Austin:

Formula One world championship leader Lewis Hamilton confirmed on Sunday he will be changing agents following the end of his current deal with music mogul Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment.

The 29-year-old Briton -- world champion in 2008 -- will line up second on the grid alongside Mercedes team-mate and title rival German Nico Rosberg for Sunday's United States Grand Prix, said he will do something different.

Hamilton confirmed his break with Fuller late on Saturday.

Fuller's agency oversaw Hamilton's surprise move from McLaren to Mercedes two years ago for a reported $100 million dollar three-year contract that ends next year.

Hamilton became a Fuller client after splitting from his father Anthony's management company in 2010. The XIX agency also handles British sports stars David Beckham, Bradley Wiggins and Andy Murray.

"There's not really much to say, I haven't made any plans at the moment," said Hamilton.

"Just the contract expired and I'm going to be doing something different. I'm not really sure what yet, but I'll decide at the end of the year."
