June.21 – 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton said he is looking to secure at the European GP after his two disappointing results in Monaco and Canada.
McLaren proved speed to challenge for win in each of the last two races, as confirmation by Jenson Button’s third place in Monaco and victory in Canada.
“For me, Valencia will be a weekend of consolidation after two disappointing results in Monaco and Canada,” Hamilton said. “Those two races were particularly frustrating for me because we showed we had the pace to win both of them, yet I only came away with eight points. I’ve always gone well at Valencia, finishing second there in every race, and I really enjoy attacking the track. It’s a difficult circuit with no let-up, but that won’t deter me as I’m really keen to get back on track and get back in the points. This race will be our third street circuit in a row, so hopefully it’ll give me the chance to reverse the bad luck I’ve encountered in the previous two!”
The McLaren speedy, Hamilton also said that despite his disturbance, he was taking heart from the fact that McLaren had been the pace setters on race day at the last three grands prix.
“We’ve arguably had the fastest race car in the last three races, and that’s really encouraging because I know that, when it’s put to best use, I should be able to finish at the front.”
