Hamilton won’t settle for second best

NO FEAR: Hamilton (PA)

WORLD CHAMPION elect Lewis Hamilton is setting his sights on finishing the season by winning the two remaining Grand Prixs and wrapping up his second title in style.

The 29-year-old Mercedes driver, who is 24 points clear of second-placed Nico Rosberg, said: “I want to win the world championship by winning, rather than finish fifth or wherever.

“I'm not coming to these last couple of races with a game plan. I want to win.”

Hamilton, who has been in dominate form this season winning 10 races to Rosberg’s four, said he had no fears going into the race and would not be drawn into criticising the double points scoring for the last race in Abu Dhabi.

“It's the same for everyone. This whole double points thing has always been a question. It is the way it is. I don't really know what to say about it”, said the Stevenage-born racer.

“I don't have any fears because I really feel like it has not been lucky or by mistake where I am today.”

He added: “I feel comfortable where I am. I'm going to do whatever I can do and whatever the result at the end of it is, it is the way it is.

“But I will know I did everything I could and I'm not going to look back and think I could have done this or that, and that's why I'm excited.”

Hamilton will be in action this weekend for the Brazilian Grand Prix, with qualifying on Saturday and the race on Sunday.
