clearly Paddy is aware of the fact that Lewis is able to extract speed from every piece of hardware he has given him and it excites him to work with Lewis...

Lastly, last year Ron Dennis said..."its Lewis who needs us, not the other way around"...i mean really? how arrogant?...i guess you are about find out if thats the case...

As a fan, there is nothing left for me at Mclaren, i am not going to set myself up for heartaches like a Liverpool supporter...

i am migrating to Mercedes...DONE!

Oh my God! That was one of the most pathetic Hamilton fanboy posts I've seen in a LONG time!


You write a post that spreads over two pages saying that McLaren have no hope now that Hamilton isn't there and and can only rely on comfort boy Button who can't set up a car to save himself. Yes, his 13th year in F1 and he can't set up a car.

I wonder who he copied in 2011 when he beat Hamilton by a bigger margin than Hamilton has ever beaten him. Obviously he didn't copy Hamilton's set-up as it appeared to keep putting Hamilton in the wall or up the chuff of another driver.

Yes, McLaren certainly don't have any hope with Button, I mean, what has he done since being team mates with Hamilton? I mean other than outscoring your messiah over their time as team mates?

You then have the irony to finish it with saying that McLaren is arrogant!

Oh my God, please stop, my sides are hurting from laughing so much!!

I really wonder if losing Paddy is like when Newey left Williams back in the 90s.

While I am a McL fan, and a JB fan, I really wonder how well they will do. I hope Goss will pull through. I see it as Merc is just going to call 2013 a wash and put all their efforts to get the jump on 2014. I feel McL should do the same esp with a new TD who probably can't do much to influence the 2013 car now. McL need to go on a mad recruiting spree get 2014 going ASAP

So Mclaren are putting all their faith in Perez, and Button has no idea how to set up a car ?. Where do some of you people come up with this stuff?.
So many experts who know Jack about what it takes to run an F1 team or what it takes to be an F1 driver.

Honda engines? They must have told Merc they didn't want to pay the high price for their engines. This would follow a pattern of holding their ground against employees and suppliers looking for more money.

Button is one of the all time great drivers. His drive in Canada to win after being plum last was the greatest ever f1 win. He will be winning races and pushing for the title this year. Lowe going will not affect mclaren as a whole they have been through this before many times. Watch and learn children
