SAO PAULO : Lewis Hamilton is enjoying his underdog status in the Formula One title race. Hamilton is third in the points and needs outstanding finishes in the final two races to have a chance to win his second F1 title.

The British driver says "it`s easier to chase than it is to defend" and that he "hopes it pays off" to be on attack all weekend long at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Hamilton is 21 points behind series leader Fernando Alonso of Ferrari and 10 points behind Mark Webber of Red Bull.

He said not having the pressure of being in front makes him extra confident going into Sunday`s race: "I don`t know, but I feel really relaxed, energetic. It just feels right.
