From BYRON YOUNG in New Delhi
LEWIS HAMILTON has targeted a hat-trick of wins to sign off from the toughest season of his Grand Prix career.
The 26-year-old is convinced he can win Sunday’s inaugural Indian Grand Prix and then add Abu Dhabi and Brazil to his list of victories.
“There’s three tracks coming up that I like and I’d love to win all three,” said the Vodafone McLaren racer.
“I feel positive coming into the weekend, knowing that we were competitive in the last race.”
But Hamilton openly admitted that he is still coming to terms with his break-up from Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.
“I’m just trying to keep my mind focused on business,” he said. “It’s never easy to go through tough times. They are sent to try you and it’s about how you pull through.
“I’ve got my family to help me and I feel pretty good. Nicole and I parted on good terms and we’re still friends.
“It’s something everyone goes through. Everyone has hard times in their life and they just deal with it.”
McLaren will spend part of today’s practice trying to solve the mystery front wing problem that prevented Hamilton hunting down Sebastian Vettel for victory at the last round in Korea.
