Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton says he will keep pushing across the final three races of the season as his team bids to secure second in the constructors’ championship.
Hamilton has not finished on the podium since the Belgian Grand Prix but insists that consistency is vital across the remaining three races, starting this weekend in Abu Dhabi.
Hamilton has claimed pole position twice at the Yas Marina circuit and won the race in 2011.
“The race in Abu Dhabi is always a fun weekend and one which I really enjoy,” he said.
“The circuit and the whole Yas Marina complex are so impressive and racing from the sunshine into the twilight is quite special. With three races left of the season, we are still pushing and there is a lot that our team can achieve in that period.”
“It’s all about consistency now and making sure that both Nico [Rosberg] and I score good points so that we can keep the other teams behind us. We’re up for the challenge.”
Team-mate Rosberg finished in second place in India and believes he can carry that momentum into Abu Dhabi.
“On the track, we will be looking to continue the pace and performance of the car that we saw in India and hopefully the result. It was a really positive weekend for me and I’m pleased that the team now has renewed momentum in our fight for second place,” he said.
