Hamilton to sort McLaren future over summer break

Lewis Hamilton, currently managed by Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment, has revealed that he hopes to sort out his future during the upcoming F1 summer break. The 2008 champion, out of contract at the end of 2012, is believed to be weighing up his options, including Lotus, given McLaren's recent inconsistency, stating "I'm not that young any more.. I just need to make sure I'm winning. That''s what I exist for".

So winning is the whole purpose of your existence, I was starting to wonder.

I'm not getting any younger Nando. Nicole wants me to start using anti-getting-old stuff on my face. I've been totally super-loyal to McLaren since I was 13 years old.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Mmmm, I guess Dave Ryan can vouch for your unswerving loyalty...oh, wait a minute. By the way, I hear you're demanding that you keep all your trophies when the McLaren tradition has always been that the team, or rather Ron, gets to keep them.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I'm the one who drives the frickin cars, so I should get to keep all those mega-bling trophies. Yellow helmet plus McLaren equals natural winner.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Even your hero Ayrton Senna had to give up his trophies, as did Alain Prost, Mika Hakkinen, and my good self. Obviously you're more special than the rest of us combined. Good luck with telling Ron.

They're mine all mine. Third place gongs are for beer, Second place cups are for Johnnie Walker, and the Winning Trophies see nothing less than Blue Nun. The last time a trophy got away was when Alain threw one to the crowd in '89 to piss me off, he's still buying me brandy to make up for it.

Excusez moi monsieur, ou est Le Centre de George Pompidou?
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
What the frick is that guy's trip? I'm glad you're my Prost Nando, Senna's Prost is way too whacko, and he's totally not young.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I don't think Alain will recover until somebody makes a blatantly one-sided documentary and calls it "Prost". By the way Hamilton, if they make a documentary on you I'm suggesting they call it "Prick".
diResta   Paul di Resta
I can understand Lewis' frustration in having a god-given talent, effectively without parallel, being compromised by the failings of both team and machinery. One factor which may weigh heavily in Lewis's decision is that I myself will undoubtedly be a shoe-in at one of the big teams, thus limiting the available seats for others seeking to switch.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
You definitely need a shoe-in somewhere Di Resta. By the way I heard you parted company with your manager, a certain Anthony Hamilton.
diResta   Paul di Resta
I don't think it's remiss of me to say that sometimes the magnitude of a certain person's talent gathers such momentum as to make that superstar, in effect, unmanageable. I see a manager as I do my team, simply a support structure to allow me to continue my meteoric ascent to immortality.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
That makes two drivers on the grid who have dumped Mr. Hamilton as their manager, the other being his son. Perhaps you could ask Lewis for advice on how to stall your career through poor management chioces.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
You totally need to get with Simon Fuller now Paul, I can get my people to talk to Simon's people to talk to your people. He knows loads of cool people, like the Spice Girls, and Will Young. We'll have mega parties in the pits.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Can't go wrong there Di Resta. For an example of the Fuller-effect check out Hamiltons GQ photo-shoot. In the near future you too might look like the love-child of Papa Smurf and Zsa-Zsa Gabor.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Since Lotus got a mention there, I'm hearing some scary stories that a former Renault / Lotus / whatever driver has been shooting his gob off about how he's going to kick everyone's arse.

Mines friends have powers, much powers to make reals mine visions.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Little word of advice, first try getting within 0.3 s of your teammate in qualifying, and then try keeping your steering column attached to the car. I'll watch my backside on the numerous occasions I'll be lapping you next weekend.
VitalyForHire   Vitaly Petrov
Vitalys uses moneys to get back to tops, then crushes mines enemies and kicks the asses.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Sure thing Petrov, the day I see you back at the front of the grid is the day Gary Glitter gets a leading role in a Disney movie.
