Even if Lewis gas blundered (I doubt) in leaving McLaren, he is not alone to be blamed. May be he was pushed into it. I've not heard of a single ex-McLaren driver praising Ron (does Mika praise him?). Is there a hint in that?

Alonso takes a dig at McLaren's inability to win WCC and supports Lewis's move to Mercedes.

This is probably

Mclaren does have a very corporate style of functioning. They tend to keep drivers on a leash (anyone remember's Alonso's new hair cut from 2007?). Mika was probably fine with it as he was winning (or as DC might say, he was the preferred one). Kimi probably didn't care much about it either as long as he had a fast car. He just got tired of finishing 2nd. Jenson doesn't seem to be bothered by it either. He's probably just thankful that his career didn't end (back in 2008-09) and he still in a car capable of winning races (if not championships).

In short, their philosophy seems like - we pay you to drive. We don't want you to be in news for any other reason.

Lewis is back on twitter, blames phone for the hiatus.

You wont know what will happen on the RACEDAY tomorrow, his car is slower than Button, his radio conversation is one-sided, spirits low etc., etc

Count out lewis for the WDC till another 5 years.

Mclaren will give their NEW No.1 driver Jenson the best car for the next few races.

Button will get the best car that's common sense and business. I would have done the same if I was Mclaren.

But count out lewis for 5 years, thats a bit harsh aint it? Something this F1 season has shown is unpredictability and look at Alonso leading with a car that cannot be called the best car on track.

I wish Hamiltion the best and hope he can put critics where they belong (Always on the other side).

Look at the tweet. It seems that the relation between Lewis and McLaren is very bitter, probably communication has broken down. Lewis will endure very tough remaining races this year. He was gracious enough to admit that his pace dropped in Q3 because the setup was changed as suggested by him, not the team.

Lewis is not expecting to win WDC or even races in 2013. He has long term goals.

Many sites had reported that Jenson unfollowed and then corrected. Lewis did the same mistake many days later! He needs to spend more time reading F1 news as well ;-)

Could you post some of those sites here?

Either way, why can't he just concentrate on driving part? He would be so much better without all this non-sense.

I had read about this on f1fanatic.co.uk before Lewis's flip-flop.
