Hamilton: I'll never stop racing the way I do

“The passion is just even greater than elsewhere,” the 26-year-old is quoted as having said by the Daily Mail, trying to explain his uncompromising performance in Monte Carlo and insisting that he will have 'at least another ten opportunities' to triumph around the glamorous Principality's tortuous streets. “In my heart of hearts, I believe I can own this circuit. I feel like I can be the fastest here. I was, and not with the fastest car.

“In all honesty, I will never stop racing the way I do. It's the way I do it. That's what got me here; it is the way I am. I don't do it to offend people or to hurt anyone. I do it because I love racing. I feel like I can do it better than others.

“I am here to race and win. If I have to lose that passion, it would blow all the racing. If it ever comes to a stage where I had to pull back, drive for fourth or fifth place and just cruise around, it would not excite me and I probably wouldn't stay around for that.

“At the end of the day, this is motorsport and we are supposed to see racing. Not many people overtake in Monaco, and I tried to do that. Unfortunately, collisions caused me to have some penalties. I will recover from this weekend, [hopefully with] a win in Canada. It is a big gap [to pace-setter Sebastian Vettel in the world championship standings], but anything can happen.”

Never really been a Hamilton fan as his off track attitude is sh*t, he always does this, he actually races in a Grand Prix as opposed to pilot a car around a circuit, and I warm to him in the race as he is a racer, I enjoy watching him push the car and people around him to the limits, like racing should be. Then he gets out of the car and is a complete ****hole who is so far up himself it is unreal and I lose all time for him, even Fernando is getting less of a moaner than Lewis.

Man, am I glad to hear that!! Hamilton is without a doubt the best driver out there! He's the fastest, most overtaking - and by far the most entertaining guy on the circuit! He is a winner to the bone - and expects to win every single time! That's what is making him so good to watch - and stand out from the rest of the drivers - and from all the Crash think-you-know-it-all couch pilots who just sit back with all your broken dreams because you didn't have the guts to make them happen! Lot easier to just bad mouth people who did! Exactly the same kind of small people who were bashing Senna and Schumacher in those days - and yes, Hamilton is made of that same precious stuff! Who gives a rat's a.. what he says - I watch the race on tv or at the circuits to see the... RACE!! I am not saying he shouldn't be punished for dangerous mistakes - but all I saw in Monaco were bold overtakings that really were just racing incidents and should have been treated as such by the stewards.
