Hamilton ready to crank up pressure on leader Alonso in F1 driver’s championship

London, Sep 19(ANI): McLaren ace driver Lewis Hamilton is looking to exert more pressure on Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who is currently leading this season’s Formula One driver’s championship.

Hamilton has won two of the last three races to cut the Spaniard’s lead to just 37 points, while his McLaren team-mate Jenson Button won in Belgium.

The Brit has now set his sights on taking victory in Sunday’s night race around the Marina Bay circuit.

“We’re now inching closer to the finishing line and this is where it starts to get exciting. After winning the last three races of the European season, the whole team starts the final series of flyaways that will determine the outcome of this year’s championship,” the Sun quoted Hamilton, as saying.

“After winning in Hungary and Monza, I’m heading to Singapore full of positivity and optimism that I can take the title fight to Fernando,” he added. (ANI)
