Lewis Hamilton is to replace Michael Schumacher at Mercedes next season, the Formula One firm announced on Friday, bringing to an end months of speculation about the Briton's future at McLaren. 

Former Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, seen here on September 7, has signed a three-year deal to drive for Mercedes from 2013, replacing seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, the firm has announced.
