Hamilton remains focused
British driver refuses to let failed protest hamper preparations
Lewis Hamilton insists the failure to get his points deduction overturned has not hampered his preparations for the Singapore GP.
Hamilton's McLaren team had protested after Hamilton was handed a retrospective 25-second penalty at the end of the Belgian Grand Prix which resulted in him being demoted from race winner to third.
However the International Court of Appeal ruled that the protest was inadmissible, meaning Hamilton's lead at the top of the championship standings remains just one point.
Hamilton, though, has insisted that he is looking ahead at the Singapore GP rather than looking back at what could have been.
The 23-year-old said: "It didn't really disrupt my week to be honest because I went straight to the airport and got on the plane.
"We went there and gave it our best shot, perhaps it wasn't the best result but we move on.
"It is all in the past now and we must focus on the next four races. We approach them with the same confidence as we have the last ones.
"We have come here no different to how we went to Monza and we are just going to try and do a good job this weekend.
"We are all in the unknown but we have come here to try and score as many points as we can.
"The key is to score as many as we can in the last four races and be consistent."
