Hamilton feeling positive
British ace praises consistency of team

Lewis Hamilton believes McLaren are getting "stronger and stronger" as he races towards his first-ever Formula One world title.

The British ace came third at Singapore on Sunday to extend his lead in the World Championship going into the final three GPs in Japan, China and Brazil.

He took full advantage of nearest rival Felipe Massa finishing only 13th on Sunday to now sit seven points clear at the top.

While knowing nothing is certain after narrowly missing out on the title last year, Hamilton - who is now 2/7 on with Sky Bet to win the championship - is full of confidence as the season reaches its climax.

He said: "We started the year feeling really strong and we have just kept developing that. I'd say now the team is the most positive and together it's ever been.

"Since the middle of the season, we've got the car in such a sweet-spot that it's been competitive at every race. I think Singapore showed just what we could do. We didn't really put a foot wrong."
Credit

He added: "I've got to give credit to the engineers and strategists for helping me to save fuel during the first safety car period. The guys in the garage pulled off two perfect pitstops. What more can I ask for?

"We're just getting stronger and stronger. We all want this so much that every race just pulls us closer and closer together.

"I can't really describe that feeling of team-work, but it's incredibly strong. It's what keeps us all going."

As Massa could not score, Hamilton coasted to a comfortable third place instead of pushing Williams' Nico Rosberg for second and potentially crashing out.

He added: "The six points we got on Sunday were pretty important to our title chances.

"We're ahead now in both world championships and have to keep focused during these next three races.
Consistency

"I've said before that consistency is what will win this world championship, and I feel really pleased that we did that in Singapore.

"We only finished third, but we couldn't really have asked for more from that result, and I didn't want to risk throwing those points away with any kind of move as you never know what might happen.

"We also made all the right decisions at the right moments in the race, and the car still feels fantastic to drive.

"All I can do is take one race at a time while keeping one eye on the final result at the end of the year."

Senna in F1 talks
Toro Rosso linked with legend's nephew


Bruno Senna believes he stands a good chance of entering Formula One next season, although it may be in a test driver role.

Senna, the nephew of the late Ayrton Senna, has been hotly tipped to take a role with Toro Rosso next season, perhaps even as a race driver.

However, he says STR is not the only team he's been talking to.

"Obviously, I had a great season in GP2, it was a season with a few highs and few lows but good enough to finish second," Senna told Reuters.

"And I guess it gave me good possibilities to go to Formula One next year.

"We have been speaking with quite a few teams and there is great interest from a few of them.

"So there are a few opportunities as a race driver, a few as a test driver... but there is a lot of competition and I need to come ahead of the competition right now on the negotiations and see if I can get a race drive."

He added: "Toro Rosso is one of the possibilities in Formula One, not the only one, but it can make the whole difference and for sure he (Berger) still gives me great advice and helped all the way.".

Ferrari - Kimi must start scoring
No points from four races for mis-firing Finn

Luca di Montezemolo has urged Kimi Raikkonen to up his game in order to play a support role for Felipe Massa, as the Brazilian chases down this year's World title.

With three races remaining Ferrari are second in the Championships and in desperate need of Raikkonen to start scoring points if they are to retain the titles.

The Finn has not scored a single point in the last four races, a key reason why Ferrari now trail McLaren in the Constructors' Championship.

However, the Scuderia also need Raikkonen to start scoring in order to take points off McLaren's Lewis Hamilton and help his own team-mate Massa win this year's Drivers' title.
Extraordinary

"I'm sure Kimi has understood this moment," di Montezemolo told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper.

"Besides, he is not a rookie nor a former star: we are talking about the reigning World Champion, a driver who, despite a broken exhaust in Magny-Cours, did an extraordinary race. Massa told me that without that problem he would never have beaten him.

"He went quick at Spa too, but was unlucky when running off in a section where there was no run-off. By contrast Hamilton went off but was able to rejoin.

"On top of that Kimi is brave and always works for the team. In the last three races he'll have to demonstrate to everyone the effects of being a champion by helping the team and Massa. It's clear we need him at 100 per cent."

Kimi - definitely not my year

Champ without a point from last four races


After once again failing to score points on a Sunday, never mind claim the win, Kimi Raikkonen has conceded that his title is lost.
The reigning World Champion has failed to score a single point in the last four grands prix while his last race win was back in April in Spain.
His disappointing run of form has seen the Finn all but mathematically drop out of this year's Championship race, trailing Lewis Hamilton by 27 points with only 30 to play for.
"It's difficult to find the right words: racing at night or during the day, this is definitely not my year," he said just days after his latest retirement which came on Sunday in Singapore when he crashed out of the inaugural F1 night race.
"I hit the wall when there were just a couple of laps left. True, I wasn't racing for the win, but for some very important points for the team; and then it ended like at Spa, with another DNF.
"It seems as if the more we try to improve the situation the less we get in the end. At this point I can just hope for a weekend where everything goes in the right direction.
"Once again we had the right speed at Singapore, but not when it was really necessary. The fastest race laps aren't worth anything, if you don't combine them with the situation when they really count.
Dark period

"Obviously I'm really sad about this situation. I can't explain this dark period and there's nothing I can do to change what happened. We have to look ahead, to the last three races."
The Finn's lack of points has also been largely responsible for Ferrari losing the lead in the Constructors' Championship. The Scuderia trail McLaren by one point after both Raikkonen and Felipe Massa failed to bag points in Singapore.
Raikkonen, though, is determined to make it up to the team by ending the season on a high note - and nothing is higher than winning.
"We know that we've got what it takes to fight for victory in the last three GPs," he said.
"Let's hope that I'll finally have a smooth weekend, from Friday to Sunday evening."

Stewart's backing for Massa

Former champion tips Brazilian to lift the world title


Sir Jackie Stewart reckons Felipe Massa can come back from his Singapore disappointment to win this year's world title.
Massa dropped a further six points behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton on Sunday when a botched pit stop cost him the race win and any chance of scoring points.
However, former F1 champion Stewart has urged Massa, who is now seven points behind Hamilton, not to become despondent, as he believes the Ferrari driver can still claim the crown.
"Felipe is the most improved driver this year, he has had no peaks and valleys," said Stewart.
"Last year he was very fast one day and the next time not so fast, but this year he has been consistently good.
"I am a big admirer of Felipe's driving, and he can still win the Championship. Ferrari in the dry still have the edge of the McLaren, and in the wet McLaren have the edge on Ferrari.
"I think with three races to go, there are still 30 points to be won or lost, so it is open."

Williams stick with same team

Rosberg and Nakajima to stay on for 2009


Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima have been retained by Williams for next year's Formula One Championship.
Also staying with the team is German youngster Nico Hulkenberg - leader of the Formula 3 Euroseries - who will continue to act as test driver for a second straight year.
Team principal Frank Williams was delighted to maintain his current driving stable and believes all three men have bright futures in the sport.
"I am delighted we are able to maintain continuity with our drivers going into 2009," Williams stated.
"Nico Rosberg continues to be one of the most capable drivers in the sport. Kazuki is getting stronger all the time and has more to offer and Nico Hulkenberg is developing well."
Rosberg, who has been driving for Williams since 2006, celebrated a career-best second place last weekend at the Singapore Grand Prix. It was the German's second career podium after a third at the Australian GP at the beginning of the season.
He finished 17th overall in 2006, ninth last year and currently sits 12th in the championship this time around with a total of 17 points.
Nakajima made his F1 debut in the final race of 2007 and has taken points in four of the 15 races so far this year, leaving him 15th with nine points.

Default Ferrari addresses F60's glitches

Ferrari engineers are addressing a number of technical issues on its new F60 after the team admitted it had some “small problems” during the car’s initial shakedown.

Ferrari became the first team to launch a 2009-spec Formula 1 car on Monday, rolling out a KERS-equipped F60 at Mugello in Italy.

In a meeting on Tuesday, attended by Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, the team’s engineers began solving the F60’s glitches as part of the first steps in the car’s development programme.

The F60’s next track appearance will be at the Portimao test circuit in Portugal where it will come face-to-face with the 2009 offerings from McLaren, Renault, Toyota and Williams.
The Scuderia is eager to make the most of its track time before the in-season testing ban restricts development of the new car.

Chief aerodynamicist Nikolas Tombazis believes success will rest on improving the car quickly before the start of the season.

“Many rules, as far as the aerodynamics are concerned, are completely new,” Tombazis said at the Ferrari launch.

“The speed of development will be the main issue.

“Whoever knows how to develop faster will be better than the others.

“We can work on the development in the Fridays at every GP.

“Before the season there's still some good margin and if we're ahead at the first race, it means that we can keep our cool."

Tombazis added that the F60 will not only be much improved by the first race but will also look very different compared to the car that debuted at Mugello.

"The F60 will be very much overhauled for the first GP,” he said.

“We want to resolve all the issues as far as the mechanics and the reliability are concerned.

“We also want to maximise the aerodynamic development.

“I can confirm that also visibly the car will be really different at the first race."
