Lewis Hamilton could probably put his feet up and relax at the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this weekend, after minting a sixth world title.

But the Mercedes ace, who is on the threshold of his 250th start, is eager to end it well, more so after his seventh place finish in Brazil following a collision.

The 34-year-old had collided with Red Bull Racing's Alexander Albon when duelling for second. It was an error from Hamilton, one that the Briton owed up to and apologised to the Thai-British driver.

And now that has been done, he wants to wrap up the season with an 11th win and the 84th of his career.

"Brazil definitely wasn't a great one," Hamilton said at the Yas Marina Circuit on Thursday.

"But I think it's really important to often acknowledge the good parts of the weekends rather than always just focus on the negatives," he added.

Reflecting on the weekend in Brazil, Hamilton, who has four victories in Abu Dhabi, said: "Naturally the negative of not finishing in the position that I should have, second or third, the failures and mistakes, it's good to acknowledge those also, but it's good to take away from it the positives, and there were plenty of positives to take from the weekend. I don't want another weekend like that, so I'll put things right this weekend, and we'll continue to go full steam ahead."
