McLaren Group Chairman Ron Dennis says that there’s no reason why Hamilton won’t be driving our cars in the future. It has strongly indicated that Lewis Hamilton will stay McLaren for 2013 F1 season. 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton is out of deal at the end of the season, with rumours that Mercedes and Ferrari would be interested in securing his services should he decide to move.
McLaren’s unformed ran what he explain as a ‘poor patch’ in figure, Dennis believes the McLaren is now back on-track and can every time fight for victories and they are also confident with successful upgrades at Hockenheim.
Lewis Hamilton now sits fifth in the drivers’ championship also 62 points behind championship leader Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso. McLaren also third in the constructors’ championship just one points ahead of Lotus.
“We’ve had a poor patch, I think we’re quite strong again now,” Dennis told BBC Radio 5 live.
“Hopefully (we can get) a good result in Hungary going into the summer break. There are over nine races to go so we’re well in with a chance of the championship.
“There’s no reason why Lewis won’t be driving our cars in the future. I think people get a little wrong impression. When I last looked at the contract I was paying him, so it’s a question of whether we employ him, not the other way around.”
“I think the fact that we nearly won the last Grand Prix (in Germany) says what our performance is really like,” he continued. “If things pan out the way I expect them to, I’m pretty sure he’ll (Hamilton) be sat in a McLaren next year.”
