Formula 1 – Hamilton not giving up on title

Lewis Hamilton is confident that he can still overturn Sebastian Vettel's healthy 25-point lead in the Formula 1 drivers championship this year. The 32-year-old British driver slipped further behind the German in the standings on Sunday, despite battling to a seventh-placed finish from 13th on the grid after being knocked out of qualifying on Saturday ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix. Vettel overtook Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen to claim his third race win of 2017 and now sits the equivalent of a full race win ahead of Hamilton points wise. But with 14 races remaining this season, Hamilton is hoping Mercedes can turn things around and get him challenging for a fourth career title, starting at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal on 11th June which he is 6/5 to win with bet365. "The war is not over. It's a marathon not a sprint," he told Sky Sports News HQ. "We can take it on the chin and move forward. The car was still a real handful and not where it should be. A lot of analysis will go into it over the next two weeks."
