Mexico City, Nov 1 (IANS) Newly crowned Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton says that winning three drivers’ titles hasn’t satisfied his appetite and, on the contrary, has left him hungry for more!
“Winning three titles is amazing! But it is also strange that now that it has happened, I come to this race and I have the same hunger as before,” Hamilton, who is currently here for the Mexican Grand Prix, was quoted as saying by formula1.com.
“I want to win! Of course, I set new targets for next year. There are a lot of other things outside the car that I am planning. I will race like I always do.”
The Briton won his last two championships in Mercedes in 2014 and 2015 while his first title came while driving a McLaren in 2008. He has also helped Mercedes to clinch the constructors’ title the last two years.
The 30-year-old now has the same number of championships as his idol, the legendary Ayrton Senna.
“I can hardly remember the first time that I watched him but I guess I was four or five years old and honestly I can hardly remember what happened last week! Probably that is what happens to the one who is in the middle of the action,” said Hamilton.
“Of course, I watched him in whatever he was doing, watching and analysing how he was going about things – and yes, the fascinating thing about him was his driving style – the way he drove. I admired that. But I am Lewis and I do things differently!”
