Hamilton targetting Belgian Grand Prix glory
London: McLaren Fomula One driver Lewis Hamilton is targetting to forget the points deficits and focus on winning Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix for the second year running.
Hamilton insisted that McLaren’s only option for overhauling Red Bull’s runaway championship leader Sebastian Vettel is to charge ahead for wins.
“What’s important is that I drive the best I have ever driven. I think at the last race I wasn’t at the top of my game, so I want to make sure I am at my best, and that’s what I’m working towards,” the Daily Mail quoted Hamilton, as saying.
“The team are also working towards being at their best so together we can destroy the field. I had the realisation a long, long time ago I could not afford to make any more errors, but we’ve still had them. That’s why I’m kind of relaxed.”
“What will be, will be. We’ll have some ups and downs for the rest of the season, that’s the way it has gone,” he added.
Defending champion Vettel still stands 88 points ahead of third-placed Hamilton, with Jenson Button a further 12 points adrift of his team-mate.
