Hamilton warns Red Bull don’t wind me

Published

Lewis Hamilton disregards Red Bull Racing’s team Principal Christian Horner’s prediction that McLaren’s Jenson Button is biggest opponent to Sebastian Vettel’s Championship. Recently Christian Horner says that Jenson Button is probably main rival of the 2012 F1 season.

“It’s the first time I’ve heard of [the remarks] but they definitely don’t wind me up,” Hamilton told the BBC. “There are a lot of opinions, and everybody has their right to an opinion, but it doesn’t really affect me. It doesn’t really matter at the end of the day when I go out and do the job.”

In last season first time that Hamilton was beaten by a team-mate Jenson Button in an entire the season. Hamilton struggled in last season with his own mistake and some incidents with Massa.

“Losing to Jenson didn’t really bother me. If it had been a case where we had been fiercely competitive throughout the year it would have been quite tough to deal with. But knowing it was a year where I threw away points, made very silly mistakes – sometimes a little unfortunate, but it was just a shocking year – I wasn’t really too devastated by it.

“I’ve drawn a line under it because at the end of the day he didn’t win the world championship, so it could have been even worse. But there are still many years ahead, and I don’t plan on [what happened last year] being the case this year.”

“There’s no point saying whether I should have done better. Of course, given my own expectations, I would have liked to have achieved more and have done better. But the journey I’ve had is the one that has been mapped out for me, and I would say the learning curve has been a steep one. I’m only 27 so if I’m to race as long as Michael [Schumacher] is racing, then I’ve still quite some time on my side. Given that, I definitely feel as if I can win more titles. My commitment to that has never really changed.”
