Lewis Hamilton is gearing up for his final race with McLaren this weekend hoping to give the team he spent the last six years with a more than adequate parting gift.

Bound for Mercedes in 2013 for a new challenge, the Briton made his debut for the Woking-based outfit in 2007 with the this year's season-finale at the Brazilian Grand Prix set to be an emotional send-off.

“As my final race behind the wheel of a McLaren, I vow to the whole team that I’ll give it my all on every single lap,” Hamilton said. “My win in Austin last week was one of the races of my life, and I’d love to take victory in Brazil this weekend to give the team the perfect farewell present.”

His father and former manager, Anthony, reckoned that it was a partnership that would be missed.

"The Hamiltons are synonymous with McLaren and vice-versa," he told Sky television. "But to be honest I think it's nice to go off to greener pastures and see whether you can develop something new in your life.

"One of our greatest ever challenges was coming from a council house to Formula 1. I never ever believed that would happen to us. Then Lewis becomes a Formula 1 champion and now we are almost rebuilding the challenge," he added referring to the move to Mercedes.
