Formula 1 News: Hamilton Keeps Cool After 2nd Loss Vs Rosberg, Alonso Trains For China
With the 2016 Formula 1 season in full swing, Mercedes driver and reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton remained cool despite already losing to his teammate Nico Rosberg twice this season.Advertisement
Hamilton may have to watch out, Rosberg is definitely on fire! In case you weren’t tuning in to the final races of the 2015 Formula 1 season, the German driver has already won five races in a row. Moreover, his two wins during the start of the 2016 season also meant that Rosberg currently leads the driver standings. He now has 50 points while Hamilton trails behind with 33.
Nonetheless, it seems the reigning world champion “couldn’t care less” if Rosberg has been leading and winning. According to a recent report from Autosport, Hamilton remarked, “You win consecutively in a season. So five over two seasons doesn’t mean anything to me psychologically.”
Moreover, he stresses, “It’s just the two races.”
Even as he leaves Bahrain with a third place trophy, Hamilton believes in staying positive for the remainder of the season. Moreover, he believes there are more pole positions coming to him in the upcoming race events. Hopefully, this will lead to a checkered flag victory soon.
Meanwhile, it seems McLaren driver Fernando Alonso is wasting no time getting back to form in time for the upcoming China Grand Prix on April 17. Alonso was forced to sit out the Bahrain race after medics did not clear him following his accident during the Australian Grand Prix, which left the two-time world champion with a punctured lung and broken ribs.
With Alonso out, McLaren had asked Stoffel Vandoorne to take up Alonso’s seat in Bahrain. Alonso remained involved with the team in the pit garage. Following Bahrain, Alonso said he is now resting and doing his best to “get fit to be ready in China.” He also revealed he has returned to training and hopes he will be able to do some cycling and swimming soon enough.
