If the R&D in this game worked, we would be able to do the same thing that Hamilton did. For an example: Move to Mclaren ( who promises a car able to fight for championships in the future ).patronas said:Hamilton went to mercedes in 2013 with 2014 been in mind he knew merc wernt going to be fighting for the title in 2013 allthough the did come close but it was the promise of what merc were doing for 2014 with the new regs that perswaded him to go to merc merc were working there way up from 2010 to be ready for 2014 he all so wanted to branch out on his own set his own terms and he wanted a new challenge but I dont think he would of went there if it wasent for the promise of 2014 if merc hadent put all there work into it that the had put in at that stage its no secret merc was the first team to start on the 2014 project well before any other team put a thought into it fact1henryw said:
"no top tier driver is going to give up his seat in a championship car"
errr Hamilton did just that in 2012 when he signed for Mercedes for 2013 who were FIfth in the 2012 constructors. Know your F1 it happens all the time when drivers seek new challenges. As for drivers never starting out with top teams. Ummmm Lewis Hamilton's first season ever was with Mclaren!!!! He finished second in the championship. Damon Hills first full season of F1was with reigning champions Williams. It happens!
When Hamilton joined Mercedes they weren't a top team, matedwin20 said:What is the likelihood of Hamilton being offered a contract by a lower level team? Or Vettel being offered a contract by a lower level team? Is that a real possibility?
