The BBC Sport F1 pundit and former Jordan boss Eddie Jordan said he believes a deal between Hamilton and Mercedes is imminent. Also he was reports Lewis Hamilton replacing Michael Schumacher.

Lewis Hamilton’s current deal will expire end of this season, but they are still confirming Hamilton’s management team between Lewis Hamilton and McLaren continue.

“I believe Hamilton and Mercedes have already agreed personal terms and a deal could be imminent,” Jordan told BBC Sport.

“Some weeks ago I said on TV that I felt Lewis was on the move and I had an idea at the time he had been speaking to Ferrari, which we now know is true. But I can now confirm his people have had meetings with Mercedes”.

“Bernie Ecclestone made it clear to me live on television on Sunday that Schumacher was leaving, although Schumacher later played it down. So it would appear Michael is leaving and Lewis is arriving at Mercedes. Hamilton has not agreed terms with McLaren yet.”

“We have been told by Lewis Hamilton’s management team that the story is untrue,” a spokesperson said. “Negotiations between Lewis Hamilton and McLaren continue.”

McLaren and Hamilton are at odds over the his financial package going forward, with McLaren chairman Ron Dennis saying earlier this year: “He’s on the end of a contract which was signed at a time when the economy was somewhat different and now there has to be a balance between that.”
