bbc.comLewis Hamilton says he does not care whether he wins the Formula 1 title at Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix.The Mercedes driver, who qualified third with Ferrari title rival Sebastian Vettel on pole, needs only to finish fifth to win the championship even if the German wins the race."It doesn't feel great that people keep talking about it because I have three races to do the job," said Hamilton.
"I really have no cares if we win it here or at the next race."

Hamilton wants to win title 'the right way'
The Briton added: "What I care about is going out there and trying to win."Hamilton, 32, said upon arriving in Mexico that he wants to clinch his fourth world title by winning the race at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City.But his job has been made harder by his lack of pace in qualifying - exactly as the team had predicted before the weekend.Hamilton was nearly half a second off Vettel, who beat Red Bull's Max Verstappen by just 0.086 seconds, and said he could not have beaten the pair even if he had done his best lap on his final run.

The Red Bull and Ferrari were way out of our league today but even if I had finished the lap, which was a really good lap, I would have been 0.2secs."We just didn't have it today. Can't win them all. but the race is a long day so I'm hoping I can make up some ground. "I am confident of our race pace but this is not a good track in terms of being able to follow. You need 1.3secs [advantage per lap] to overtake, so as soon as you get up behind someone you're done. As soon as the start is done, it is going to be about bringing it home."
