, but that would be asking for you to show some maturity, god forbid!

Hamilton missed out on long high fuel runs in practice that will surely hurt him in the race.- Liam48

i thought when lewis set fastest time in fp1 on his 23 lap then bettered it on his 26th lap on same tyres was not a bad effort - kiwibob

Jensen Button is now in charge of set up at McLaren... And it shows!
All the lock ups that plagued his McLaren when he was in the dumps this year are back with a vengeance on both cars.
Lewis has been locked out of the factory and technical discussions because he is leaving, so there's no one to blame with vitriol now when someone else sneezes.
Its what happens when a team deliberately takes takes backward steps to play to cider inspired tabloid views (even though the tabloid audience are not McLarens target market). Talk of being confused!

Where is the "daft Lewis cannot set up car" mob?
What is happening at McLaren now is so shocking its almost comical. Even the Marusia's weren't locking up the way the McLarens were. How they are going to finish a race like that without using up a 100 sets of tyres is anyones guess.
Well! Now there is no Lewis to turn to anymore for solutions, these all he does is turn up for work to drive the car. As was on the news from both himself and Jensen, he is barred from helping with or accessing technical work at McLaren.

lulumerc/rgb etc. did you not realise that after three laps the car would be lighter. further, quite a number of cars were putting in a fast lap, then cooling the tyres and putting in another faster lap. it was not just your lulu. check timing on f1.com.

Quade "Now there is no Lewis to turn to for answers"

I'm sure the McLaren engineers will be wondering how to design next years car now that they don't have Lulu Da Vinci to rely on. I really have to wonder why McLaren have won so little over the last 6 years when they've had Lulu, the greatest driver, designer, engineer strategist, etc on their books.

Maybe it's because he's none of the above?
