Hamilton in confident mood ahead of Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Formula 1 fans flocking to Abu Dhabi for the penultimate Grand Prix of the 2011 season will see British ace Lewis Hamilton attempt to put recent turmoil behind him.Hamilton has endured a torrid season at times, colliding on a number of occasions with Ferrari rival Felipe Massa.However, the McLaren driver is upbeat ahead of his trip to the Middle East and says he is looking to please his army of fans and finish the season on a high."We've every reason to be confident because this circuit should really suit the characteristics of our car," he commented."We should be able to capitalise on the layout to maximise the benefit of DRS and KERS, both of which are very strong on our car. Sebastian (Vettel) may have clinched both championships, but I'm still determined to end the season on a winning high."Hamilton has won just two races this year, but claims he has his sights set on doubling that figure with wins in Abu Dhabi and Brazil.
