Lewis Hamilton move was about the future of Lewis
Hamilton. Look at mid season McLaren its not really
difficult to see why. For some reason best, answered buy
other F1 somebodies, they have a propensity for loosing
'really good' drivers. I point the finger at management, team
management. Some say bad move by Hamilton..Methinks
Lewis did the only thing he could do, given Mclaren history.
That scrip was written a long time ago.. Its happen again..

I think the move was about Jenson Button acheiving similar performance during the same time period, JB ingratiating himself with all members of the team, and JB being easier to manage. Ron told everyone in Canada (i think), 'a question of wether we (McLaren) employ him, not the other
way around'

@ blublz You're wearing rose colored glasses. It wasn't about money. It's all about the way u treat people. Mclaren has lost their way. Jenson "wolf in sheep's clothing" Button isn't who u think he is and it will all be revealed in time. It starts next year.
