Hamilton says ‘nothing changed’ in title bid

SUZUKA, Japan - Formula One star Lewis Hamilton insisted “nothing has changed” despite his upcoming switch to Mercedes and vowed to fight for the title with McLaren, starting with this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.

The 27-year-old Briton, who has agreed to a three-year contract with Mercedes starting in 2013, pledged to attack this year’s last six races as he bids to overhaul Fernando Alonso’s 52-point championship lead.

The 2008 world champion was the center of attention at the last race in Singapore as speculation swirled over his team switch, and he will again be in the spotlight after confirming the dramatic move.

Hamilton has raced with the distinguished British team for his entire Formula One career but was lured to Mercedes by racing guru Ross Brawn and the prospect of greater freedom to pursue personal sponsors.
