Didier Coton joins Lewis Hamilton's management team

Lewis Hamilton, McLarenLewis Hamilton has received a behind-the-scenes boost with the appointment of highly-respected manager Didier Coton to help look after him.

Coton, who is most well-known for looking after Mika Hakkinen during the most successful period of his career, has been taken on by Hamilton's XIX Entertainment management company.

The move to appoint someone with vast experience of F1 comes after a season when Hamilton's management came under scrutiny following the on and off-track problems the former world champion faced.

Speaking about the move, Hamilton was quoted as saying by The Press Association: "Simon [Fuller, XIX Entertainment owner] is committed to creating a team that will help me achieve my ambitions for 2012 and beyond.

"Didier's appointment builds on the existing strengths of XIX and I am delighted to have him as part of the team. I'm positive about the season ahead and can't wait to start."
