Lewis Hamilton stayed clear of giving any indication about which team he will drive for next year insisting that his focus this season was on winning the championship.

The Briton’s contract with McLaren is up at the end of the year with the 2008 world champion currently in negotiations with the British team and also reportedly Mercedes for a future.

"I don't have a timeline,” Hamilton was quoted saying by Reuters. "Of course I do have to have those things sorted out but I do have people in the background working on those contract negotiations.

"There's a lot of speculation, there's a lot of stories that aren't true,” he pointed out. "I think we're all wise enough to understand that people write things and that what is written is not necessarily what is true.”

McLaren has won the last three Grands Prix dominating from pole position, with Hamilton emerging victorious on two occasions moving him up to second in the drivers’ standings.

"We've worked so hard since 2009 to try and win this championship and hopefully, finally, we're in the position where we can," the 27-year-old said. "So the most important thing is that I do not get distracted by all the rubbish that's been around."
