Hamilton not partying just yet

By on

With only two races to go, Lewis Hamilton is very close to win his first World Championship title as he now has a twelve point lead over team mate Fernando Alonso, who crashed out of the race today, and a seventeen point lead over Kimi Raikkonen. Hamilton, however, remains focussed and won't go off partying just yet.

Lewis Hamilton said: "Obviously it's a big boost in terms of confidence in my drive to be World Champion. But we still have two races left, and anything can happen. The key is just to try to keep it on the track. I hope Fernando's OK – I saw that it was him. I looked on the screen and he looked like he was OK. It's good for me that I've managed to pull that sort of gap.

At the Nurburgring I had that similar sort of incident and lost 10 points there, so I'm very fortunate that I've been able to gain those back. We're still pretty close, so we've got two races, so we need to knuckle down. I won't be going partying tonight."
