I agree with Sunny that Lewis was pushed rather than that he jumped. The talking to other teams was probably meant as a bargaining tool. After the tweeting incident it is hard to believe that McLaren would have kept him even at a reduced fee. If McLaren had been serious about keeping him they would not have had Perez already signed the same day that Lewis announced that he was leaving. Clearly the timing of the Perez announcement showed that McLaren had already made their decision.
