Exclamation Lewis Hamilton To Mercedes, Sergio Perez to McLaren

So for the F1 fans out there, it's finally official, Lewis Hamilton has left McLaren to further build his "brand".

-Mercedes has confirmed that Lewis Hamilton will join the team from McLaren at the end of this season, replacing Michael Schumacher.

Hamilton has signed a three-year deal and will team up with Nico Rosberg, bringing an end to speculation over his own future but leaving Schumacher's uncertain. Reports first claimed that Hamilton was subject to a contract offer from Mercedes before the Italian Grand Prix, but as recently as the Singapore Grand Prix McLaren was hopeful of retaining the 2008 World Champion.

However, it has now been confirmed that Hamilton will join Mercedes and Hamilton said he was looking forward to "a fresh challenge".

"It is now time for me to take on a fresh challenge and I am very excited to begin a new chapter racing for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team," Hamilton said. "Mercedes-Benz has such an incredible heritage in motorsport, along with a passion for winning which I share.

"Together, we can grow and rise to this new challenge. I believe that I can help steer the Silver Arrows to the top and achieve our joint ambitions of winning the world championships."

Team principal Ross Brawn said Hamilton's arrival gives Mercedes "the most dynamic and exciting driver pairing on the grid", and that the team now has the potential to match any team.

"I am delighted to welcome Lewis Hamilton to our team," Brawn said. "The arrival of a driver of Lewis' calibre is a testament to the standing of Mercedes-Benz in Formula One and I am proud that Lewis shares our vision and ambition for the success of the Silver Arrows. I believe that the combination of Lewis and Nico will be the most dynamic and exciting pairing on the grid next year, and I am looking forward to what we can achieve together.

"Over the past three years, we have been putting in place the foundations and building blocks that are needed to compete regularly for the world championship. Behind the scenes, we have assembled a team that is technically stronger, more experienced and better resourced, thanks to the support of Petronas and all of our loyal team partners. The potential is now there to match any other team on the grid, which is the minimum standard for a Mercedes-Benz works team. Our task is now to translate that potential into on-track performance for next season and beyond."

Didn't think Hamilton would actually leave. Mercedes apparently are going have an advantage in 2014 with the new regulations so this is a good (and only) move for Lewis, I hope he flops though.

Perez has been impressive in the Sauber so this is a deserved promotion for him, although I was expecting him to join Ferrari.

The past 16 or 18 championships out of 20 or 22 have gone to cars designed by either Adrian Newey or Ross Brawn, in that sense, it's good to be driving one of their cars when there is a massive rule change. They have hired some very good people I must say, that being said, it's not a guarantee that they will get it right. I think it's still a gamble, what he does get for certain is a lot more $$$.

Never liked Lewis Hamilton, good riddance IMO by McLaren. At least my boy Jenson Button's still there.

And good catch on Sergio Perez who's making waves, the kid's got game. Now that he's in a better team overall he'll have more podium finishes.

Sergio Perez could worth a punt for the F1 title next year. Get a good price.
