Hamilton not taking third title for granted
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.
