Formula One drivers' title is my priority, says Lewis Hamilton
Monday 17 September 2012
Lewis Hamilton insists he will not let the rumours about his contract negotiations distract him from the pursuit of a second Formula One drivers' title with McLaren.
Hamilton, whose deal runs out at the end of the season, has been linked with a move to replace Michael Schumacher at Mercedes. After winning the Italian Grand Prix, Hamilton heads to Singapore this weekend 37 points behind Fernando Alonso, the championship leader.
"My focus is on trying to win this world championship," Hamilton said on a promotional visit to Mumbai. "I do have to have those things sorted out but I do have people in the background working on those contract negotiations."
