Today World Championship Leader Lewis Hamilton quashed the rumours of a possible return to McLaren, the team he had been a part of for 14 years before moving to Mercedes for 2013. After a season of highs and lows for Hamilton in 2014 he has found himself with a 10 point lead in the championship heading to Sochi, Russia. After the Pole-Gate in Monte Carlo, the collision with rival and team mate Nico Rosberg in Belgium and a contract extension for Rosberg, rumours of Hamilton leaving the Brackley based team have intensified, with the Brit linked with a return move to McLaren. It is highly rumoured that Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso will return to McLaren after leaving after one season in 2007. McLaren seem appealing to many drivers because of the return of Honda engines to F1. McLaren-Honda enjoyed a dominant spell with Senna and Prost in the late 80s and early 90s, which many drivers anticipate will bring McLaren back to the front of the grid after two disappointing seasons. However Hamilton confirmed on Twitter today the he is 100% committed to Mercedes, who have given the 2008 World Champion not only the best car on the grid but his best chance of another title since 2008. It would be a real risk for Hamilton to leave Mercedes who are a second to a second and a half quicker than the rest of the field to go back to McLaren who have the Mercedes engine but are struggling to get decent points consistently. Hamilton’s announcement comes as no surprise but it further implies that Fernando Alonso will be off to McLaren after Sebastian Vettel announced his departure from Red Bull.
