Hamilton vows to continue fighting

Lewis Hamilton has vowed to continue fighting for the Drivers' Championship title with Nico Rosberg, despite the German's 29-point lead after the Belgian Grand Prix last month.

Hamilton maintains that the season is "far from over" even though Rosberg's lead in the title race is now bigger than at any point in the season before, with just seven races remaining.

Nevertheless, the Brit remains confident of closing the gap at this week's Italian Grand Prix, a race he describes as a "special" Grand Prix.

"The Italian Grand Prix is always a special one for me in terms of the memories I have there - going right back to my early career," Hamilton told crash.net.

"The karting championships used to race in Italy quite often and it's also where I met Nico - so that's where our rivalry really began.

"Monza is such a historic circuit and to win there is a really special feeling. I had that experience in 2012 and I'd love to do it again in 2014.

"Last season we really struggled at this race - but we have a fantastic car this year and I'm confident we can make up for it this time around. One thing I always love about racing at Monza is the fans. They're just so passionate about motorsport and the buzz around the place is unbelievable - particularly on the podium. Hopefully we can reward them with some exciting racing.

"My aim for the weekend, of course, is to claw back the gap in the Drivers' Championship. It's as big as it's been all season so I've got a lot of work ahead of me - but anything can happen in this sport.

"I won't give up until the flag drops in Abu Dhabi and there are still plenty of points to be won before then, so it's far from over yet."
