    Welcome to the F1 2012 "Shuffle The Drivers" competition

    Eduring respect and admiration to the first person who correctly predicts who will replace him at McLaren and all of the other resulting driver changes!

    My suggestion is:
    Paul DiResta to McLaren

    He's clearly after nothing more than money as the Mercedes car car is rubbish.

    Using news sites, and not uninformed opinion is cheating!

    Interesting move, think it shows that he cares less about the performance of the car and more about the focus on him. At Mclaren they have a good car but it's not designed for him and he doens't get all his way ( though he does most) . He'll be the number 1 at Mercedes.

    Silly boy? You people forget too quickly and it annoys me how much it happens for Lewis Hamilton.
    People whinge about his driving and forget about Senna.
    People whinge about him moving (it's all for the money) and forget about "that stupid, career-ending move that Schumacher made to Ferrari in 1996..."

    Tsk! Call yourself F1 fans? Make the judgement after a couple of years.

    All F1 fans are good at judging before the facts are known. That is what gives us things to talk about all week

    If I am honest I think it will be very good for him to be led by someone like Ross Braun and the ambition of Mercedes to win in F1 certainly works in his favour. How do you see the Lewis & Nico partnership working?

    Well they are very good friends off track and all the way through karting. But we know what F1 does to "friends".

    Well I for one do not care where he goes as long as he spends less time on the podium I am a happy man, can not stand the arrogant little primadonna. Button is a much better driver anyway.

    What next - Rossi signing for Ducati?

    Valentino survived because he has so much public support. Everyone was willing him to do well. I suspect it will be the opposite with Hamilton.

    Glad im not the only one hating this stupid move, Lewis really does seem to be throwing a tantrum... i really dont know..

    Most drivers go up the grid till the end of their career, Lewis much younger, very talented but going backwards to a car fighting for 5th in the championship. Maybe he wants to do an Alonso be number 1, get a 2nd rate car up the field. Reliability though is not on Mercs side either compared to Ferrari....

    Oh well, Maca gained Perez and unless he easily beats Button maybe we will see Button fighting for the championship. Button is back to his consistent ways just like we had last season where he finished 2nd behind that brilliant RBR and Vettel.
