Controlled aggression… Nothing sums up Lewis Hamilton more than his aggressive driving style. This is what sets him apart in the world of racing and his 55 overtakes for the season tells it all. Who would have thought that a 10-year-old kid lining up for Ron Dennis’ autograph, McLaren’s Executive Chairman and former F1 team principal, would one day be offered a Formula One contract 12 years later? From a simple radio-controlled car to karting at the local circuit, this boy racer has simply sped on to pursue his dreams.
Despite being connected with team McLaren since he was 13, signing with the Young Driver Support Program, Hamilton has decided to part ways and sign a three-year deal with Mercedes instead, replacing the great Michael Schumacher. Yes, it seems as if the 27-year-old has made an illogical move – a move that even have the experts and analysts saying that it is just sheer madness.
It was clearly a no-brainer for us onlookers to have noticed that something wasn’t right while he was standing on the podium after winning at Monza. For those of you keeping track, McLaren hasn’t really taken care of their star racer in instances where it mattered most. Like in Bahrain, where he was delayed twice in the pit by a guy who couldn’t screw back on the wheel nuts. Or in Spain where he was positioned last on the grid after they didn’t gas up his tank during the qualifiers. And who can forget about the crew dropping the jack before his front wheels were even screwed back on in Valencia?
McLaren was even reported to have offered him a third less than his previous contract to sign an extension deal to remain with them. It seems to me as if Hamilton was just plainly annoyed and had enough. But, Mercedes isn’t exactly a better team either. In fact, the odds of winning another championship are highly greater if he’d stay with McLaren since he surely won’t be able to join either of the remaining top-three teams, Red Bull or Ferrari.
What’s done is done and as a result, McLaren will become a slightly inferior team while Mercedes will surely have the fastest driver. If Lewis Hamilton wants to be immortalized, he has to make sure that he gets the fastest car for him to become as overly aggressive as he is. Whether Lewis knows something we don’t and Mercedes is planning a big surprise for us in the upcoming season or he’s just simply looking for a place to start anew, we’ll have to wait until March to find the answers to that.
