McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton aiming to end 2011 season with better results – Formula 1 news
McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton is targeting to end the 2011 Formula 1 season with better results.
Hamilton said that he wants to perform really well in the last two rounds of the ongoing season and get great reward for everybody at Vodafone McLaren-Mercedes team as well.
The Brit also mentioned that he is aiming to achieve another victory in the last two rounds of the season.
The Woking-based outfit driver added that Red Bull Racing team and its driver Sebastian Vettel may have clinched both drivers’ and constructors’ championships, but he is still determined to end the 2011 Formula 1 season on a winning note for McLaren.
Apart from that, he talked about the upcoming Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and stated that he has some fantastic memories of the Yas Marina Circuit.
Hamilton commented, “I started from pole position there in 2009, and I led the race until I was forced to stop because of a brake issue. Last year, I finished second and set the fastest lap, so we head there looking to convert all that potential into a race
He went on to mention, “I think we've got every reason to be confident for Abu Dhabi. This circuit should really suit the characteristics of our car - we should be able to capitalise on the layout to maximise the benefit of DRS and KERS, both of which are
very strong on our car.”
Hamilton has suffered with a difficult year, with clashes with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, with his team-mate Jenson Button, Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi and Williams’ Pastor Maldonado. Most of his collisions with the drivers have resulted in penalties.
The 26-year-old driver has won two rounds in the season so far at China and Germany. In the recently held Indian race weekend, Hamilton struggled for his best possible finish after his contact with Massa. He took seventh position for McLaren at the end of
the Grand Prix.
After taking part in 17 rounds of the season, Hamilton is placed at the fifth position with 202 points in the 2011 drivers’ championship.
Let’s see how he manages the last two race weekends of the season in Abu Dhabi and Brazil.
