Hamilton's father says he should stay with McLaren

"He's in love with them; they're in love with him. They're going through a little bit of turmoil like you do in any relationship. But it is going to be a happy marriage."

fernando   Fernando Alonso
Jeez, this sounds like the Jerry Springer show. Exactly who are you in love with at McLaren Hamilton?
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
They all love me, but I've had it guys, the pain of losing is just too much.
MycLaren   Martin Whitmarsh
Love is a strong word, and one we do not necessarily want associated with the McLaren group. Emotions can be dangerous in a racing context Lewis.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Maybe you should listen to your old man Hamilton, daddy knows best.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I don't do what I'm told anymore, I'm old enough to drive and go out. I would only listen to Ayrton Senna if he was here.
rondennis   Ron Dennis
I may be a little tired and emotional Lewis but please don't ruin this special relationship.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I'm getting emotional too, I haven't been this upset since Peter Andre and Jordan broke up.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
I also advised Hamilton to stay at McLaren. I'm going to be my typical controversial self here now and predict Lewis could perhaps do badly if he maybe decides to move teams.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Wow, you're hardly qualified to be a guidance counselor Jacques. Taking career advice from you would be about as wise as taking a lift from Ted Bundy.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
I don't know what you mean Michael, having made a successful transition to a multi-CD selling musician, I am now just as successful at F1 punditry.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
After your phenomenal string of 2 podiums in 5 years at Honda, I'd be interested to hear how many CDs you sold Jacques?
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
I believe it was in the hundreds Michael, so I am still a little short of getting a platinum disc.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I could probably flog my dirty underwear and shift more units than that. The only platinum discs you'll ever see will be to cover that hole in your brain.
diResta   Paul di Resta
Perhaps Lewis is also threatened by my relationship with his father who happens to be my manager. I would think that my phenomenal 6th place on the grid here at Silverstone, outqualifying Lewis by 4 places, would only add to this tension.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Good point Di Resta, I imagine Lewis may have eyes on your Force India seat. By the way, I won't be watching for you in my mirrors today.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I decided that rather than a complicated management arrangement with my father, I would go with the former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller instead. It's a showbiz world Nando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Good move Hamilton, I'm sure a multi-millionaire media leech will have your best interests at heart, more so than the man who worked three jobs to support your career.
