Hamilton pleased race alongside with Rosberg

Published

Lewis Hamilton says that he is pleased work with his best-friend Nico Rosberg at Mercedes for next season, also he added that work 100% to beat that other driver.

2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton is exit from McLaren at the end of the year following a long-season working at the Woking based squad.

Hamilton took four top podium places in this season, but he failed to set drivers’ title following mostly he retired from the race due to McLaren’s inconsistency and also technical failure.

Even as his new team Mercedes also struggled entire this season, they took a single top podium at Chinese Grand Prix, Mercedes disappointed with technical and development problems, final few races they are also struggled with new exhaust design.

“I haven’t seen the Mercedes team, I won’t link up with them till January but Nico lives in the same building as me. We were team-mates back in 2000 while racing go-karts,” Hamilton told ESPNSTAR.com.

“We’re actually best friends. I think it was about 13 to 16, we became good friends from back then. We always said to ourselves how cool it would be if we were team-mates one day in Formula 1 and here we are, driving together for the 2013 season now.”

“When I’m on the track and I’m racing along someone and I have the speed, I have to work 100% to beat that other driver. But there’s not a second driver that I have faced that I felt was better than me. I felt like I might have made mistakes that I need to improve on. I might feel like other drivers might have the better car or a better race then but I never feel that they are better than me.

“I train hard in everything I do – go-karting, football, squash. My brother beats me at computer games but that’s okay, he’s young and he’s my brother. In my sport, it’s not like golf where it’s all about the competitor whereas I have to work in a team. Sometimes you have to put yourself aside and think about what’s best for the team as a whole,” he said.

“I go back on Friday to speak to the whole team, [to] about a thousand people. Just to say thank you for all the hard work that they’ve done and to wish them all the best and [that] I appreciated their efforts,” he said.

“I know I’ll compete against them but obviously it will always be where I grew up and I’ll always look back and even if I’m competing against them, and they’re successful, I’ll be happy for them.”
