Sir Jackie Stewart has advised Lewis Hamilton to stay put at McLaren, labeling the partnership as the ideal fit.
"I think McLaren are one of the best racing teams there's ever been in Formula One, they've got a facility second to none," the Scotsman said in an interview with Sky Sports News. "They've got a huge staff, they've got great knowledge and experience and have been competitive."
It has been rumored of the possibility that Hamilton might leave McLaren to join current rivals Red Bull, but Stewart maintained he could not see Hamilton with a more acceptable drive.
"At the end of last season Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button could hardly have had a better car to drive - of course it's always greener on the other side of the fence, but where would he go?
"If Mark Webber can demonstrate this season as much as I still think he has in the way of talent, then why would Red Bull want to get rid of Mark Webber when they've got Vettel in that team as well? Therefore would he go to Ferrari? It's a possibility, but would he want to take on Alonso who he had such trouble with when Alonso joined McLaren?
"Things can be mended, things can change, but from my point of view I think Lewis Hamilton fits McLaren very well and I think McLaren fits Lewis Hamilton. I think Jenson Button as a team-mate is a very good team-mate to have, I think it's a good duo altogether."
