Lewis Hamilton pleased with historic Monza victory for 2012 Italian Grand Prix; it was his 20th F1 career victory and 23rd pole starts.

2008 world champion says that it was pleasant to have a comfortable grand prix with no troubles his MP4-27. Hamilton also admits that he was cruising at the end of the, when heard that Perez overtook Ferrari duo.

“Winning at Monza is one of the greatest experiences of my Formula 1 career. I absolutely love this place: I’ve been coming to Italy to race since I was 13 years old and I just love the culture, the food and the people. Hamilton said after the race.

“Since I started in Formula 1, Monza has been one of the races I always wanted to win at – it’s such an incredible, historic circuit and all the great racing drivers have won here. To finally put my name on that list makes me feel extremely proud, but also very humble.

“Our car has been fantastic all weekend, and it was nice to have a relaxed grand prix with no troubles. I was out on my own for most of the race and just tried to manage the gap behind me. I was cruising at the end, but, once I heard that Sergio [Perez] had got past Fernando [Alonso], I had to push a little to keep the cushion over second place.

Hamilton remains his team-mate Jenson Button’s retirement cost McLaren’s one-two finish opportunity. He also hints it was just one step, tomorrow; we’ll start all over again, for Singapore GP.

Hamilton added “The race was very unfortunate for Jenson – we were running first and second at the time and it would have been great for the team if we could have finished like that.

“This championship is proving to be so unpredictable – and I’m so grateful that we’ve got a good car and that we’re in the fight. We’ve got seven more races on the calendar. We should enjoy today, but this victory is just one step. Tomorrow, we’ll start all over again, for Singapore.”
