Hamilton: ‘I deserved more from the last couple of races’

A reflective Lewis Hamilton thinks that he deserved more from the last couple of F1 races.

It has been suggested that tactical errors over his choice of tyres at the weekend’s Italian Grand Prix led to him only finishing seventh.

The Belgian Grand Prix, a week earlier, saw him stripped him of a thrilling victory after race stewards ruled that he had gained an unfair advantage by cutting a corner.

This verdict is set to be challenged by his McLaren team and unless it can be overturned the young Brit will only hold a one-point advantage over his nearest rival, Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, with just four races left this season.

Hamilton told the Daily Mail: "Morally speaking I’ve deserved more in the last couple of races. I’ll just keep on pushing."

Speaking about his thrilling surge up the field in the Italian race, he was quoted by the Press Association as saying: "I went forward, no one overtook me, which is always a nice thing coming out of a race.

In what resembled a coded warning to his championship rivals he added: "But then I very rarely do get overtaken."
