Despite failing to win a point at the European Grand Prix and having his lead at the top of the drivers championship sliced to just two points, Lewis Hamilton is still positive about his chances of winning the championship.
“With seven races left, there s still a long way to go,â€ Hamilton explained. “I still feel quite positive going into the next race. I am still leading the world championship, which I find quite amusing considering it was such a bad weekend. It just shows how hard everyone else is having to push to catch me up.â€
Alonso also fancies his chances of winning a third championship in a row. “In the next seven races I would not put any money on any driver,â€ he remarked. “Anyone can win because the races are a bit unpredictable.â€
