Lewis Hamilton well formed after his first 2012 F1 victory at Montreal and presently the McLaren guy leading drivers’ championship.
McLaren set right two stop strategy for Lewis Hamilton in Montreal and he was grabbed victory from Vettel and Alonso. The British speedy Valencia feeling super-motivated to get another strong result and maintain my momentum before we head into Silverstone and the Santander British Grand Prix.
“My win in Montreal was obviously an extremely satisfying moment for me – but, actually, it does very little to alter things in the world championship,” said Hamilton. “Firstly, while it’s always pleasing to be leading the championship, I’m only two points ahead of Fernando [Alonso] – which is nothing, particularly when there are a handful of really strong drivers all separated by a couple of points, so there’s still everything to play for.
“Secondly, the intensity of this year’s championship means there’s so little breathing space – we may have won in Canada, but there’s an enormous amount of pressure to keep racking up good results at every grand prix. I think that consistency, rather than individual strong results, will be the key to winning this world championship, so we need to back it up in Valencia with another strong result.
“People are always asking me to predict what will happen at the next race and I always tell them it’s really difficult to make an accurate prediction – but I’ll be heading to Valencia feeling super-motivated to get another strong result and maintain my momentum before we head into Silverstone and the Santander British Grand Prix.”
