The Telegraph reported this week that Lauda and a German-language broadcaster are working with Mercedes to convince Lewis Hamilton to leave McLaren.

Lauda, 63, has also reportedly worked with the Stuttgart carmaker recently as an intermediary over Mercedes’ Concorde Agreement negotiations with Bernie Ecclestone.

But the great Austrian told the Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper: “No one has spoken to me or offered me such a job. So it’s groundless.”
