Hamil­ton not tak­ing third ti­tle for granted

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Lewis Hamil­ton could clinch his third world cham­pi­onship at the Cir­cuit of the Amer­i­cas this week, but he in­sists that he still doesn’t see re­tain­ing his For­mula 1 crown as a done deal just yet.

“I’m go­ing into this next race with the same ap­proach I’ve had all year,” he in­sisted. “I’ve learned from ex­pe­ri­ence that noth­ing is ever done un­til it’s done in this sport.

“I won’t be tak­ing any­thing for granted go­ing into the week­end,” he added.

An out­right race win in Austin would be his tenth of the sea­son and more than enough to put the mat­ter of the ti­tle be­yond doubt. Hamil­ton cer­tainly comes into the next round of the For­mula One sea­son with a good record in the United States Grand Prix, hav­ing won the event three times in the past - the first at In­di­anapo­lis Mo­tor Speedway in 2007 and then two of the most re­cent three out­ings at COTA.
