Lewis Hamilton is refusing to let his Valencia retirement get to him, insisting it's all in the past.
The McLaren driver failed to see the chequered flag at the European GP when he was thumped into the wall on the penultimate lap by Williams' Pastor Maldonado. The two had been tussling over third place.
And although the DNF meant Hamilton dropped to third in the Drivers' Championship, the Brit says there is still a long way to go before the title is decided.
"I just move forward. It's in the past, it doesn't really matter now," he told Reuters Television.
"I'm still in the battle for the title, there's still a long, long way to go and I've been massively consistent all the way up until here and in terms of my preparation and my approach I will continue to keep the same.
"It's not as if I drove into the wall on my own. I didn't make the mistake on my own so I think I will just continue to do what I'm doing and try and stay out of trouble more."
Looking ahead to the British Grand Prix, Hamilton reckons Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel will be his main rival for the victory.
Vettel was flying in last Sunday's European Grand Prix and easily ahead of the field by 20 seconds before the Safety Car came out. Moments after the race restarted, though, the Red Bull driver's RB8 broke down due to an overheated alternator.
Despite not claiming the victory, Vettel was undoubtedly the driver to beat in Valencia and Hamilton reckons he will be running up front again at Silverstone.
This time, though, the McLaren driver is out to ensure the German stays behind him.
"I don't think we can be too surprised just because we've seen the rate of their development over the last couple of years," Hamilton told Sky Sports News.
"Of course to see him pull away so far - he was pulling over a second a lap - that was astonishing for me, but then again I wasn't really that fast so it wasn't like I was in the previous race.
"So hopefully in the next race we'll have a much better chance of keeping with him, if not being ahead of him.
"We've got hopefully some upgrades coming, the car felt pretty good in the simulator so I hope that we have a fighting chance to make the nation proud."
The Brit, though, downplayed the impact of racing at home, insisting he will be racing as hard for the victory next Sunday as he would at any other track.
"It doesn't really alter the way I go racing because I race to win, and that's what I'll be doing, especially at my home grand prix," he said in his team's preview.
"The Santander British Grand Prix is special because I get a massive boost from all the fans. To me, winning at Silverstone is right up there with winning at Monaco. Standing on the top step of the podium in 2008 was among the sweetest moments of my career.
"I know we can count on the fans to bring a totally unique atmosphere. We're going to give it everything we've got, put on a great show. I will be doing everything possible to get a win for my country on home soil."
