Lewis Hamilton has said that he would be taking best memories from his 14 year-long stay at McLaren.

The Brit is set to join Mercedes with a 60-million pound three-year contract following his final race in the weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix.

"This is quite a unique experience for me. I've obviously never been in this situation this weekend where it is my last race with the team I grew up with," the daily express quoted Hamilton, as saying.

"It's a tough one but I take away with me only the positive memories of our journey together: signing up together, winning our first race together and our championship," he said.

"I only have good memories, just the greatest memories of the best experiences and I've made a lot of good friends who I hope will continue to be friends throughout the future," he added.

Hamilton also said that though he maybe leaving the Woking-based team, he would always keep coming back for dinners and lunches.

"Even though I will be with Mercedes, I probably will keep coming back to have lunch and dinner back at their hospitality area because the food's great. I hope the Mercedes hospitality lives up to the one we have," he said. (ANI)
