Video: Has Hamilton’s move paid off?


It is unquestionably one of the biggest moves in Formula One’s recent history. After thirteen years with his boyhood team McLaren, Lewis Hamilton decided to leave the nest and join Mercedes for 2013. The German team has won just one race since they returned to the sport in 2010, but following a good display in testing, Hamilton appears to be settling in well with Mercedes as they look to challenge for the win at the Australian Grand Prix.

Hamilton spoke about the move to NBC for the F1 Countdown season preview show, with Leigh Diffey, Steve Matchett and David Hobbs discussing the ins-and-outs of his decision.
