The Brit, who has won 43 races but is still yet to win in 2016 and he struggle with poor starts at the two opening rounds of the season.
Lewis perfectly took both Australia and Bahrain pole position, but his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg went on to win both races and in doing so has taken a 17-point lead in the championship.
“I did not become a three-time world champion through being lucky,” Hamilton told German newspaper Auto Moto und Sport, who is now preparing for next week’s race in China, replied to those who have criticized him for his life outside the racetrack.
“You only have to look at the numbers and see my wins.
“Everyone has their own working methods. I get ready in my room and just like to take things easy when preparing.
“So, I prefer to read my emails every day and work on it intensely. That’s my technique and that’s a good feeling.”
