taz. ferdi should also have won the wdc at macca, that is, if ron had not started racing AGAINST ferdi.

Wow the same ferdi that wanted Lewis's car short fuelled? Something Whitmarsh did last year at Silverstone. I don't buy that rubbish, Fernando wanted to turn Lewis into a version of Massa.

I am both a long term McLaren fan as well as a Lewis fan.
Lewis is a real loss for McLaren. It is 100% down to poor leadership from Martin Whitmarshe who saw the tabloid direction and opportunistically used Lewis as a lightening rod to hide weak leadership skills.
Now Whitmarsh talks about Perez as the one to bring championships to McLaren, so Jenson is going to be the next to be used, especially as he cannot set up a car designed to McLarens philosophy of a stiff front end. That said, I wish McLaren, Perez (the new star) and JB (the new lightening rod) all the best luck for 2013.

As for Lewis, keep doing what you do, the sun will only get brighter, Mercedes fought hard for you (money, no barrier) because of your simulator, feedback and set up skills - go and deliver this winter.

@Mark

Your claim that Lewis and his dad ran to the stewards to report Alonso's misdemeanour is a bit of a stretch.
Firstly, drivers and parents cannot approach the stewards, ONLY team bosses can. Secondly, the stewards can see the pit lane quite clearly and they saw Alonso deliberately screw Lewis qualifying. Thirdly, from Ron Dennis own mouth, Alonso started blackmailling McLaren with his own emails to Pedro De La Rosa about Ferarri details. Fernando kept threathening to go to the FIA with his own emails. Now Ron has an armour plated backbone and wasn't going to be blackmailled, so he picked up the phone to Mad Max and informed the FIA that Alonso and Pedro had emails that contained Ferarri design details. That is the incontrovertible fact.

But Ron was right. After the Hungarian race, when he made the comment, Fernando beat Hamilton in every race (except for the retirement in China).

Losing the constructor points for Hungary (for lying) was bad enough but it didn't matter at the end of the day as McLaren lost the WCC that year with 0 points because of spygate. Well done Ron...

No Mclaren F1 for poor old Lewis then, he'll have to make do with his Zonda, which matches his personality better, blingier, plasticky and gauche. I hope he never sets foot in MTC again, when he tweeted the teams info he showed exactly how little he valued the team, he's not a team player, he's a media obsessed egotist and its a great day knowing he wont be back to sow more seeds of discord. Mclaren are better off without Lewis Hamilton.

You mean the same that asked him to lie in Australia 2009 or the one that lied in Barcelona.

quade. at the time, lulus dad was his manager, and had every right to go to the stewards. and as for ferdi screwing lulu? that was because lulu ignored team instructions to try and put ferdi on the back foot. finally, why do you think that fia put in an observer to the macca garage? it was to ensure that ferdi was not being handicapped.

you need to brush up on your f1 history.
