Hamilton Enjoying 'favourite Battle' In F1

With Lewis Hamilton having already secured the Formula One world championship, the Briton could afford to be relaxed in the buildup to the season finale this weekend in Abu Dhabi and the Mercedes driver was more than happy to engage in some verbal sparring with his title rival Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton took the championship in Mexico having won nine races to Vettel’s five but for much of the season, the pair were engaged in a tight battle. However, while they have enjoyed some close racing only two passes have been made on the track against each other – both by Hamilton.

At the press conference at Yas Marina, the 32-year-old said he could not recall his favourite passing move and Vettel interjected. “There isn’t much to remember when you don’t have to pass that many people,” the Ferrari driver said, referencing the advantage Hamilton’s Mercedes supposedly enjoyed, although that had been far from the case over the season as a whole.

“I passed you a couple of times,” Hamilton shot back. “They were the exciting ones. The closer races we had were the ones I enjoyed the most.”
