I've read speculation that LH's M-B contract includes a lot less PR activity on his part at and between the races, which by all accounts he despises, and a future role as a "brand ambassador" for M-B after he retires from racing. Seems contradictory, since both involve pretty much the same bullshit, but nothing about this move makes much sense anyway.
