Hamilton looks to end McLaren career in style despite helmet controversy

Lewis Hamilton is hoping for an "epic" finish to his McLaren career in Brazil, but has generated more controversy after the team forced him to remove an offensive "H.A.M" logo from his helmet in Austin. The man he beat in Texas, Sebastian Vettel, has come under fire himself, with Jacques Villeneuve saying he "reacts like a child", and Vettel's unlikely backgammon partner Bernie Ecclestone claiming he "lacks a little charisma".

It's going to be mega-emotional leaving McLaren on Sunday, I'm hoping we can make it epic guys.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
While the McLaren Group wish Lewis the best for his future, having nurtured, funded, and supported his entire career, we hope he will realise he has made an awful decision and will quickly regret his awful mistake next season.

No frickin way Martin, I'll get to do lots of more awesome stuff at Mercedes, Simon said so. It was mega-uncool of the team to make me remove the H.A.M logo from my helmet in Austin.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
The McLaren group have shown extreme patience with some of Lewis' poor judgement calls this season, but in light of recent FIA warnings we cannot condone the placement of anything obscene on drivers helmets.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Well done again Hamilton, your talent for generating bad publicity is only rivaled by the BBC news department. By the way please enlighten us as to the actual meaning of H.A.M, I presume it wasn't a reference to cured meats.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
It's just a phrase me and my music homies use Nando, it means "Hard As a Motherf**ker". It's way frickin ridiculous that I had to cover it up with tape, I mean WTF. Is it cause I is bl....
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Bl...indingly stupid. It might be better if McLaren taped up your mouth rather than your helmet.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
Ooh Fernando, you can cure my meat anytime. Taping my mouth is optional, but I'll definitely be H.A.M if anyone wants to place anything obscene on my helmet.

Stupid idiot cucumber guy ruined my race.
Horner   Christian Horner
Calm down Seb, Adrian and I have discussed it and we are investigating the possibility that Karthikeyan was working on orders from our enemies. We still have to believe that the seven points this latest conspiracy cost us will not be significant. You won the Constructor's Title for us again. Faaaaantastic!
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Yes! That is what I am talking about. I am the best. Yabba-dabba-doooooooooooo!
wibbah   Mark Webber
Er, Christian mate, I reckon I played a fair dinkum part in us winning a third consecutive Constructors title.
Horner   Christian Horner
As the official FIA results show Mark, only one Red Bull scored points in Austin. Also, if perfect Seb did not have two non-finishes earlier in the season through no fault of his own, he would almost have enough points to win the Constructors outright himself. Furthermore we believe that points were denied Seb this season by the sister car, at Monaco for example. In fact Mark, you could say you almost cost us the constructor's title.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Crikey, I drove a bonza race to win in Monaco, and it's not my flamin fault the bloody alternator threw a strop.
Horner   Christian Horner
Rest assured Mark, as your rolling contract means our relationship will endure one more season, you are a valued support to Seb. On that point, Adrian actually spotted a potential fault with Seb's alternator just by looking at it on Sunday, so luckily we were able to swap a healthy alternator from the sister car before the race. Sadly, our strict adherence to the Resource Restriction Agreement precluded us from unpacking a spare alternator for the second Red Bull.
Bernie   Bernie Ecclestone
I don't know what we're going to do when you're gone Michael, all we're left with is a bunch of spoiled brats isn't it. That young lad Vettel is a good sport for a game of backgammon, but he's got the charisma of a paper bag. He needs to get some muck on him doesn't he, maybe a sex scandal or drive into Fernando to win the title, get a few proper headlines.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
Controversial Jacques is going to stick his neck on the line and add to Bernie's comment by saying that Vettel's behaviour can possibly verge at times on what one might term childish. Michael and I were really controversial and were real men, these modern drivers need to grow some balls.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well shit-for-brains, you really need to grow some hair. We don't need a lesson in maturity from a gimp who learned Spa on a Playstation. By the way, you might want to hear how that album of yours, despite being something Chesney Hawkes would be embarrassed by, is bringing peace to the planet.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
Well Michael, while "Private Paradise" was essentially a personal journey exploring my deepest emotions, I always knew it had the potential to move people to set their differences aside.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Then you'll be delighted to hear the ceasefire in Gaza came about because the Israeli's and Palestinians finally found something they hate more than each other... your music. They're shipping a container of your CD's out there so they can both fire rockets at it. Congratulations twathead.
