June.13 – The McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton met for private talks with Red Bull Racing chief Christian Horner at the team’s office buildings on Saturday evening at Canada. Previously this season, when McLaren looked to have critically failed their MP4-26, rumours did the rounds that Hamilton could look for employment elsewhere when his contract with the Woking team expires at the end of 2012.
But, 2008 champion said that he is dedicated to McLaren.
“There is no question of my loyalty for my team. It’s been my team since I was six years old,” he said back in April. I’m here, I’m committed to them. I want to try and help them as well as becoming one of the most successful drivers myself. I want them to be out there to do that for me.”
Autosport reports that “Hamilton met for private talks with Red Bull Racing chief Christian Horner at the team’s office buildings on Saturday evening – where the two spent at least 15 minutes together chatting in private.
“Although it is not known exactly what they talked about, as one Red Bull source cheekily dismissed the get-together as nothing more than a ‘social visit’, it would be unlikely that the pair did not discuss future intentions. Autosport, though, did add that there is “no suggestion that it was anything more than a preliminary chat, or that the talks will definitely develop into something in the future.”
