Oct.11 (GMM) Championship leader and Fuji pole sitter Lewis Hamilton has brushed off claims his formula one rivals are unhappy with his on-track tactics.
BMW's Robert Kubica said "most" other drivers believe some of the Briton's moves, for example against Timo Glock and Fernando Alonso at Monza, were "too much and dangerous".Hamilton, 23, retorted on the eve of the Japanese grand prix: "I don't care what the other guys think."I represent my team, myself, my family, my country and I do it the best way I can. At the end of the day there are always going to be people you are beating who aren't particularly happy about things, but that's motor racing," he added.Hamilton and Kubica rose through the karting ranks together, but the Pole said recently that they have lost contact since entering F1 because they have a "different mindset".It is clear Hamilton, who drives for McLaren, fundamentally disagrees with Kubica's complaint about over-aggressive driving."You should race," he insisted. "I don't really understand what he is saying. It doesn't appeal to me."
