‘I am still fighting for this title’: Lewis Hamilton is not panicking just yet in his battle for Formula One glory with Max Verstappen… despite the Red Bull driver winning THREE of the last four races

Pressure is mounting on Hamilton, with former McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso backing Verstappen to win the title, but Hamilton said: ‘We are not even halfway through the season. Red Bull are continuing to take steps forward but I cannot get tied in that negative bubble of worrying. I will put all my energy into being as prepared as I can be.
