London: Former F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has said that it would be a `pain in the backside` to collect yet another runners-up trophy this weekend with Sebastian Vettel winning the grand prize.
According to the Mirror, the Mercedes ace revealed he was not interested in beating Fernando Alonso to runners-up spot in the drivers` championship.
Hamilton said that there was no glory in finishing second and number one was where he wanted to be.
Vettel now has an almost unassailable lead and is likely to win his fourth consecutive F1 world championship title.
We're building him (RvP) up now because of the World Cup. It’s a pity but we have to or he’ll never be fit.
