Hamilton "lost faith" in McLaren

BBC Sport's chief F1 writer, Andrew Benson believes Lewis Hamilton decided to leave McLaren for Mercedes because he has "lost faith" in his team.

Hamilton has signed a three-year deal to race for Mercedes from next season, and Benson says the move is a blow for McLaren as they have lost "the fastest driver in F1".

The deal has forced Michael Schumacher out of Mercedes, while Sauber's Sergio Perez will replace Hamilton at McLaren.
