Oct.6 The last stretch of Lewis Hamilton's McLaren career has not started well, according to The Independent newspaper.
And Hamilton told reporters on Thursday that he knows all about McLaren's plans for the 2013 single seater that he will never drive.
"Trust me, it will be a good car next year, I know," he smiled to his replacement, Sergio Perez, at Suzuka.
"I know exactly what's going on next year with your car."
Team boss Martin Whitmarsh said he is not worried.
"I think if I was pursuing intellectual property from other teams, I'd probably go for engineers not drivers," he said.
"But I think Lewis is respectful of the team and what it's doing."
