Oct.20 (GMM) McLaren boss Ron Dennis says he would not mind if Ferrari records a dominant one-two in Brazil, so long as Lewis Hamilton is crowned world champion.
In Shanghai on Sunday, Hamilton drove to an easy victory, ensuring a 7 point advantage over Ferrari's Felipe Massa with just the Interlagos finale in two weeks to go.The mathematics of the points standings means that, even if Massa wins at Sao Paulo and the other Ferrari finishes second, 23-year-old Hamilton will still be champion if he secures fifth place or higher."We have no problem with Massa coming first and Kimi coming second," Dennis, when asked about the last race, told reporters before leaving China."It doesn't really worry us. We will compete fiercely through practice and qualifying, see where we are and take a view from there," he said.In his post-race message of congratulations to Hamilton over the radio in China, Dennis praised the British driver for his "discipline".Now Dennis is asking for one more show of calm."To win the world championship, we have to finish the next race, it's as simple as that. I think for everybody it will be very exciting, but our objective will be to make it boring for everybody," he smiled."The most important thing will be to stay out of trouble."After losing last year's championship at the last hurdle despite a similar advantage, and with his mistake of the recent Japanese grand prix in mind, Hamilton indicates that he agrees with Dennis' advice."We know what we have to do," he said."We will use a similar approach to what I had this weekend, which was better than I had last year coming here; a bit calmer, a bit more confidence in the package and what we have to do," Hamilton added.
