Hamilton: I gave everything, I have nothing left

Lewis Hamilton admitted he 'gave it everything' after he burst from the pitlane to finish in fourth position in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix.

After spinning out in qualifying on Saturday, Hamilton was stuck at the back of the field but he was able to cut through the field with precision, picking up ten spots in the opening eight laps.

It looked at one point as if the world champion could challenge for the podium positions, but ultimate Hamilton had to settle for second - though he thoroughly enjoyed his experience.

He told reporters post-race: "It was fun. It was reminiscent of my karting days, particularly the first year or two. I messed up yesterday. I was quick enough to win the race from pole to flag and I didn't do that.

I made the job a lot harder today. My goal today was to redeem myself and make the team proud. I was trying to get back to third but I ran out of tyres in the end. This continues to show me and everyone that I still have a lot of fire in my heart, I have many more races to go.

"There's no room for mistakes when you want to be the best, but it happens, it's part of the growing process. I've had a very clean year, today has been a positive and to get back to fourth I have to be very very grateful.

"I had nothing left, I gave it everything in my heart."
