Jun.12 (GMM) Lewis Hamilton says he has no regrets about relocating to Switzerland, despite the controversy that surrounded the move.
The McLaren driver announced last year that he was moving to the alpine country because his supporters in Britain were making it impossible for him to lead a normal life.He subsequently had to admit, however, that choosing a tax-haven as his new home was also a factor.But to reporters at McLaren's Woking factory on Wednesday, 23-year-old Hamilton said life in Switzerland is "great"."I never have to think to myself that I'm being followed by someone or somebody's going to come up to me and ask me for an autograph or something," the Briton said."I'm generally left alone. I'm able to live a normal life."Meanwhile, despite McLaren executive Martin Whitmarsh's admission that the ten-place penalty will make victory unlikely, Hamilton insists he is still aiming to win in France."I feel confident we can win there -- that's my job. I have that belief in myself and the team," he said.
