Hamilton seeks consistency

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton says he is taking a new approach – aimed at scoring regular points.

"Last year taught me the value of consistency. It's no use chasing a great result if you can't follow it up the following week," he said.

The Briton, who set a new record by finishing on the podium in his first nine races during his debut in 2007, added: "I didn't win a race until the sixth round but I was in the hunt for the title all through the year."
