Lewis Hamilton has warned that the drivers' title is far from in the bag and that 'anything is still possible'.

Lewis goes to China this coming weekend off the back of another win in Japan and thanks to that result - and Fernando Alonso's accident, he now has a 12-point cushion with just two races to go and 20 points up for grabs. Providing he finishes ahead of Fernando then in at least fifth this Sunday he will wrap up the title in his debut season at the pinnacle of the sport.

Speaking prior to the event though, he said that he will be taking it race by race and trying not to think about the bigger picture.

"We are going into these races with a really tight Drivers' battle with only 12 points between me and Fernando. Anything is still possible but I am feeling confident and very determined and I hope we will have another couple of exciting races," he noted.

"There has been a lot of talk over the last couple of days about the Championship, but I just push that to the back of my mind. I am only focused on the next two races and doing the best I can in China and Brazil with the team."

Despite China and Brazil both being unknowns for Lewis he isn't especially bothered by that fact. Indeed he reckons it won't make much difference: "The last two races of this season are at tracks that I have not ever been to before. I don't see that as a problem however.

"This has been the case on four occasions already this season, at Melbourne, Montreal, Indy and Fuji and I was on the podium at all these races," he reasoned.

"From what I understand of the Shanghai circuit, it is very vast in comparison with Interlagos, so we will probably have two quite different races.

"Everything is too tight for me to predict what will happen, but the races in China always seem to be exciting and I feel well prepared to take on the challenge," he concluded.
