Lewis Hamilton out for blood at Spa in his 200th F1 grand prix
• Mercedes driver aims to close 14-point gap on Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel
• ‘Passion to win is stronger than ever’, says fired-up Hamilton
Rightly celebrated as one of the stone cold classics on Formula One’s calendar, Spa-Francorchamps is without doubt a drivers’ circuit. The fast corners and sweeping changes in elevation offer a combination of stern challenge and thrill ride; the best revel in both.
Lewis Hamilton can certainly count himself among them and it is apt he should be starting his 200th grand prix at Spa. Yet while he has acknowledged reaching the milestone, his real focus in the Ardennes is the title fight. Numbers do matter to the Mercedes driver but for now he is concerned only with the ones that separate him from Sebastian Vettel and he is very serious about it.
