Lewis Hamilton pleads for Ross Brawn to stay with Mercedes but admits that any move wouldn't damage his 2014 hopes.

Lewis Hamilton has suggested that his quest to be world champion next year isn't dependent on whether Ross Brawn stays in charge of Mercedes.

The Silver Arrows boss has been heavily linked with an exit from the German constructor since the company recruited former McLaren man Paddy Lowe earlier in the year.

Hamilton told The Mirror: "He knows I'm a big supporter of his but at the end of the day he has to do what it right for him.

"I'm not putting any pressure on him at all but he knows I enjoy working with him."

Brawn has guided Michael Schumacher to world titles at Benetton and Ferrari over more than a decade and masterminded Jenson Button's championship victory in 2009.
