Without Lewis Hamilton, McLaren would not be as strong a contender as it was with a line-up which boasted of two world champions in the past three seasons, according to rivals.

The Briton will be driving for Mercedes next season with Sergio Perez from Sauber serving as a replacement to partner Jenson Button at the British team.

"I think McLaren is a weaker team without Lewis. I think McLaren would admit that,” Red Bull team principal Christian Horner was quoted saying by Reuters.

"Whichever team had taken Lewis, he would be an asset. I'm sure he will naturally add performance to Mercedes next year," he added.

Hamilton finished just two points ahead of his teammate in 2012 despite registering seven pole positions and four victories against Button’s solitary pole and three wins.
