Lewis Hamilton has admitted to suffering no second thoughts regarding his move to Mercedes in the wake of their recent dismal form.
Since Hamilton announced he was quitting McLaren after 14 years with the Woking-based marque and signing a three-year deal with Mercedes, the German manufacturing giant has failed to score a single point in the last three races.
Asked by Press Association Sport about Mercedes' run, Hamilton said: "I've been told about it. It makes me even more driven to help them score points, and no, I'm not thinking 'have I made right decision?' I'm very happy with the decision I made. What is happening to them doesn't have any impact on that."
It is Mercedes' worst run since they returned to Formula One at the start of 2010, in stark contrast to the fact that in their previous 52 grands prix they had not scored on just four occasions.
It would further appear to highlight the folly of Hamilton's switch, which he has long stated was because he wanted a new challenge. On the evidence of Mercedes' woeful run it may be he has bitten off more than he can chew if he is hoping to revive their fortunes.
But he added: "People do sometimes lose their way. Even we (McLaren) have struggled in the past and not scored points.
"To be honest, I've not really focused on them to see what problems they've had with the car. I've not really noticed it. I've just been focusing on trying to get the constructors' title for this team, trying to get the maximum for us.
"It is theoretically still possible for us to win it, so I'm going to be all guns blazing for that."
Appreciating the size of the task awaiting him at Mercedes when he officially joins on January 1, Hamilton added: "I already knew how big it was going to be. I really thought about it long and hard, and I could see how big it was. Perhaps it's now growing.
"But as a task I'm really excited about it, excited to meet new people and to being in a different environment, and to mould myself into that environment."
