London, Apr. 17 : Formula One racing champion Lewis Hamilton will stay on at McLaren.
The world champion pledged his support for the under-fire team's new regime as manager Ron Dennis stepped down from all grand prix activities.
Dennis, 61, insisted his decision to go had nothing to do with McLaren's appearance before motor sport chiefs over the Aussie Liargate scandal.
He said the timing was "purely coincidental" and all about becoming chief executive of their new sports car business.
