Hamilton: Target for podium finishes in 2013 F1 with Mercedes



Lewis Hamilton entertained the thousands of people, at Malta International Airport with a McLaren demonstration in MP4-26 F1 car on an airport taxiway.

The Brit Hamilton, who will be leaving the McLaren team he has been connected to since the age of 13, will be driving for Mercedes 2013 F1 season.

Times of Malta reported that, 2008 world champion was on stage just after 10.30am near the Lufthansa hangar to present the President a cheque for €30,000 from Vodafone for the Community Chest Fund.

“Everyone has to have a change,” he said, when asked by the local media about his decision to leave.

“It is about growing, doing something different, learning to communicate with new people. I know what I am doing,” he insisted.

Quizzed further during his press conference, Mr Hamilton acknowledged that it will be “very tough” to win the championship next year, but he expects to make a big impact when rule changes which should favour Mercedes come into effect in 2014.

“We all have to takes risks in life, the target next year has to be podium finishes.” he said.
