POLL: Should Lewis Hamilton leave McLaren?

Speculation about Lewis Hamilton and whether or not he will remain with McLaren at the end of this season has been rampant of late. But what decision do you think the 2008 F1 world champion should make? To submit your vote, simply, CLICK HERE...

Lewis Hamilton's future currently remains uncertain and while there were reports on Friday that it could all be decided by Singapore, it remains to be seen whether he will stay with McLaren or opt to move to Mercedes or maybe even elsewhere...

Ahead of the recent Italian Grand Prix, former team boss-turned-BBC analyst Eddie Jordan fuelled speculation of a pending move, when he said a deal between Hamilton and Mercedes could be 'imminent'. Fernando Alonso has also since come out and said his rival is right to be considering leaving McLaren [see separate story - HERE], but most in the paddock still reckon he is likely to stay put, a view shared by the bookmakers.

Indeed William Hill have cut the odds of Hamilton moving on after punters rushed to back him to stay where he is. Offered at 17/20 on Friday, a concentrated number of punters based in the South of England were placing bets of up to £500 on Hamilton still being at McLaren next season. The odds have now been slashed to 1/2. He is 6/4 to be at Mercedes next season and 10/1 to join any other team.

“A large percentage of the bets we took were within a 100km radius of McLaren's Woking base and so we think that there is now a very real possibility that Lewis will still be there come the start of next season,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

But what do you think Lewis should do?

Lets ask the same question a different way ... Should McLaren keep Hamilton? Your question makes it appear that it's his decision ... which it isn't! ... well, after recent antics, less than half the equation!

A lot of people will have an opinion about the question in this poll, some for staying some for not, but as for what will happen they will all have to wait for the outcome. This question/poll doesn’t really fit my opinion of what should have been and what should be, my opinion of what should have been is still the same as stated on this forum (mclaren should have fired Lulu right there and then for breaching confidential team information, there is no other way about it for me), about if him should stay or not, my opinion is he should leave now that things have got to this point.
