Lewis Hamilton insists he has complete faith in his McLaren team to make the right calls during the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday.
The 25-year-old had been vocal in his criticism immediately after last weekend's race in Australia of a decision to bring him in for a second pit stop, which ultimately saw his challenge for a podium finish fade away.
Hamilton eventually finished sixth, following a late collision with Mark Webber's Red Bull, while team-mate and reigning world champion Jenson Button took the honour of winning the first race of the season for McLaren.
It capped a frustrating weekend overall for the 2008 world champion but, having had time to discuss the situation with his team, he is adamant he will not question their decisions this Sunday.
"You have to rely on your team," said Hamilton. "When I am in the car I don't know exactly what is going on around me.
"For me, I am so passionate about the racing. My heart was seriously so into it (in Australia), and my adrenaline had sky-rocketed.
"I had just been taken out by another car, so you don't always say the right things when you get out but after sitting down with the guys I got a good understanding of why we did it.
"From that experience we will definitely take it forward into the next race and future ones."Reuse content
