F1 » Hamilton upbeat despite missing out in India

Lewis Hamilton was surprisingly upbeat at the end of the 2012 F1 Indian Grand Prix, even though he missed out on a podium position and is also effectively out of the running for the 2012 title.

A super run by Lewis. Webber with no KERS did the defensive
job of the race, finding a little more speed when needed.. Both driver having a really cracking (UK)good time.
Vettel is the man. Top Dog that he is..
Ferrari is still short on pace, Alonzo is in the hunt, "it int
over till its over", he still has a shot.

Lewiss title hunt was over in Singapore for me, and all what counts in the remaining races is that he wipes the floor with his teammate,but today proved to all that he is the better driver of the two at Mclaren, even though the JB fanboys dont want to admit it, but believe me they know it.Superb how he changed his S/Wheel in a regular stop at 3.3sec.btw. shame on Schumi, what was he thinking.!

By fighting among each other and creating a big wall of draft for Alonso at the start, McLaren worsen their race a bit but overall not a bad one compared to last few races.
At least both the drivers scored points since now they are looking at 2nd place in constructors but then Ferrari are pretty consistent too with Massa in great form. It seems they are going to go empty handed.

Still, I hope Lewis can take AbuDhabi win just to send Seb on even footing with Alonso...THEN! we can have a cracker of a race in Sao Paulo

On Satellite TV after the race, Lewis said they had a 'downshift failure' in his car and that's why they changed the stering wheel.

Does this mean he can't change down a gear and would this affect lap times at all?

I ask, as he was faster once he change the steering wheel and kept Jenson well behind.
