MADRID - Lewis Hamilton believes cost-cutting changes will make it tough for him to win the Formula One championship again next year.
Governing body the FIA and the F1 teams agreed to a series of measures for 2009 last Friday, which include longer-lasting engines, limits on expensive testing and cheaper, off-the-shelf engines for smaller teams.
"I don't think it's going to make it easier. Definitely with the new regulations, it's going to be tough," Hamilton said in a conference call from the US on Tuesday. "We're working very, very hard on making sure we approach and enter the season with a fighting chance to win the championship again."
The 23-year-old Hamilton became the youngest and first black driver to win the F1 title in 2008.
F1's sweeping changes for 2009 come as automakers reel from the global financial crisis. Honda pulled out of F1 this month after Super Aguri quit in April. The FIA said the first changes for 2009 will help larger teams cut costs by about one-third over 2008.
"We have less testing, obviously but I think we as a team are in a position to pull together and make a difference in some other way," Hamilton said. "But everyone's in the same boat."
There will be even more radical changes introduced after next season, with races possibly shortened and refueling banned. - Sapa-AP
