(Mercedes AMG F1 Team)
Mercedes AMG F1 Team's Lewis Hamilton has stated that he needs five 'perfect race's' if he is to win this years Formula One world championship. The English driver took the championship lead following his victory at the Singapore night race. It is the first time since the Spanish Grand Prix that Hamilton has lead the championship.
Hamilton has now taken two consecutive victory's following his wins at the Italian and Singapore Grand Prix. The 2008 world champion has now won seven Grand Prix this season which is two more then he won that year.
Hamilton has insisted that he is not getting carried away and that is taking it 'just one race at a time'. Speaking following the race, Hamilton commented:
'Momentum is not something I generally think about because it can be snatched away straight away. Look at Nico, Today, I really felt that I covered all the areas and did a solid job.'
Hamilton was disappointed that he wasn't able to have a fair fight with Nico Rosberg following the German's retirement from the race.
Rosberg will hoping that he be back up to speed at the next race in Japan is just under two week's time in Japan. It is a race that the German has never won. The Suzuka circuit should suit the Silver Arrows as it is an extremely fast and flowing circuit which features the only finger of eight layout on the Formula One calendar.
