|Hamilton overtakes Schumacher in 2011 Monaco GP|
McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton is still waiting for his first top podium in this season. He insists Monaco is the very special and better place for the first victory.
2008 world champion added that consistency performance and scoring decent points is most sensible way to tackle world championship.
Jenson Button is doubtful about the McLaren winning chance in upcoming weekend race at Monaco Grand Prix. 2009 Monaco GP winner Button says McLaren not well suited in tighter confines of a track like Monaco.
“Monaco is a very special circuit. It’s up there with Silverstone as the place where I most want to do well at.
“Even though Monaco has the slowest average speed of all the circuits we visit in a season, it always feels incredibly quick. That’s because the acceleration is so rapid and the walls so close: there really is no room for error. “
“Apart from the run-off at Ste Devote, and the tiny escape roads at Mirabeau and the harbor chicane, there’s no room to make a mistake. But when the stakes are at their highest, I just find it more exciting.
“Still, it’s important not to lose sight of the fact that, despite pushing for the win, consistency and scoring decent points is currently the most sensible way to tackle this world championship. I’ve scored points at every race, and I’m only eight points off the lead of the championship. That’s a really encouraging statistic and it’s reassuring to see my approach is paying off.
“Nevertheless, I’m coming off the back of two relatively disappointing results and there would be no better place for the cards to fall in my favour than at Monaco.”
