Lewis Hamilton insists he is not dwelling on the disappointment of Malaysia despite the engine problem that left him facing an uphill battle to win a fourth world championship title. Hamilton was comfortably leading the Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur when yet another reliability issue forced him to retire and left him trailing Nico Rosberg by 23 points in the title race.With just five races to go Hamilton looks unlikely to overhaul his Mercedes team-mate but insists he remains positive heading into Japan this weekend. Nico would deserve title Rosberg would be a deserved world champion if he holds off Hamilton, claims Damon Hill Of course, last weekend was a massive disappointment, he said. Not just for me personally but for the whole team. But theres no use dwelling on these things.Thats just negative energy. All we can do is focus on the next race, taking things one step at a time and doing the best job we can. The guys are hurting from what happened too and I know theyll be working just as hard to get things right next time.  Regardless, I will find strength from within to fight back over these next five race weekends. If I can perform like I did last weekend and the car holds together, then good things can still come my way. Sky Sports commentator Damon Hill says Lewis Hamilton can still win the F1 Drivers Championship despite being 23 points behind Nico Rosberg Rosberg, who struggled into third in Malaysia as Daniel Ricciardo led home a Red Bull one-two, said he sympathised with Hamilton despite the boost it gave him in pursuit of a first drivers championship title.Sunday was not great for us, unfortunately, said the German. My race was almost over before it even began and I feel for Lewis, as Ive been there myself and it sucks big time to have all those points taken away from you just like that. Of course, the result in Malaysia went in my favour in the title battle. Thats a fact and I cannot pretend otherwise. But I havent been thinking about the points situation all season and Im not going to start now. Im here to win races and thats the aim every time. Niki Lauda feels Lewis Hamilton has been let down by his Mercedes team after engine failure at the Malaysia Grand Prix severely damaged his title chances. Mercedes chief Toto Wolff said the whole team is feeling Hamiltons pain after the problems in Sepang but insisted the title race is not over yet.Weve talked amongst ourselves and said how is this possible? But there is no rational explanation or pattern in these failures. If there were, we would resolve it, said Wolff.  Does Lewis need to win all five? Hamilton has a mountain to climb after falling 23 points behind Rosberg, can he turn it around? Weve had that discussion with him and he understands that we are feeling his pain too. Despite his frustration, he has been trying to pick the team up and we admire him even more than ever for that. Its tough when these things come at a crucial point in a championship battle. Its a massive blow to his campaign. But the championship isnt over yet, there are still five races to go. Also See: Does Lewis need to win all five?

PRETORIA, South Africa -- A South African police officer swung a cricket bat at Oscar Pistorius bullet-marked bathroom door during his murder trial on Wednesday, using two key pieces of evidence to re-enact the night he killed his girlfriend. Police Col. J.G. Vermeulen faced tough questioning from Pistorius defence lawyer, who tried to discredit the police investigation of the shooting and alleged that Vermeulen, a forensic expert, made glaring missteps in his analysis. Pistorius lawyers secured bail for him last year after contending that police contaminated or tampered with evidence from the home where he fatally shot Reeva Steenkamp, firing through the bathroom door as she cowered inside during the pre-dawn hours of Valentines Day 2013. Pistorius says the killing was a mistake; the prosecution alleges the 27-year-old double-amputee intentionally shot Steenkamp after an argument. The actual door that Pistorius shot through a year ago was erected in the Pretoria courtroom Wednesday, and the bat he used that night was used in the demonstrations. There was even a toilet cubicle behind the door, recreated to the exact specifications of the small area of Pistorius bathroom where the 29-year-old model was fatally shot, Vermeulen said. Below the doors handle, four bullet holes were clearly visible. Steenkamp was hit three times in the hip, arm and head. One shot missed, the court has heard. Pistorius says he used the bat to break down the door after realizing he shot Steenkamp, mistaking her for an intruder. Kneeling, Vermeulen swung the bat to show how he believed Pistorius struck the door from a low angle, indicating he was on his stumps at the time. Defence lawyer Barry Roux insisted Pistorius was wearing his prosthetic legs, saying the bat marks on the door were low because he swung with a bent back. The back-and-forth over whether Pistorius, the first amputee to run at the Olympics, was on his prosthetic limbs or not is important because it could match parts of his story that he accidentally shot Steenkamp, or expose inconsistencies in it. Last year, prosecutors maintained Pistorius was on his prosthesees when he fired through the door, arguing the runner planned the killing while putting on his artificial limbs.dddddddddddd But in a reversal, prosecutor Gerrie Nel said in court Wednesday that he did not dispute the defences contention that the runner was on his stumps when he opened fire. The athlete has said he fearfully approached the bathroom on his stumps and shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder hiding behind the door. According to his account, he then put on his prostheses and tried to kick down the locked door, striking it with a cricket bat in a panicked attempt to reach his girlfriend. Roux turned up the pressure on Vermeulen, saying the police investigator failed to properly look at another mark on the door the defence says was made by Pistorius prosthetic leg as he tried to kick it down, leaving a piece of sock fabric lodged in the wood. The defence lawyer also indicated that police investigators might have left a shoe print on the door, the door itself might have been kept in a policemans office and not in proper evidence storage, and missing fragments from the door werent examined. Vermeulen said the door was kept in a "body bag." In an evidence photo, a faint footmark on one of the door panels could be seen. "It looks like a police shoe print," Vermeulen said. "How did that come about?" Roux asked. Vermeulen said he did not know. Earlier, Vermeulen also said a metal panel on the wall of the main bathroom in Pistorius home had been damaged by being hit with a "hard" object. The panel was new evidence. A photo of the damaged plate was shown. Pistorius faces a possible life sentence if convicted of murder for killing Steenkamp. The judge, who watched the demonstrations Wednesday, will ultimately decide on the verdict. There is no trial by jury in South Africa. Pistorius was born without fibula bones because of a congenital defect, and his legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. He ran on carbon-fiber blades and is a multiple Paralympic medallist . He also competed at the London Olympics but didnt win a medal.
