BBC Sport - Lewis Hamilton to avoid 'silly' mistakes in Abu Dhabi

Hamilton hopes to avoid 'silly' mistakes

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton says his game plan at Abu Dhabi this weekend is to "avoid silly penalties" similar to the one he incurred during first practice at the Indian Grand Prix last month.

Hamilton, who was handed a three-place grid penalty for ignoring caution flags, admits he needs to be higher up the grid on Sunday.

The 26-year-old says he is "excited" by Abu Dhabi and sees no reason why McLaren cannot be competitive at the Grand Prix this weekend.
