'Mixed emotions' for Hamilton in McLaren finale

"Coming across here, this finish line, for the last time with the team 'til who knows when, is sad in many ways," he agreed. "But its also a beautiful thing in many ways as well because I'm going to start a new chapter in my life."

"It's been a good weekend so far. Grateful to be able to put the car on the front row and to have the last one-two in qualifying with Jenson in the same team," he said on Saturday. "Just a fantastic job by the team. So grateful for all the opportunities they've given me. I hope that we can turn it into something really positive."

The lights go out for the race at 2pm local time, 4pm GMT, with the forecasts predicting anything from a dry race to torrential rain and showers in between, beaning that Hamilton's finale with McLaren could prove to be an exciting, eventful and memorable occasion for all concerned.

Maybe he wanted to try something different? Maybe there are things we dont know about. I dunno. Unfortunately you'll never know Taipan because.. 1. You are not him. 2. The closest you get to F1 is commenting this website.

Hammy dont worry you would be fine, you were the only one who brought home their only title in 14 seasons, despite having Coultard, Kimi, Montoya, Alonso, Heikki and Button on their books.
