Is that change not coming for 2014? I think coanda stays next year.

Lewis has got a seriously receding hair line. He needs a Rooney.

prove!

If he was to move I can only imagine he would go to a equal or arguably quicker team and at the
minute there isonly one.... Red Bull. Unless the Mercedes is drastically quicker this year I can't see
him going there.


In an ideal world, a driver moves from one competitive car to the next ... but a lot has to be said of a driver who moves to a team that needs taking by the scruff of the neck and made competitive. Arguably, such a move can separate the good drivers from the great ones. I would be intrigued as to how Lewis would handle such a situation.


Think he'll be a bit like Alonso when he moved back to Renault after his McLaren stint but not out shining his teamate to the same extent. Trundle around the midfield with the odd shinning performance.

That could be possible for sure, but I dont know why I have a gut feeling the merc will be good as the Lotus and Lewis will surprise alot of people :nod:

Thought some people here might appreciate the Hamilton vs. Button complete statistics from their tenure together. I think it's rather telling that we witnessed a rather grand pairing. Also that Hamilton will likely finish ahead if both cars make the finish line, but Button's slightly more likely to put it on the podium!

Outraced > Hamilton 32 - Button 26
Outraced when both finished > Hamilton 24 - Button 14
Wins > Hamilton 10 - Button 8
Outqualified > Hamilton 40 - Button Button 18
Podiums > Button 25 - Hamilton 22
Points > Button 672 - Hamilton 657
WDC Avg. > Button 4 - Hamilton 4.3
Times finished ahead in WDC > Hamilton 2 - Button 1

A little something that might put a smile on the faces of Lewis fans.

"...as for strongest opponent, who is strongest driver? My answer is Hamilton. It was true last year, it was true this year [...] it is a personal opinion, not political, not to make people think something [...] who is the one you have to keep an eye on? It is Hamilton - and it will still be Hamilton next year."

IMo it's Alonsos honest opinion, he repeats it again & again. Like he said it's no politics and nothing to make poeple think something

Whilst I'm of the opinion that it makes sense for Fred to want to belittle or unsettle Vettel, and that by praising Lewis he's in effect also praising himself considering how evenly matched they were at Macca, I actually agree that this is his honest opinion. It seems as if both biased and unbiased fans and pundits also hold a similar opinion, so it makes sense.

Toto Wolff has now confirmed his move to Mercedes management as a replacement to Norbet Haug. Mercedes are really making some good changes. 2013 might be the year the silver arrows stand out.
