London: McLaren ace driver Lewis Hamilton has said his crash with Williams Pastor Maldonado was just a blip and he is still in this year championship title race.

For the third time in 13 months, Hamilton and Maldonado were involved in a major incident, with the McLaren star shunted into a wall by the Venezuelan on the penultimate lap of last Sunday``s European Grand Prix in Valencia.

Hamilton, who trails Ferrari``s Fernando Alonso by 23 points in the drivers`` standings ahead of next Sunday``s British Grand Prix, says he has put the latest collision behind him.

“``I``m just going to move forward. Sometimes you have to accept when things don``t go your way in racing,” a newspaper quoted Hamilton, as saying.

“As far as I``m concerned I``m still in the battle for the title and there``s still a long, long way to go. I``ve been massively con sistent all the way up to this point and in terms of my preparation and my approach I will continue to do the same,” he added.
