McLaren to technical director Paddy Lowe says that they will all miss Lewis Hamilton when he departs from the Woking based squad.

2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton will end his 14-year relationship with McLaren at the end of the season and to join Mercedes, the farewell seized in Interlagos at Brazilian GP on this weekend.

Lewis Hamilton made his first F1 appearance with McLaren in the 2007 season and went on to win the driver’s title in 2008.

Lowe has a high regard for the Hamilton’s skill, he is a fantastic driver and a fantastic guys and also he wished him the best for the future with Mercedes.

“He is the most fantastic driver. We will all miss him. We wish him the best for the future and we will look forward after Brazil to next year. Lowe said in a Vodafone phone-in

“He is a fantastic driver and a fantastic guy, and we have been through lot of history together, personally I have worked with him since 2007 but that’s been six years of fantastic racing and great successes – and some tough times as well.

“Things change in the world, that’s how life is but we look forward to a great season next year when Sergio [Perez] arrives and there’s great promise there.”

Lowe believes McLaren’s latest reliability, and he expecting they can overtook Ferrari in Brazil for second constructors’ championship. McLaren currently third in constructors’ championship 12 points behind the Italian outfit Ferrari.

“We’re optimistic. There’s no reason why we can’t carry forward the pace we showed at the weekend in Austin into Brazil,” he said.

“There’s promise of rain, which will of course add a new element but we’ll be pushing very hard to win the race, not just with Lewis as Jenson is equally capable of winning in Brazil and we’re going there to get two guys on the podium and hopefully on the top two steps. We’ll admit that our prime objective is to overhaul Ferrari in constructors.

“We need to get both cars ahead of Ferrari to close gap – that’s what we have to do. If there’s rain it’ll be even more interesting.”
