“I think this weekend, I don’t know, I’m here to have some fun this weekend.

“Yeah so I mean Nico, I think Nico’s been driving well this year, but I think people view it right now that he’s driving not as well, rather than maybe I’m driving better. And obviously from my point of view, I feel that this year I’ve taken a step forward with my qualifying performance and the way I approach the weekend”

STORY: Lewis Hamilton will be in it to win it on Sunday (November 1) as Mexico makes its return to the Formula One calendar after a 23-year absence.

With his third world championship secured in Texas last Sunday, along with his 10th victory of the season, the Mercedes driver says he intends to continue flat out for as long as he can.

“I think this weekend, I don’t know, I’m here to have some fun this weekend. I’ve been having fun all year, but it’s a little bit more of a relaxed weekend in that sense for me, but you know this is the first Mexican Grand Prix for 23 years so I want to win it. I want to be, a driver always wants to put their stamp on the first race in that territory, so that’s my, that’s my goal,” the Briton told Reuters in an interview on his first day in Mexico.

Hamilton is the first Briton to win successive championships and has dominated the season, leading from the very first race.

If his last win was controversial, with Hamilton banging wheels with team mate Nico Rosberg at the first corner in a move that pushed the German wide, he appeared unapologetic.

Hamilton said that those who also criticised Rosberg for not making more of a fight of it might be missing the point.

“I think Nico’s been driving well this year, but I think people view it right now that he’s driving not as well, rather than maybe I’m driving better. And obviously from my point of view, I feel that this year I’ve taken a step forward with my qualifying performance and the way I approach the weekend.

“I think it will continue as is, or he might get a bit stronger maybe, but I plan to be as strong as I am now for as long as I can.”
