Lewis Hamilton Confident of Retaining his F1 title

Lewis Hamilton Confident  of Retaining his F1 title

Lewis Hamilton beat Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel with two races to spare to clinch his fourth career world title.

LEWIS HAMILTON says Ferrari and Red Bull have no chance of stopping him winning the 2018 F1 title so long as he replicates his end-of-season form from this year.


Hamilton has now won three of the past four Drivers’ Championships and remains favourite to add another to his tally next term.

Both Ferrari and Red Bull are hoping to narrow the gap on the Mercedes car, while McLaren could be a contender with their new Renault engine.

“I think the worst thing was there were certain individuals who I spoke to later on and they’ be like ‘he didn’t do it on purpose surely’,” Hamilton told Sky Sports.

“And I’d be like ‘don’t you realise we’re both at the top of motorsport, F1, we both know how to drive a car in a straight line?’

“And this is like high up stewards who’d say this and then afterwards they’d say ‘maybe you’re right, maybe you’re right’. I’d be like ‘what race were you watching?'”

“How do you work harder when you feel you’ve worked harder than ever before? Well there are always areas you can work on.


“I don’t have all the answers yet but I definitely plan to be stronger next year.

“If you look at this year, the second phase of the season was solid. The start was not so.

“So, (I’m thinking) how can I convert the second half of the season into a whole season? That’s how I can be better.

“If I can do that no one has a chance (of beating me) in my mind.

Hamilton said the 2017 title race had been his biggest challenge yet.

“My whole mindset was there is a four-time world champion we’re competing against. There’s no-one else in my view or in my mirrors, it’s just him and it’s going to take everything to extract everything from the car weekend in, weekend out.


“If I don’t he will and also he’s going to be consistent because he’s a four-time world champion So I’ve got to be even better Got to try to raise the bar every time.”

The FIA had held an investigation into the incident to determine “whether further action is necessary”. Later it had determined no further action was to be taken against Vettel.
