Rubens urges Hamilton to ignore critics

Rubens urges Hamilton to ignore critics

Rubens Barrichello has a word of advice for Lewis Hamilton: stop reading and stop learning what others think.

Formula One veteran Barrichello's support comes after McLaren driver Hamilton came in for criticism from several drivers over his aggressive on-track style.

"It is important the day that you understand you can only depend upon yourself. What others say doesn't matter. You need to be 100 per cent right on your thoughts and you can put it out of your head," Williams driver Barrichello said.

"Opinions are there and criticism is there and you just have to deal with it and stop reading and stop learning what others think.

"The most important thing is to have a good heart, to be a good human being and perform the way that your family raised you. The rest - you are going to have bad times and good times."

The Brazilian added: "Lewis is in the limelight a bit, so people say so many things, and when so many things are said you start to believe that they are right.

"But I am on the outside - he is the one who has to believe."
