Hamilton: "I'm kind of like, what's going on, what's going on?"

Lewis Hamilton revealed his confusion surrounding his future, refusing to deny a possible move to Mercedes in place of Michael Schumacher, stating "In my mind I'm kind of like what's going on, what's going on?". Hamilton said he is leaving his contract negotiation to his manager, Simon Fuller, preferring instead to praise arch-rival Alonso, "Fernando is a two-time champion, and he's the best there is".

I'm not sure what I'm more sick of listening to Hamilton, all this crap about your contract or you praising me all the time.

You're totally the best Nando, it's going to take a mega effort to beat you. A big shout out to my homie Simon, he's doing the contract stuff so I can focus on driving.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Hmmm, I think you should be wary of your "homie" Simon, his level of contractual foresight was summed up when he got Gary Glitter to do a cameo in the Spice girl's movie.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
Si has got it down Nando, but I find all this contract stuff as confusing as a mofo. I mean, I'm like, what's going on?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
What's really alarming is that your vocabulary appears to be descending to the levels of a star of another infamous McLaren contract debacle.

McLaren be doing a total bad to Lewis, he drived good for them. Ron f**king fired me just cause I broke my f**king head for done worser the tennis.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I think it was because you were a thick, podgy prat who couldn't control a quadbike, never mind an F1 car. Anyway, it's easy to get out of a McLaren contract, just pop into the team principal with your laptop and threaten to incriminate him.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I tried that by tweeting my telemetry Nando, all that happened was that Martin gave me a lecture, I mean WTF!
rondennis   Ron Dennis
You bloody canary Alonso, it took me seven bottles of Blue Nun to calm down enough to ring the FIA.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
Word up Ron, I'm keeping all the bling from now on, the trophies are mega important to me.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Yep, because you're more special than Senna, Prost, and all the other McLaren champions who handed over their trophies. Maybe you want to melt them down to make ear-rings even more ridiculous than the one you wear now.

I'd like to make the point if I may that I have a source which leads me to understand that the Lewis-Mercedes deal is done, which is a disgrace given the opportunities given to Lewis by McLaren and which he has shown no loyalty or appreciation for. Will someone please give Jaime Alguersari a top drive. I'd like to finish by saying that Lewis is absolutely correct to switch his loyalty to another team given how little McLaren have done to give him a proper shot at the title.

Interesting points as always there. So Eddie Jordan understands that Lewis has signed for Mercedes. Maybe we can put that to Martin Whitmarsh who was standing right next to Eddie when he insulted the McLaren team.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
The view of the McLaren group is that any statement beginning with "Eddie Jordan understands" is immediately questionable.

Thanks Martin, we always appreciate you speaking to us. I just want to let you all know guys that I will be moving to BT next year to front soccer coverage. Just remember you can still tweet me, don't forget me guys, tweet me.

Woaaaaaaaaaaaah guys! If the BBC give me the anchor's job I'll be back with you every weekend. Goooooooooooooooooooooooo!
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Christ, I think I'd rather watch Jim Rosenthal and Steve Ryder mud-wrestling than see your mug back on F1 coverage Allen.
nico   Nico Rosberg
Michael, I know it must be difficult to hear all this speculation about Lewis taking your seat. Although somehow I will likely beat you in the championship for the third year running, I really hope you stay with the team in 2013 so I can continue to learn from you.
diResta   Paul di Resta
Given I will most likely be the centrepiece of any BBC coverage when I retire from racing, I would like to thank Jake for his professionalism to me in my nascent TV career in what some naive and short-sighted ordinary viewers might see as a ludicrously disproportionate amount of coverage devoted to a future megastar. Speaking of departures, in my capacity as a future world champion I would like to personally thank Michael for the example he has shown the man who will usurp his records and take the spotlight,so to speak.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well Britney, after winning 91 times as many races as you, if I need your support I''ll ask for your hairspray. As for you Di Resta, the spotlight will certainly be yours when I borrow one from trackside in Singapore and implant it in your to speak.
