Lewis Hamilton hoping for strong performance at "second home race"

Lewis Hamilton isn't getting distracted by the title fight as the 2016 Formula One season winds down.

The reigning champion currently sits 33 points adrift of team mate Nico Rosberg in the standings with just four races remaining but the former McLaren man just wants to focus on those final races.

"We've got four races left to make the most of it and that's exactly what I plan to do," Hamilton said. "It's just about hitting every race weekend as hard as I can, going all out for every win and seeing what happens from there. I'll be holding nothing back out there."

Hamilton has savoured victory in the United States on four occasions, having triumphed at the Circuit of the Americas in 2012, 2014 and 2015, as well as at Indianapolis in 2007.

Hamilton is a four time winner of the United States Grand Prix, triumphing once at Indianapolis and three times at Circuit Of The Americas, and it's a race he describes as a "second home race".

"I've got some great memories from Austin, with three wins from four races and, of course, the title win last year," he said. "That was one of the highlights of my career, no doubt."

"It's almost like the American fans have adopted me as their own, so I'll try to channel all of that positive energy into this weekend."
