I'm still leading by five points - Hamilton

By on

Championship leader, Lewis Hamilton, remains optimistic after his setback during the Turkish Grand Prix this weekend. Hamilton was hit by a right-front tyre puncture and dropped to fifth place. Team mate Fernando Alonso benefited from this situation as he closed the gap from seven to five points. The rookie driver remains positive though, saying: "It was just a little bit of a problem. You always have setbacks. I'm still leading by five points. It is not over."
