Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will continue to use race number #44 in F1 2015, rather than switch to number #1 as the current Formula 1 World Champion can.

The FIA published an updated entry list just prior to Christmas, confirming the Briton's choice.

The revised entry list now shows Lotus F1 as "to be confirmed" too, it also still includes Caterham and Marussia - under the Manor F1 Team name.

Marussia and Caterham both went into administration before the end of the 2014 season, with the latter making the final race in Abu Dhabi under a crowd funding scheme, while the former came close to getting to the grid for the finale but failed with its assets auctioned off earlier this month.

The last entry list published at the start of November noted that the "provisional list [is] subject to confirmation by the FIA that the conditions of entry are respected".

Entry payments were required by November 30.

Judging by the FACT nearly twice as many people agreed with 443311chap's comment, I'd say Lewis is more popular on here than the usual suspects believe......
