    It was just a thought I had and now a couple days later I see this. Perez could be 2013 WDC in a McLaren.

    It has happened


    Hamilton signs three-year Merc deal | Planet F1 | Formula One News


    Lewis Hamilton will race for Mercedes next season, replacing Michael Schumacher in what he is billing as a "fresh challenge."
    After months of speculation about his future, it was finally announced on Friday that Hamilton has called it quits on his 14-year association with McLaren, signing a long-term deal with rivals Mercedes.
    Hamilton has been with McLaren in some part since he was a 13-year-old karter and entered Formula One with the Woking team in 2007, winning the Drivers' Championship the following season.
    The Brit's results slumped since with Hamilton fighting for the crown but never quite getting there, prompting him to seek a "fresh challenge" elsewhere.
    "It is now time for me to take on a fresh challenge and I am very excited to begin a new chapter racing for the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team," said the 27-year-old.
    "Mercedes-Benz has such an incredible heritage in motorsport, along with a passion for winning which I share.
    "Together, we can grow and rise to this new challenge. I believe that I can help steer the Silver Arrows to the top and achieve our joint ambitions of winning the World Championships."
    Meanwhile, team boss Ross Brawn has hailed the "potential" that now waits Mercedes with Hamilton and Nico Rosberg flying the flag.
    "The arrival of a driver of Lewis' calibre is a testament to the standing of Mercedes-Benz in Formula One and I am proud that Lewis shares our vision and ambition for the success of the Silver Arrows," said the Brit.
    "I believe that the combination of Lewis and Nico will be the most dynamic and exciting pairing on the grid next year, and I am looking forward to what we can achieve together.
    "Over the past three years, we have been putting in place the foundations and building blocks that are needed to compete regularly for the World Championship.
    "Behind the scenes, we have assembled a team that is technically stronger, more experienced and better resourced, thanks to the support of Petronas and all of our loyal team partners.
    "The potential is now there to match any other team on the grid, which is the minimum standard for a Mercedes-Benz works team. Our task is now to translate that potential into on-track performance for next season and beyond."

    First time in a while I've been caught up with my DVR, so I'm finally checking in.



    Hamilton with Merc. is an interesting development. I don't follow all the drama, but it seems like a lot to throw away with McLaren, who by all rights had the car to be way in front in this championship. Too bad Alonso got to Ferrari first.

    I'm guessing when Shumi got the WTF?? message over the radio for his recent punt that was the end with them. Too bad - I hated to see that.

    Yes,the WTF message was maybe the strangest ever heard. Maybe from a Team boss to a rookie driver,but to Michael Schumacher? I guess it exposed Ross Brawn's frustration under his cool demeanor.

    And it was quite clear Hamilton had not been happy for a while.

    The reason Hamilton went to Merc is money. He is getting much more than McLaren originally offered.
    There is more going on here as we'll, McLaren might be losing Vodaphone and Sergio brings TelMex with him. Like Fernando brought Santander in 07.
    McLaren also restrict drivers outside sponsorship deals now Lewis is free to become the face of whomever he wants.

    And finally Monster energy (a Merc GP sponsor) was recently purchased by coke and they want to bring the fight to Red Bull but need a top driver to do so.

    Yes, had heard the speculation about Coke wanting to take the fight to Red Bull.

    What will happen to Schumacher? He hasn't said he'd retire for a second time. Anyone else think he might go back to Ferrari. It is silly season,so we can speculate.

    I'm pretty sure that wasn't Ross Brawn on the radio, it didn't sound like his voice. More likely Schumi's engineer. But I'd be sad to see him go again despite the mistakes he's made this year. Hopefully he'll find a drive elsewhere. But I suspect the rumours about him having a different role within a team are likely.

    Good luck with the immature Hamilton, Mercedes. I could not put up with a diva no matter how many races he won.

    I'll take a diva on pole over Britney sitting 6th on the grid and falling back in the opening laps. This is a good move for Hamilton despite what some say, and in 2014 he will have the best engine in a car with a clever interpretation of the rules. Ross Brawn is THE team principle you want and Merc has enough loot to take on the top three.

    I think that Esteban Gutierrez will end up in the sauber. Massa to Indycar. Schumi to Ferrari.
