London: Former Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has said that he would quit Formula One if he was forced to change his gung-ho racing style.
According to a newspaper report, the McLaren ace has vowed he will never give up his attacking approach, even if it landed him in hot water with the Monte Carlo stewards.
Hamilton, 26, said: "If it ever came to the stage where I had to just cruise round, that wouldn't excite me. I probably wouldn't stay around for that, I am here to race and to win. If I have to lose that passion, that blows all racing.”
He added: "In all honesty I will never stop racing the way I do. It's the way I do it, it's what got me here and it's the way I am.”
