According the latest from MAX : I truly hope I can show my raindance again at Interlagos . Despite the damage on my car, the car felt really competitive in the US ,especially at the end of the race .I came very close , too bad at that moment they showed the yellow flags
Normally seen , I can fight in the last 2 races for the podium .

Bottom line: if Lewis has beaten all of Schumacher’s records except for getting the 8th WDC, he’s staying at MB.
If you know anything about Lewis he loves a challenge. He very much enjoys the fight against the new young crop and would not shy away from a change.

More importantly he has huge respect for Schumi. Lets say he ties Schumi's record next year. I wouldn't put it past Lewis to switch and try to surpass Michael's championships in a Ferrari.

As far as Ferrari strategy sh*tshow, I agree they are a mess and have been for years. But Lewis can always have some of his guys follow him over.

Lol Hamilton loves a challenge? Is that why he left McLaren. Hamilton and any other driver wants to be in a strong car with a strong team behind him so he can beat everyone. If he really loves a challenge why didn't he stay in McLaren and "challenged" in that car?

Not much of an F1 historian then?
2012:
McLaren 7 wins total points 378
Mercedes 1 win total points 142
Niki Lauda convinced Hamilton to switch to a far less competitive team.

I didn't say anything about Vettel. But he left when he stopped winning and he left to his dream team.

HAM said in an interview a few years back (Google it and you'll find it) that it wasn't about Niki and it wasn't about Ron. But since Niki died, as usual, he changed his mind and said it's because of him.
No I'm not a historian but I'm also not a fangirl idolizing the great HAM. He left McLaren when they were on the decline. XIX and Eccelstone played a big part of it because McLaren's rules didn't allow him to self-promote. Mercedes offered much more money, is one of only 2 works teams, was able to offer him more leeway with XIX and his sidegigs, and F1 was entering a new rules overhaul and Ferrari and RedBull had no interest in him.

What about talks of him going to Ferrari? As far as I know he, and his fangirl base, say that Ferrari is the faster car. How's that a challenge? Or is he just jumping ship?

Guess you forget the headlines when Lewis left for Mercedes? Why, what is he doing, chasing money, etc. Short memory I guess. Merc was not what it was today, not even close.

Quote from a 2012 article:
"McLaren have the fastest car this season, while Mercedes have slipped backwards after a promising start to the year.
But Mercedes have sold the move to Hamilton on the basis that they are preparing for a huge push in 2014, when new chassis and engine rules are introduced."

Merc was still struggling during Lewis's first season at Merc. The team won a total of 3 races in 2013. Absolutely nothing was promised from the new rules(2014 hybrid era). Lewis isn't nostradamus, he had no idea what was coming. So saying he left for a strong car is far fetched at best, if anything he took a huge gamble.

Exactly. Everyone in the media thought he made a horrible decision. The Merc's were notorious for blowing through tires in a couple laps when Lewis arrived.
