With his second DNF in a row, McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton has admitted his title chances have taken a massive blow as he slips into third place.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注The Brit had a coming together with Mark Webber on lap 35 of 61 after the second safety car. The incident saw Hamilton suffer his second suspension failure in a row.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注His five point deficit to leader Mark Webber after Monza, grew to 20 points as he dropped behind race winner Fernando Alonso. With just four races remaining (possibly three if Korea doesn’t go ahead), the 25-year-old isn’t losing faith in securing the title, but admitted he’d have to fight hard to regain the lead.
“It’s a tough call,” he told the Guardian. “There are still four races but I couldn’t have expected a worse two races, especially at this crucial point of the year.
“Twenty points is massive. I really just have to keep my head down and hope.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注“I will keep fighting to the end but we are a long way behind now. It will be a hard struggle for the next four races. If I’m honest I am not really thinking about the championship. I’ve got to just enjoy the rest of the season and what happens happens.”
