Hamilton still hungry

The 34-year-old is now tantalisingly close to matching Michael Schumacher's all-time record of seven world championships.

Hamilton admits he is still motivated by titles.

"Of course I'm looking for more titles. Next year will be closer than ever, and that turns me on. I think in life you can dream and have aspirations for the future, but it's also important to live in the moment," he said.

Ross Brawn, F1's sporting boss, suggested to the Daily Mail newspaper that rumours of a potential Ferrari switch for Hamilton might have some substance.

"Lewis may decide he wants a new challenge - he might go to another team and help that team succeed. How many titles is enough?" he said.
