Lewis Hamilton: Mums apply to be my manager

Lewis Hamilton has received several unusual approaches from people asking to be his manager, but is unlikely to have anyone in place until after the end of the season.

Since splitting with father Anthony as his long-term advisor just before the start of the current campaign, Hamilton has appeared to become more comfortable as time has progressed.

Only once has Hamilton seemed in need of someone to look after his interests, and that was following the infamous ‘hooning’ incident in Australia when he was stopped by police for performing burn-outs in his hire car.

It is widely known Hamilton is keen to promote his image, as other sports stars have done such as Tiger Woods, Roger Federer and Wayne Rooney, which has led to him being linked with companies such as IMG.

The 25-year-old’s high-profile status has appreciably resulted in a number of offers, some of which have made him smile.

“I’ve no idea how many I’ve had, other than it’s a lot,” Hamilton said.

“I’ve even had a random parent approach. A woman with kids emailed the team and said ‘I think I could be a good manager for Lewis’.

“I’ve also met fans and they’ve said ‘I’ll be your manager’, but I haven’t sat and had any meetings or spoken to anyone.”

As far as Hamilton is concerned, the appointment is on hold, and when it does come, in the short term it will be more a of personal assistant type of figure to keep his every day affairs in order.

“My plan is that when I do involve someone it will only be in preparation for next year to ensure it is a smooth year,” added Hamilton.

“I’m not in any rush to have one. I’m not of the opinion that I desperately need a manager.

“It’s just that you need help from certain people around you to make things easier.

“I can’t sort my apartment, taxes, sponsor deals, emails from this person, that person. I can’t deal with that stuff.

“So you do need someone around you, but at the moment I don’t need a manager because I’m here for the next three years.

“If I wanted to I’m sure I could sit and negotiate my own deal, but you only really need to hire someone to come in and do the job at that point.

“So at the moment I’ve no plans. I’ve really not set in stone what I want to do.

“It’s obviously not easy because I’ve come from having a manager my whole life, so I’m not going to just sign up with someone random and regret it.

“I’m really going to think about that, and it takes time to think of what I want for the future.”
