Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton smashed Shane Warne for six on Thursday and then batted away speculation about his future at McLaren.
Australian Warne,widely regarded as cricket’s greatest leg-spinner,treated Hamilton to the softest of deliveries at a sponsor event before the Briton headed for more serious business at the nearby Albert Park circuit.
British newspapers had run headlines overnight suggesting that the 24-year-old,who has said previously that he would be happy to see out his career at McLaren,might be open to a move elsewhere.
Hamilton,whose team is battling to get their car up to speed before Sunday’s Australian season-opener,said there was nothing in the reports.
“I am happy where I am,you can take it how you want,” he said.
“It doesn’t really have any grounds. What I said was that I think it is quite cool if you find out that other teams are interested in you. It’s good to know that you are wanted.
“I honestly want to see out my career at McLaren,” he continued. “I am happy where I am and I do feel it is my family.”
