Hamilton vows: I'll be more on it in Austria
11 June 2014 – Lewis Hamilton says he will be 'more on it' in Austria next week and that what happened in the Canadian Grand Prix last weekend will only make Mercedes that much stronger and more determined.
Hamilton suffered his second retirement of the 2014 Formula 1 season in Montreal and while Rosberg also had problems, he managed to get his ailing car to the chequered flag and still finished in second place.
As a consequence, Hamilton now loses ground in the Drivers' Championship, with Rosberg extending his cushion from four points to 22.
"Before we had our problems [in Canada] I was on it, but then it all fell apart," Hamilton told the Press Association.
"I now just have to try and make things less difficult for myself in the next race. I just want to get ready for that next race. I have a lot of training planned and I'll be in the simulator, and the team will be flat out trying to understand and fix for the next race the issue we had. The guys at the factory will be analysing it and they will make an improvement.
"I did say to them, though, that while it wasn't a day we had all hoped for [in Canada], we have to take a step back and realise what an amazing job we have all done so far this season.
"We have to keep doing what we've been doing because a day like that will make us stronger as a team and we will learn from that."
"I will be on it for the next one," he added. "I'll be better."
"I'll be more on it," he pledged.
