Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton is on the verge of announcing his new manager nearly a year after he split from his father, Anthony.

The McLaren driver revealed his intentions in Valencia as he returned to the track for the first time since the final grand prix of last season.

Hamilton wouldn't disclose if he would be making his choice from within the paddock but it's thought that agents IMG are leading the chase.

"I have a couple of candidates and I am just trying to decide which one. I'll let you know when I decide," he told reporters in Spain.

"Certain things will be taken care of a lot better than when I was looking after myself," Hamilton said, alluding to the difficulties he faced after he split with his father at the start of 2010.

The 2008 world champion expects to see more of his Dad this season though as he is now representing Britain's newest F1 driver, Paul Di Resta.

On day two of the three-day test, Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was quickest of the new cars ahead of world champion Sebastian Vettel in his Red Bull. McLaren have taken the 2010 car to Spain to test the Pirelli tyres which are new for this year, before they unveil their 2011 car next week.
