Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton says he plans to win his fourth world drivers’ title in style by securing the Mexico Grand Prix this weekend.

The Brit is priced at 1.80 to win the race on Sunday, but he will be under pressure despite his big points advantage.

Hamilton currently leads the Drivers’ Championship by 66 points and a fifth-place finish will be enough for him to win the title ahead of Sebastian Vettel.

A fifth-place finish will also help Mercedes win their fourth consecutive Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship double but the former McLaren man wants to do it in style.

He is currently on a run of 22 consecutive points finishes and the 32-year-old has got his eyes set on an enjoyable weekend at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

“It definitely doesn’t change my position – I want to win it and I want to win it the right way,” said Hamilton.

“I thought the other day, I have no desire to come here and finish fifth and win the world championship while someone else stands on the top step.

“They always say you’re not as good as your last race, so every single race I want to continue to show what I’m capable of.

The dream would be to be standing on the top step this weekend having won the championship. That would be very much a proud moment.”

Vettel may not be able to stop Hamilton from winning the title but he will be doing all he can to win and he is priced at odds of 3.25 to win in Mexico.
