Winning F1 championship title this season 'not an impossible task', says Hamilton

August 14, 2011 - London

McLaren Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has said that he can still win the championship title despite being 88 points behind leader and reigning champion Sebastian Vettel.

"I am 88 points behind, but it is not an impossible task. It's a shame we didn't have another race straight away, but there's nothing we could do about that. There are 200 points up for grabs and I will enter all the races believing I can win them," the Daily Star quoted Hamilton, as saying.

"It is going to be an exciting run-down to the last race in Brazil and I can't wait for the next round in Belgium. Our car's pace is there right now as we have shown with our wins, mine in Germany with the fastest lap and Jenson's in Hungary."

"The car's on song because of our excellent qualifying pace at both," he added.

Vettel has 234 points from 11 of 19 races, while his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber has 149, Hamilton 146, Alonso 145 and Button 134.
