Lewis Hamilton has a comfortable lead of 36 points in the championship, and it seems that no one else but Valter Botas is threatened. Therefore, it would be enough in Austria to keep it close and collect the maximum number of points that will be offered without unnecessary risk taking. However, such an approach is strongly rejected.
One of the journalists at the press conference after qualifying wondered whether Hamilton was beginning to think about the title and how to get it. Hamilton he replied with a smile: "You have not been here long, are you? You do not know me."
"I always try to have a balanced attitude," he continued, after the laughter in the room sank. "Aggressive and conservative at the same time, of course I want to fight for victory. That's always my goal – nothing more and nothing less."
"It will not be easy to stand behind Ferrari and overtake it. In my opinion, they were very, very fast throughout the weekend, but of course I will do it all.
