Lewis Hamilton is changing his management after his contract with Simon Fuller’s XIX Management Company has expired.

The British driver entered Formula 1 with his father Anthony as his manager but later opted to sign with Fuller’s XIX, who negotiated his move from McLaren to Mercedes.

However, with his contract with the management company having recently concluded, the Mercedes driver has revealed he won’t be re-signing.

He told Autosport: “There is not really much to say. The contract expired and I am going to be doing something different.

“I don’t know what yet, but I will decide at the end of the year.”

It remains to be seen whether Hamilton signs a new manager in the coming weeks or negotiates his own contract extension with Mercedes.
