I'd like to see an interview with MW where he thanks LH for the wins and WDC he brought to McLaren. I'd also like to see an interview with LH where he thanks McLaren and MW/RD for their fantastic efforts in giving him a car that allowed him to take a WDC and win many other GPs, despite not always starting the season with a winning car (- impressive and a huge testament to the team). But so much negativity and criticism atm. Why not accept that they are going their separate ways at the end of a contract, which either party was perfectly entitled to do given the contract was coming to an end, and just wish each other every success for the future with some recognition of the past?
The very fact that Martin Whitmarsh feels the need to keep banging on about it is evidence that he still feels bitter about it. I'd be batting those questions away by saying what's done is done, we can't turn the clock back, we wish Lewis Hamilton all the best for the future and rest assured we will be fighting for wins next year and trying to beat him. Then, next time the quesion is asked, he just bats it away agan and says it's closed and he's said all he wants to say....
I still reckon that on the first working day after the last GP when McLaren sat down to review the race a number of the team thought what had they done in not keeping LH given the relatively poor performance of Button and Perez in the last race and a number of other recent races to boot.
This will run and run but I'm disappointed. Hamilton has been good for McLaren and McLaren has been good for Hamilton. Well done both and let's leave it there and hope that both go on to to enjoy future success.
