'Gloves-off' for Hamilton in title bid

Lewis Hamilton has kept the disappointment of his exit at the Singapore Grand Prix behind him and will approach the next race in Japan impervious in his bid for the title this year.

The McLaren driver, who has signed for Mercedes next season, is 52 points behind championship leader Fernando Alonso but with six races to go, the British driver has set his outlook towards optimism.

“In terms of the championship, there’s nothing to really be gained by analysing the points tables, from now on, it’s simply gloves-off,” Hamilton said. “As in Singapore, I’ll come out fighting, I’ll just be hoping for a better result."

Suzuka will host the 15th round of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix, at a track which teammate Jenson Button described as one which "puts hair on your chest"

“When I first raced here in 2009, I couldn’t believe a place like this could still exist in Formula 1 – it still feels like a proper old-school circuit,” Hamilton noted. “It doesn’t have the polish or finesse of an ultra-modern track – but is all the better for it. It’s fantastically quick, too, and very difficult to master. It’s an unforgiving place.”
