Lewis Hamilton entering ‘attack mode’ in Formula 1 title race
Lewis Hamilton warns Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg that he is going into "attack mode" in the F1 title race
Lewis Hamilton has warned Nico Rosberg that he is going into “attack mode” in the race for the Formula 1 drivers’ championship title.
The Briton slashed Rosberg’s lead at the top of the standings to just four points with victory at the British Grand Prix on Sunday as the German was forced to retire with a gearbox problem.
We’ll draw a line under the last nine races and it’s attack mode
And Hamilton has told his Mercedes team-mate that he is ready to go all out attack in his bid to win a second world title.
“The pressure is high but I really feel that now we’re back,” said Hamilton.
“We’ll draw a line under the last nine races and it’s attack mode. Start again using my pace and the car’s pace.”
Hamilton admitted that he was bitterly disappointed by his qualifying campaign at Silverstone as he placed fifth.
“When you feel like the world is crumbling beneath you, your family and friends help pull you through – and the fans,” Hamilton said.
“I was just so disappointed in myself. I really had to pick up, pull my socks up and get on with it.”
