( AFP ) - Formula One star Lewis Hamilton insisted Sunday that he wants to stay with McLaren for life.

The 22-year-old narrowly missed out on the driver's championship title in his first full season and looks set to be McLaren's number one driver next season after the departure of Fernando Alonso.

Now Hamilton has set his sights on winning the world title and staying with McLaren throughout his racing career.

Hamilton told Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "I don't know how long I will be in Formula One but the team I am with right now is the only team I want to be with.

"I know the guys so well and I had a great season. They gave me a great opportunity. I want to win world championships and I want to win it for them.

"I see my career ending with them. I don't feel there is anywhere else to go. When you are in Formula One there are the top teams and I believe McLaren is a top team, so why would I make a sidestep or a back step to any other team. I want to be the best driver there is today."
