Lewis Hamilton's victory in the Russian Grand Prix has moved him one step closer to achieving a record sixth Formula One Drivers' Championship title - yet the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Team driver is keeping focused; and not looking past the next race; the upcoming Japanese Grand Prix.
Lewis's victory in Sochi, plus the bonus point for setting the fastest lap, moves him 73 points clear of his Silver Arrows teammate, Valtteri Bottas, who was second in Russia while Ferrari's Charles Leclerc is 107 points behind with only five races remaining.
When quizzed about his focus, and whether he was already dreaming of securing a sixth title, Lewis said: "I just don't try to think about it. It’s not that it's difficult, it's pretty easy just to focus on the task in hand. Just focusing on trying to be the best I can be each weekend, one race at a time and making sure I'm delivering at a high rate."
"What's really impressive is to see how we're fighting against the Ferraris, who have got great pace, but some of the other drivers are really performing so well too. It's one of the best years I've seen the drivers perform in terms of outright performances; so it means that everyone is having to raise their bar, including myself."
