Hamilton to ditch R1.2bn deal?

2012-06-01 12:12

EAGER TO WIN: Lewis Hamilton could ditch a R255-million contract for 2013 in favour of greener pastures, at least according one F1 commentator.

Lewis Hamilton may already have decided to quit McLaren, according to French TF1 television commentator Jean-Louis Moncet.

It emerged recently that McLaren has offered the 2008 World champion, whose current contract will end in 2012, more than R258-million a season to stay at the British team for five more years (R1.2-billion).

Moncet said "one of my best sources" was reporting that Hamilton had effectively decided to leave McLaren at the end of 2012 "and even earlier if the situation does not improve".


British newspapers reported after the Monaco GP that Hamilton was angry and  insisting "the team definitely has some work to do" to cut out errors.

Moncet said there had been "serious contact between McLaren and Paul di Resta", the rising Force India driver who, ironically, is managed by Hamilton's father Anthony.

Referring to the speculation surrounding Hamilton, former driver, manager and British commentator Martin Brundle noted: "He's comfortable at McLaren, but will he fancy a bit of fresh oxygen by going somewhere else? I imagine he's weighing that all up at the moment."
