Lewis Hamilton on Thursday admitted he harbours only minor hopes of winning the 2011 title.
"The chance to win the championship is very small, but it's not impossible," he told the German news agency SID at a sponsor event ahead of the German Grand Prix.
"As long as there is even a small chance you have to put on as much pressure as you can. If we win the next five races, we're back in it," insisted the Briton in Hamburg.
"There is also the constructors'," said the 26-year-old. "It's not just about the drivers but also the team."
