McLaren last night denied stories emanating from BBC F1 chief analyst Eddie Jordan that Lewis Hamilton has signed a deal to drive for the Mercedes F1 team from next season.

According to Jordan, Hamilton and Mercedes have already agreed personal terms and a deal – reported to be worth £60m over three years – could be imminent. However, a McLaren spokesman said yesterday: "We have been told by Lewis Hamilton's management team that the story is untrue." Hamilton's contract with McLaren runs out at the end of this season.
