Lewis Hamilton has admitted he is desperate to get his hands on a second World Drivers’ Championship title.
The Briton landed his one and only title in 2008, his second season in Formula 1, with former team McLaren and Hamilton is keen to add to his collection.
The Mercedes star is currently 48 points adrift of current leader Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton has indicated that he doesn’t expect to take the top prize this term.
After an encouraging start with his new team the 28-year-old finally landed his first win for Mercedes in Hungary prior to the mid-season break.
At the start of the campaign Hamilton conceded he didn’t expect to take the title in 2013, having only just moved to Mercedes from McLaren, but the British star believes he can battle for the championship in the coming years with his new team.
He told Al Jazeera: “I hope there’s a world championship somewhere ahead. That’s what I’m working for every year, that’s why I keep that discipline, that’s why I train so much over the winter, that’s why I wake up every day and train.
“That’s why I put so much effort into travelling and that’s why you sacrifice so many small things, certain things in your life, and so you know I hope at some stage I get that second world championship.”
The next Grand Prix will take place on August 25 as the Formula 1 season resumes in Belgium.
