Lewis Hamilton makes surprising Sebastian Vettel comments ahead of French Grand Prix

Photo/Claudio Lavenia/Mark Thompson/Getty Images  Lewis Hamilton has revealed he doesn’t take any notice of the mistakes of his rivals such as Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel. Mercedes has won all seven Grand Prix of the season so far. The five-time world champion has taken five of those victories. “I don’t know, I don’t really look too much,” he told Racer. “I don’t compare myself to other people so I don’t look to others or their faults or anything. I just look to really try and take a lot of pride in my work and particularly my track record of not making mistakes, which I’ve managed to get myself into a really good place and deliver minimal faults in race weekends and races. “I had a small hiccup on Friday (in Canada) but was able to pull it back on Saturday and then throughout the weekend, so that’s a real, real focus. 21 races, every single point counts — even seven points, or three points, it adds up, so I take a lot of pride in that. It’s all great being quick, having quick drivers, but if you can be an all-around driver, work well outside the car, but also in the car, you have things that perhaps others are not able to put together, it makes your value go up.” Hamilton is focused on getting the absolute most out of his Mercedes car even if they are not as strong as their rivals. He added: “What I can say is the races have ben really, really strong, really consistent, and even on weekends where we’ve not had the car to really win, I’ve been able to put it right there with the front-runners. My goal on the race weekend is to do the best job I can for the team but to extract above and beyond.” The race will take place on Sunday, June 23 in Circuit Paul Ricard, France.
