Hamilton: I can win from back of the grid at Belgian GP

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton says that, top podium finish at the Belgian GP remains his goal on Sunday despite an engine penalty sending him to the back of the field.

Thursday the Brit also insisted that, he is not angry with Mercedes as he faces a difficult weekend at Spa.

Although rested after the summer break and preparing for the weekend in Belgium with his dogs, the Briton faces losing his championship lead due to a spate of grid penalties.

After earlier technical trouble, Hamilton has run through his allocation of five power units for the season and is likely to have multiple new components fitted at Spa.

“As far as I’m aware we will be taking the engine penalty this weekend,” he said on Thursday.

Mercedes confirmed that, adding that Hamilton will be “very close to the back” of the grid by Sunday afternoon.

“In terms of winning that is the goal, but it is going to be very, very hard,” said Hamilton, who is one victory shy of 50 career wins.

“I will do everything I can to minimise the impact that the penalty will have, and beyond that I plan to continue with the momentum I had before the break.”
