Hamilton wants to avoid battles with Rosberg
Sunday 04th May 2014, 18:26 by TF1T Staff
Lewis Hamilton doesn't want a repeat of the Bahrain Grand Prix drama, which saw him racing wheel-to-wheel with team-mate Nico Rosberg throughout the race for the lead.
The Briton - who's won the last three races - is hoping to avoid any close battles with the German, despite it pleasing the fans, and says he'll try to repeat what he did in Malaysia and China where he opened up a big lead to those behind.
"Nico will be massively quick at every race we go to," Hamilton is quoted as saying by Autosport.
"I was determined to make sure that in China we were not close, like we were at the last race [in Bahrain]. It was definitely feeling a bit more like it was in Malaysia.
"I am going to keep on working and keep with the approach I have, because it is working perfectly for me."
When asked if he was confident he's got the measure of Rosberg, considering he's beaten him at the last three races, he said: "He is still leading the championship, isn't he?"
"In sports, it is all a psychological game," he added. "So of course, getting good results you cannot measure what effect that has on people. But I know how positive it is on me."
