Catch up on Lewis Hamilton's columns across the 2014 season so far...
Australian Grand Prix - "Fascinating start to F1 season"
I am going to eat, sleep and breathe nothing but racing until I have won that world championship again. I have never felt more passionate or more energised about the sport...
Malaysian Grand Prix - "Why new F1 rules make life tough for drivers"
There has been a lot of discussion and controversy about the changes that have been made to Formula 1 this year. But don't believe anyone who tells you it's no longer a challenge for the drivers. In many ways, it is tougher than before.
Bahrain Grand Prix - "I'm a lot happier in my new Mercedes"
I've had a few days to reflect on my victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix and I have to say it feels like it was one of my best races. It's very difficult to pick an absolute best, because each one is so different in terms of the demands required to do well, especially over seven years with different sets of rules.
Chinese Grand Prix - "Special racing Nico Rosberg in Bahrain"
Winning in Bahrain earlier this month, after such a close fight with my Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, was fantastic, but the confidence has been there all season. Bahrain was special because you don't get to show what you really can do very often.
Spanish Grand Prix - "Nigel Mansell's comments flattering and incredible"
To read Nigel Mansell's comments about me on the BBC Sport website this week was very flattering. I admire Nigel greatly for all his success. He led British hopes in F1 for many years and he still holds the record for number of wins by a Brit.
Monaco Grand Prix - "Being F1's first black driver is important"
When I first started in Formula 1, I tried to ignore the fact I was the first black guy ever to race in the sport. But, as I've got older, I've really started to appreciate the implications. It's a pretty cool feeling to be the person to knock down a barrier - just like the Williams sisters did in tennis or Tiger Woods in golf.
Canadian Grand Prix - "Nico Rosberg rivalry has been overblown"
I love it when our sport catches the attention of the wider public and gets people talking. Not just the regular racing fans who study every detail and know all the back stories. Or the guys who collect every bit of trivia about Formula 1 from back in the day. I love those diehards for their dedication and their belief in us all as racers.
Austrian Grand Prix - "Another failure and Nico's lead might be too big"
Retiring from the Canadian Grand Prix has given me pause for thought about the championship. I'm still totally confident I can overhaul the 22-point advantage my team-mate Nico Rosberg has over me now, but it has become even more apparent that I need to be finishing every race.
British Grand Prix - "British Grand Prix made extra-special by home fans"
Silverstone is a great circuit. Of course it is my home race, but what really makes it super-special are the fans. We have the most incredible, passionate fans in this country, whether it is football, tennis, Formula 1 or whatever.
German Grand Prix - "British Grand Prix win created momentum"
I've had some time now to reflect on winning the British Grand Prix. It was an important result for me because the combination of my victory and my Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg failing to finish meant that I made up a lot of the ground I lost through my two retirements earlier this season.
Hungarian Grand Prix - "I've made mistakes and had some bad luck"
This weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix is the first anniversary of my first win for Mercedes and it really feels like the last 18 months with the team have been the most enjoyable of my life.
Belgian Grand Prix - "Nico Rosberg and I will be racing flat out"
To be where I am, considering what I have been through, is fantastic and to know I can come back and be right there in the fight is massively motivating for me.
Italian Grand Prix - "I have a thick skin to recover a bit faster"
You know how in the film Monsters Inc, they get their energy from scaring children, and then at the end realise that there is so much more from people being happy and laughing? That's how I feel.
Singapore Grand Prix - "An intense situation at the hardest GP"
We get up at lunchtime and go to bed at dawn. There will be times when it's 4am and I'm just sat in my hotel room waiting to go to bed.
