Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has refused to criticise his former team McLaren after leaving them last year.
Recently, Juan Pablo Montoya and Fernando Alonso have left McLaren and had very few positive words to say about the team.
Hamilton left the Woking based club after five years with them and in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, he only had positives to say.
Hamilton said: "I don't know what other people say, but I can't say anything bad about McLaren. First of all, they brought me to Formula One, without them I would not be here.
"In my time with them we always won at least one Grand Prix every year; it's a great team, one of the greatest in history."
Hamilton took part in 110 races when he was at McLaren and secured his first ever World Championship there in 2008.
Since then, he has not finished in the top three for the Championship, although the 28-year-old was still competitive in the races, winning four times last season.
Since joining Mercedes on a three year contract for this season, Hamilton is yet to win a race, although he has been on pole once and finished on the podium on two occasions.
It's not all been plain sailing for Hamilton this season either as he admitted after the last race in Monaco he was struggling to drive the Mercedes car.
