Vettel is rumored to have signed with Ferrari for 2014 and on. If that's the case, it leaves Perez open for a move outside Ferrari's orbit

I cannot see that pair together at Ferrari. I dont think the rumor has merit.

Big mistake for Lewis to go to Mercedes, IMO.

If he doesn't perform, he can moan about the car to the papers. I think Mercedes has been horribly inconsistent which is strange because Button had a pretty reliable car under the Brawn banner.

I just read the Hamilton-Mercedes rumor.

I absolutely hate the notion of Hamilton at Mercedes. Hate it.

Por que??!

Going to Merc is like taking 20 steps back! McLaren can give him wins that Merc can't even come close to.

This is what happens when you sign up Mr. Pop Idol as your manager.

Someone on an f1 website reminded me of Schumacher's move to Ferrari in 1996. The team was incredibly inconsistent for many years. Now, today's Hamilton has not shown the leadership or strength of Schumacher circa 1995 but maybe that's what's he'd be aiming for with a move. Or maybe he just wants a change and more control over his image (more personal sponsorship, more money.

Also, with the 2014 engine changes, there's expected to be a big advantage for teams with works engine deals. Mercedes, Ferrari and Renault lead team (presumably Red Bull) would be the ideal places to be in that case.

I don't see why Mercedes will have much of an advantage with the engine. Mercedes will provide the whole powertrain to McLaren, and then the car will be designed around it. Ferrari has shown no particular benefit from having everything in-house since they lost the advantage of unlimited testing at their own track. Red Bull's advantage is Adrian Newey, not being the lead Renault team.

Lewis should stay at McLaren. It could work out at Mercedes, but there's nothing to suggest it will.

A sad day for F1. If you haven't read his book, I recommend it.

I''ve always meant to read his book so I'll add that to my Amazon shopping list.

Fucking McLaren transmission. Guy is unlucky.
post #343 of 1240
I think he must have signed for Mercedes, and now Macca are intent on ensuring he doesn't take the #1 with him. biggrin.gif

Seriously, though, that radio transmission after it blew makes it sound like they had their doubts about the transmission before the race and were taking a chance to go after the win.

If Lewis switched to Mercedes he may begin to forget how to warm up his brakes before the restart facepalm.gif
