Hamilton will move to Mercedes from McLaren

By Andrew Benson Chief F1 writer for BBC wrotes: "Lewis Hamilton is on the verge of leaving McLaren to drive for Mercedes next season, according to BBC F1 chief analyst Eddie Jordan. The former team boss says Hamilton will replace Michael Schumacher, who will retire from driving for a second time at the end of the year."

"I believe Hamilton and Mercedes have already agreed personal terms and a deal could be imminent," Jordan said.

Mercedes and a representative for Hamilton have refused to comment.

A McLaren spokesman said: "Negotiations between Lewis Hamilton and McLaren continue. "It would appear Michael [Schumacher] is leaving and Lewis is arriving at Mercedes ”

F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone hinted last Sunday that Schumacher was retiring. Ecclestone told Jordan on BBC One: "I'm sorry that he's leaving us not being a winner, because he is a winner." Asked if knew whether Schumacher was retiring, Ecclestone added: "I don't know, I don't know." Confronted with Ecclestone's comments, Schumacher insisted after Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix that he had not yet decided on his future.
