Aug.2 (GMM) When the chequered flag waves on the Hungaroring pit straight on Sunday, many elements of the formula one circus will breathe a sigh of relief.
It marks the end of a relentless stretch of eleven grands prix and tests in between.For most of August, the three-week break until Valencia and the test moratorium means much of the tired F1 world can pull away and recharge for the final seven-race sprint that will crown the 2008 champion.But McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton, who leads the drivers' standings, would rather do without a summer vacation and just keep racing."I don't need a break," he is quoted as saying in Hungary by The Sun."In fact, now is a better time than ever to keep pushing."Hamilton, 23, has won more races than any other driver this year, and the last two on the trot.On Sunday, he could become the first driver since Michael Schumacher in 2006 to secure a rare hat-trick of wins."It's of no importance to me," the Briton insists. "I just want to continue with the momentum I've got."
