Lewis: Title fight a bit like poker

Lewis Hamilton believes his battle with team-mate Nico Rosberg for this year’s Drivers’ Championship is a lot more intense than his previous title fights.

With Mercedes having the best car on the grid this year, Hamilton and Rosberg have gone toe-to-toe in the battle for top honours and it is the latter who leads the standings by just 11 points with only eight races left.

It is a far cry from Hamilton’s two previous title fights in 2007 and 2008 when the then McLaren driver was facing a different challenge as his rivals Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa were driving for Ferrari.

Hamilton, who was beaten to the 2007 title by Raikkonen before winning in 2008, admits it’s a different kettle of fish this time around.
