Hamilton calls off negotiations

Lewis Hamilton has asked his management, XIX Entertainment, to call off contract negotiations with the Mclaren team for the time being.

It was another disappointing race weekend for the Brit in Monaco. A poor start and pitstop saw him drop from third on the grid to finish 5th, behind his main championship rivals. After the race Lewis was left reeling, complaining about his team, he said: “The team have definitely got some work to do because we are falling behind race by race. The others are picking up some serious pace. If we’re not lucky then it will fall away from us.”

Hamilton is unhappy with errors out of his control, which have led him to lose a firm grip on the championship. It is possible that the Englishman will now ask his management to look around for other suitors like Red Bull, Mercedes and Ferrari.

It comes after the media reported that Mclaren had laid down an offer on the table for Lewis before the Monaco GP, worth around £95 million for 5 years. It has been a year since he was seen holding talks with Christian Horner in the paddock at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2011.

Lewis currently sits 4th in the Drivers’ Championship, 13 points behind leader Fernando Alonso and is the only one of the front runners yet to win a race this 2012 season.
