Mar.21 (GMM) Lewis Hamilton in Malaysia repeated his reluctance to join the F1 drivers' safety union, the GPDA.
The championship leader and McLaren driver has been under intense pressure recently - notably by Grand Prix Drivers' Association stalwarts Pedro de la Rosa, David Coulthard and Mark Webber, and observers including Sir Jackie Stewart - to formally throw his weight behind the body's efforts.The Briton, as well as Kimi Raikkonen, Anthony Davidson and Adrian Sutil, are the only active F1 racers who are not GPDA members."I am quite comfortable the way I am. I don't have any particularly heartfelt reasons not to join," Hamilton said at Sepang."It's not a big story. At the moment I just don't feel that I need to make a choice."I'm happy. I need just to race, and not to take any other responsibilities. The most important thing is that the FIA and the GPDA have my support 100 per cent if they need it," he added.
