Brazilian GP: Lewis Hamilton wants to salute Ayrton Senna with race victory
Interestingly, last season, arch-rival of Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, won the Brazilian GP.
New Delhi: After taking an unassailable lead in the Formula One championship, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is now eyeing a maiden win at Brazilian Grand Prix, scheduled for Sunday, to salute his hero Ayrton Senna.
“He (Ayrton Senna) was such a huge hero in Brazil and it's humbling that I always get such a warm response there. It's amazing to think that it took Ayrton eight attempts to win this race and it's one of the few I haven't yet won myself.
If I can change that this weekend it would be a salute to him and another highlight to add to this amazing year, so I'll be going all out to make that happen,” Hamilton was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
Interestingly, last season, team-mate and arch-rival of the Briton, Nico Rosberg won the Brazilian GP. And the German seems quite determined to repeat the feat.
“I've usually been pretty quick there and last year was a good battle with Lewis, when I came out on top. I'd love to experience that again, so the aim is to put on another good show for the fans and to carry my form from Mexico into this race.” Rosberg told media.
