Lewis HamiltonFollowing the FIA’s International Court of Appeal verdict which established that McLaren-Mercedes’ appeal against the stewards’ decision to penalise Lewis Hamilton at the end of the 2008 Belgian Grand Prix is ‘inadmissible’, Lewis Hamilton said he was ‘disappointed, but not depressed‘ and he’s ready to move on.

“People will probably expect me to be depressed about today’s result, but that isn’t me,” said the Briton. “I’m disappointed, yes, but not depressed.”

“All I want to do now – continued Hamilton -  is put this matter behind me and get on with what we drivers do best: racing each other.”

“We’re racers, we’re naturally competitive, and we love to overtake. Overtaking is difficult, and it feels great when you manage to pull off a great passing manoeuvre. If it pleases the spectators and TV viewers, it’s better still,” he added.
