Hamilton splits with long-time manager weeks before start of F1 season

The British driver has worked with Hynes for over five years, during which time he has secured four further F1 world championships.

Lewis Hamilton will be without his long-time right hand man and friend Marc Hynes this year after the British driver parted company with the former European Formula 3 champion ahead of the new season.

The pair are understood to have parted ways on an amicable basis after Hynes role was discussed ahead of the 2021 F1 season, RacingNews365.com has learned from sources close to the situation.

Hynes was previously the head of the seven-time world champion’s 'Project 44' management company, which Hamilton founded after he split with former manager Simon Fuller nearly seven years ago.

The duo had known each other since Hamilton’s junior career. From 2001 to 2004, Hamilton raced for Manor Motorsport in several different junior categories, where Hynes held varying positions as both a driver and coach, where the two struck up a friendship.
