London, Mar. 22 (ANI): British Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he is not just aiming one more world title, but two. The next target on the remarkable 24-year-old’’s agenda is to match the career haul of his idol Ayrton Senna and win the world drivers” championship three times. “People say, ”Do you want to do what Michael Schumacher’’s done?”, but I”ve always said since I was a kid that I would love to be an F1 driver, then be a world champion and then to do what Ayrton did, which is to win three world championships,” the Sunday Mirror Sport quoted him, as saying. As the world champion Hamilton opens his defense in Australia, he also spills some beans about his secret aspirations. I look at Alain Prost and Sir Jackie Stewart. They are multiple world champions and one day I would like to have my name in that group. It would be very cool, he said. However, the title of his dream has been accompanied by wounding claims that he is arrogant. I never want to hear that kind of thing. Everyone makes mistakes and for sure there is maybe a point where I have come across as being arrogant so I will have to correct that, he defended. But he admitted the biggest fight on his agenda will surely come halfway around the world in seven days” time. Although hamilton has already prepared himself for the inevitability that he must one day lose the title, that agony will not match the torture of his near-miss by a single point as a rookie in 2007.
