strad - could you have given your driver a replica or is that a rule you must obey?
When we make the replicas of our designs they are exact in every detail. Considering they have not been covered in Mumm they are probably better! Seriously we could not tell the difference between them and we do not always get requested to make replicas.
Lewis Hamilton says keeping his trophies will be a "push point" in talks over a new contract with McLaren. Hamilton said: "[The McLaren executive chairman] Ron [Dennis] and the team have all the trophies in the cabinet and the drivers get replicas.
"In a lot of other teams, the drivers get their original trophies. As a racing driver, what you work for and what you want to take home are two things; one is your crash helmet and the other is your trophy. For me, they are priceless.
"I don't care if they don't give me a car, but those two things are what you put your blood and sweat into – and they keep those at the moment. So whatever contract I'm having next, that is going to be a push point.
