SHANGHAI - Lewis Hamilton is on the cusp of something Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Fernando Alonso never achieved: winning the Formula One drivers' title in his first season.
Hamilton heads into this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix with 107 points, a 12-point lead over McLaren teammate and two-time defending champion Alonso.
Hamilton will become the first rookie to clinch the title if he finishes ahead of Alonso in Shanghai, or maintains at least an 11-point margin with only the Brazilian Grand Prix to go.
The chance to set history here will not alter Hamilton's approach.
"From the very beginning, my approach is the same like I did the first race," Hamilton said.
"After the first race I got my first podium out of the way. From then on everything else was just a learning experience and you just have to enjoy it. "I am trying to keep my feet on the ground and keep on enjoying it."
Hamilton had to overcome adversity to get to this point.
Not only was he a rookie toiling alongside Alonso, but his team was fined US$100 million (about R700 million) and was disqualified from the team title.
Relations with Alonso have also been rocky. - Sapa-AP
