London, Aug 3(ANI): British Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton has admitted that his championship title hopes are “hanging by a thread” following McLaren’s shocking Hungarian Grand Prix result.

The race was McLaren’s worst of the year, with Hamilton retiring with a gearbox failure, and Button finishing eighth.

The 25-year-old, now four points behind Red Bull’s Mark Webber in the drivers standing, said the remaining seven races “are going to be hard”.

“We’re hanging on by a thin thread at the moment. If Red Bull continue with the pace they have, then we really don’t have huge hope,” The Sun quoted Hamilton, as saying.”At this stage of the season, to be so far off and to have a non-finish like I did, whilst we are still in the hunt for the championship, it’s obviously serious.”"It’s a case of having to pull together everything we have, in terms of resources of the team, the knowledge we all have, and to be the most united we have ever been,” he added.

The next race is the Belgium Grand Prix on August 29. (ANI)
