"Yes, I definitely don't want to win if it's given to me", he said.

"I'm hoping this weekend we can get the vehicle into the right place and fight the guys, and the Red Bulls and Ferraris who have seemed to come back more into shooting range".

This season has 21 races, as does 2019, but Formula One has also been talking to Miami for a US street race and Zandvoort in the Netherlands about a return to the coastal circuit last visited in 1985.

"It is not always the case you find all the solutions", Hamilton said, "so I am confident everyone has worked as hard as they can to rectify it and push forward but it might take this race and even the next race before we fully understand it".

"I am someone that really loves racing, but the season is long, it takes a big commitment from all of us, and it is a long time away from our families". The turnaround is so short, you start preparing for your next season often as soon as the season is done.

"Getting your mind turned".

Lewis Hamilton admits that Mercedes are still wrestling with the "mystery" over their sudden loss of performance in Mexico as they look to wrap up constructors' championship glory at the Brazilian Grand Prix. "That's very hard. Then you have to find a way of switching off and recovering at the same time".

Florida, Georgia brace for possible recounts, run-off amid razor-thin midterm results
In a news conference, Scott claimed Broward County announced there were 634,000 ballots cast on Election Day. Republicans "easily won" in Broward County, Mr Trump said, citing no evidence.

To allow him to drop that guard, Hamilton and Bottas must out-score Ferrari's pair of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen by 13 points, but this season has seen them achieve that only twice so far in 19 attempts.

Both know, too, that rivals Ferrari, whose record of six teams' titles from 1999 to 2004 may be under threat, enjoyed a resurgence in Texas and Mexico that saw them out-perform Mercedes, restricting their advantage to 55 points with two races remaining.

"For sure he won it", he said.

"It makes no difference..."

Vettel has missed out on the championship twice in the last two years despite having a vehicle capable of challenging rivals Mercedes for victories.

"There's a drivers' championship, but if you go to any team they're probably going to say this is more important for them - the constructors' championship more than the drivers".

Hamilton is hoping he can bounce back to competitiveness this weekend, after two races in which Mercedes have struggled for pace. "He wants to win in his own way".
