Lewis Hamilton aiming for another US win in F1
He’s also tired of Sebastian Vettel christening all the new tracks in recent years with victories for Red Bull.
Hamilton will start second Sunday. He acknowledged a love affair with the U.S., starting with his victory in Indianapolis five years ago.
Although the 2008 world champion will switch to Mercedes next season, Hamilton said he’d work hard for McLaren to help the team in the constructor’s championship. Red Bull leads, trailed by Ferrari and McLaren.
If he can help push McLaren into second, “I will be very happy with that,” Hamilton said.
KEEP IT CLEAN: F1 asked drivers to clean up their language during live broadcast interviews after Vettel and Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen said some choice words following the race in Abu Dhabi. Vettel jokingly dropped another expletive Saturday before the cameras were rolling.
Reminded by the post-qualifying news conference moderator about the no-swearing directive, Vettel acknowledged him and still did it anyway.
SIR JACKIE SMILES: Count former three-time Formula One champion Jackie Stewart among those impressed by the new Circuit of the Americas built for the return of the U.S. Grand Prix.
“It looks great,” Stewart said as he walked the paddock area while wearing a blue plaid cap that matched his plaid pants.
Stewart said he had toured only the track with an elevated view from a helicopter, but said he planned to get a ride around the course Saturday afternoon.
