Hamilton not thinking of future
McLaren ace Lewis Hamilton insists that talks over his future are 'unimportant' compared to the current championship season.
The 27-year-old had previously suggested that he would make a decision 'sooner rather than later' but he and his team have yet to even open talks with McLaren over a new deal.
Hamilton's current contract is due to expire in seven months but the unpredictability of this season - in which there have been six different winners in the first six races for the first time ever - may have had an impact on his thoughts.
Hamilton is not too fussed that his future is up in the air at the moment and insists his sole focus is on the current season.
"I haven't even discussed anything," Hamilton said. "I underestimated how difficult the season would be, how busy I would be, and I have also realised how unimportant it is at the moment.
"The championship is more important than what I plan to do, what my next contract will be. My future at the moment is not important - I might not even see next year!
"What's important is making sure I capitalise and maximise on this year."
