F1 >>> FEATUrE In the spotlight How important was that to you today and what was the turning point this year? LEWIS HAMILTON: It's very hard to soak all this up. When you're going through the race, when you're coming here this weekend, there's so much pressure from around you, you're just trying to ignore it, trying to keep your eye on the ball. Coming in today ... Niki was right, I didn't sleep last night. I went to bed at about 1am and woke up at, like, 5am this morning and I went for a run this morning and a massage and everything and I thought for sure I'm going to be tired when it gets to the race but somehow I felt composed. My family came and surprised me at breakfast, which was really a great thing. I wanted them to be here but I just knew how intense the weekend would be and I didn't know if I was going to have time to give them any time. I didn't want to finish the day or the weekend saying 'I wish I did this or I wish I did that'. This has been an incredible year. I just cannot believe how amazing this has all been. Coming to this team last year, the decision to come here, when a lot of people said it was the wrong choice; the steps we took last year and then coming into this year, it was just unbelievable and then again, as I said, the fan support has been phenomenal. I never in a million years thought I'd have that kind of support, so as I said before, this is the greatest moment in my life. It's very hard to... it feels very surreal. It feels like an out-of- body experience. I feel like I'm back here watching this going on, it's not really happening. So I'm going to really make sure I gift my thanks and count my blessings. continued over page Sometimes, winning the race or championship is the easy part – once it's over, the world's media wants to know all about it.
