Hamilton chasing second place

Hamilton chasing second place

Lewis Hamilton has set his sight on second place in the Constructors' Championship, but he knows only consistency will get Mercedes there.

After losing ground to rivals Ferrari in the race for second in Singapore, Merc bounced back in Korea as Hamilton and Nico Rosberg picked up 16 points compared to the 10 of the Italian team.

That means only one points separate the two teams with five races still to go.

"We are only one point behind Ferrari so we have to make sure in the next five races that we consistently beat them," the 2008 World Champion said.

"Second in the Constructors' Championship would be huge for us.

"So that is my goal, to do that for the team."

Hamilton's own title ambitions are also over for another season while he has slipped below Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in the hunt for second place behind Sebastian Vettel.

He added: "As for me, I have fallen down to fourth in the Drivers' Championship, and I still feel we can get higher."
