Who on God's green earth dare guess what Lulu will say next?.
Normally a highly sought after driver is approached by a team offering a contract and or requesting a contract extension and not the other way round.

@107, and your point is??
Does it not show a sense of loyalty from him that he wants to stay amid stories of McLaren and Ferrari showing an interest. After all, and I am sure you were one of the people who criticised him from going to Merc in the first place (I am sure you said "for the money"), he trusted what they could offer, at the time it was a massive risk. Good on Hamilton to show this level of pride to race for Mercedes.

"There's a place for everyone..." Really? I thought there were a queue of guys racing in junior formula classes. Maybe they need a new Formula 2 and Formula 3 class, which provides a standardised feeder system for drivers, like MotGP. There really ought not to be a place for everyone in the pinnacle of motor racing. Mind you, I'm sure that Lewis was simply trying to be diplomatic. He doesn't believe that BS...surely!!!

Maybe it's a timing thing, but is his motivation to stay at Mercedes based on loyalty? Or, the fact that the car happens to be the best on the grid?

He looked strong early in the season but Nico seems to have the measure of him now.

I hope to see a few more straight fights this season without any mechanicals or duff pit-stops to cloud matters.
