Hamilton keen to sort out F1 future with McLaren early on in the year

Published

on

2008 world champion presently focused on preparations for the 2012 F1 season, Hamilton admits that he would like to get his deal situation set on early on in this season.

Hamilton is out of contract at the end of this season and, while it is likely he will stay at McLaren, there have been frequent rumours about a potential switch to Red Bull Racing ever since he held a secret meeting with Christian Horner at last year’s Canadian GP.

“At the moment the focus is on the preparation we have coming up for the season,” Hamilton said.

“Probably after the first couple of races it’s something we will probably want to get out of the way. We can then focus on the rest of the year without the team being concerned and without it being something hanging around, so then you guys (the media) won’t have to ask questions about it.

“So I’ll try to get that out of the way at some stage, probably in the earlier part of the year rather than later.”

The Brit is confident that 2012 will bring him more success.

“I want to win every race. I think I can,” he asserted. I think I’ve the ability to. If the car is where we hope there’s no reason why we can’t do that.

“The only thing that ever gets in your way is your own mind and your own insecurities or obstacles that you put in your way. The most important thing is to put those things aside and to overcome them, and I think I have.

“So I feel right. Standing right in front of you I feel stronger than I was a few months ago particularly, but even more so than I was last year at the start of the year.”
