Lewis Hamilton believes McLaren teammate Jenson Button has done a better job than him during this year's World Championship.
Hamilton has endured a season of ups and downs, having won two races but also having been involved in several accidents that have ruled him out of the championship fight. Button, in his second season with McLaren, has also won two races but is 17 points ahead and remains the only driver other than Sebastian Vettel with a mathematical chance of winning the title.
Hamilton praised Button's job this season as "incredible" and conceded he has done a better job this year.
"I think for me now it's just to find my ground and improve on the results that we've had in the last four races," Hamilton told Reuters while on a promotional tour in Bangalore on Tuesday. "Jenson's done an incredible job...I feel he's done a better job all season, really.
"So, even if I did a better job in the next five races it doesn't mean a lot to me. I mean, it's through a whole year," added the Briton.
The McLaren driver also said he has already moved on from his on- and off-track clashes with Ferrari's Felipe Massa at the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend.
"I was able to just ignore it and move on," he said.
