Lewis Hamiltonjust earned his thirdFormula One World Championship, but as has frequently been the case of late, all is not necessarily well betweenthe Briton and his German teammateNico Rosberg.During a Thursdayinterview with BBC Radio, the 30-year-old British drivermade some controversial --though not surprising, given his whimsical personality-- remarks about his most recent races.

Driving with theholidays inmind

Lewis Hamilton is a party boy. He just can't help it.

But his victories don't fall from the sky or arise from pure luck. Not at all. During the competition, Hamilton is just asdedicated and focused as his meticulous German colleague. However, hisfriendship with Nico Rosberg has long lagged behind, and the problem between them is their shared will to win, which pits them against each other duringevery race.

"We're never going to be best friends, but we somehow make it work," Hamilton said to BBC Radio, about Rosberg, though he also asserted that their"relationship isn't really causing any problems."

Despite hiscompetitive spirit, Hamilton does not deny that he'sbeen looking toward the holidays for weeks, adding that he didn't put so much in the last three races, which were all won by Rosberg, hisprimary rival during recent years.

"You still have to commit and work super-hard, but, for sure you're kind of like 'My job's done, I wish the season was over, wish I could go on holiday,'" he told the BBC.The controversial statements seem to devalue Rosberg's victories in said-races, and may suggest that had Hamilton been operating at full-throttle, he could have defeated his teammate.
