Last few weeks F1 paddocks talking about Lewis Hamilton’s future seat. Some reports claim the Brit get an offer from Mercedes to replace Schumacher in 2013 F1 season.

British media recently reported that McLaren team boosted its future contract offer to Lewis Hamilton following rumors that he has try to signing a deal with Mercedes for 2013 F1 season.

The Guardian reports that McLaren have offered an additional £2 million a year on top of their original offer of £10 million in order to oppose the offer from Mercedes, which the Times believes stands at £10.5 million.

“I think any ambitious team looks at the top drivers and we’re an ambitious team,” Brawn told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“But I think there’s an awful lot of speculation. We will have – I think – some things to say in the next few weeks and the next few months and then all will become clear.”

Media repeated the question that if he’d like to have Hamilton at Mercedes Brawn replied: “He’s a very good driver. A very good driver.”

Ross Brawn says about seven-time world champion future, Mercedes is still under discussion and also admits he is huge asset to the team.

“It’s still under discussion I’m afraid, I can’t comment very much on that. Michael’s been a huge asset to the team; he’s really taken us forward. I do think Michael contributes an awful lot so I think the decision for Michael to stay or continue is a difficult one. Obviously he is very involved in that decision and discussions are going on at the moment.”
