Hamilton rules out gifting Bottas a win

Sebastian Vettel Italian GP 2018

Hamilton, who was gifted a win by Bottas in Russian Federation after the 29-year-old moved over at the request of his team, said he wouldn't do so because Bottas wouldn't want to win a race in such a manner, given it's not decisive for the championship.

Now, with the announcement of a Vietnamese Grand Prix being added to the calendar from 2020, Lewis Hamilton has expressed his concern that the season is becoming unbearably long.

"I'm someone who really loves racing but the season is long".

While the drivers' title crown has now been wrapped up by Hamilton, his season is by no means over, with Mercedes still fighting for the constructors' championship - and they know a fifth successive double championship will be celebrated in Brackley if chief rivals Ferrari fail to outscore them by 13 points at Interlagos. It's a lot of commitment for all of us and a lot of time away from families, and the seasons are getting longer and the off time is getting shorter. "I want to win by winning the race myself". "That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time". The turnaround is so short, you start preparing for your next season often as soon as the season is done. So, given Mercedes are guaranteed to win more races than Ferrari then the Silver Arrows need just 31 points to secure the title.

Lewis Hamilton is not planning to orchestrate a victory for teammate Valtteri Bottas at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend if the two drivers find themselves leading the race. "We're trying to win", he told reporters.

And while Hamilton confirmed ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix that Mercedes has made progress in understanding its slump, he conceded its problem wasn't fully resolved.

The musician's preference of living in IN and Ryan's affection for New York City reportedly led to the break up. The actress took to her Instagram on Thursday, November 8, to share the news in a cheeky post.

"The team are not going to make that call", Hamilton added.

"Germany was especially painful, where Vettel could have won, but lost the full 25 points".

But mindful of Mercedes' determination to finish the season as constructors' champions, and aware that Ferrari closed the gap to the Silver Arrows in both U.S. and Mexico, Hamilton is adamant his commitment will be absolute.

"There's a drivers' championship, but if you go to any team they're probably going to say this is more important for them - the constructors' championship more than the drivers".

"Some of it's still a mystery, but there's a lot of areas that we've understood", Hamilton said.
