McLaren's Lewis Hamilton plans to start the Formula One season under new management after a year-long search for the right person to take care of his business affairs.

"Nothing has been signed or fully firmed up," said the 2008 world champion after giving Reuters a breathtaking blast around a wet southern English airfield circuit in a fiery orange McLaren MP4-12C sports car.

"But I'm really hopeful in the next week or so we should hopefully have an announcement... definitely before Australia," he added.

stages.
