And while Hamilton suffers, everything is going smoothly with his teammate and stat leader Nico Rosberg. The tables have been turned and now Hamilton is the one at the back of Rosberg and he wants to change that this weekend and will hold nothing back to win as reported by Telegraph.
Luckily, the Circuit de Austin is a talisman circuit for Hamilton as he has won three our of four occasions he has competed there. It was also the circuit where he was proclaimed world champion for the third time. So for Hamilton to return to the United States is almost like being at home and hopes that all this will serve to turn around the situation.
"I love the country, culture, people and the track, so I'm looking forward to it. It's almost like American fans have adopted me as their own, so I'll try to translate all that positive energy this weekend," Hamilton said.
Friends Before Rivalry

Mercedes won the F1 race this season as Rosberg places first and Hamilton places 3rd in Japan. Their "cooperation while competing" is actually good for Mercedes and the F1 as a whole.
Hamilton had the opportunity to visit the Mercedes factory last week to celebrate the constructor's championship, which conveyed a good feeling and allowed him to remember how important the team for all workers of Mercedes.
