Canadian F1 Grand Prix: Hamilton feeling 'even more determined'

Mercedes man Lewis Hamilton out to bounce back in the 2014 F1 Canadian Grand Prix, 'one of his favourite weekends of the year'
Lewis Hamilton has reiterated that he will go to Canada next week 'with even more energy and determination' following a difficult weekend in Monaco.

Hamilton had to settle for second around the streets of the Principality losing out after team-mate Nico Rosberg took that controversial pole position the previous day, something that ultimately paved the way for the German to win.

Hamilton, however, is now looking ahead having made up with Rosberg and will be determined to do well at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a track that he regards very fondly and was the scene of his maiden F1 win back in 2007. He also won there in 2010 and 2012 too, while last year he was third.

“Monaco was another great weekend for the team and I'm so proud of all the hard work the guys put in to make it happen. Of course, from a personal perspective it wasn't what I was aiming for. I race to win every time and unfortunately it just wasn't my weekend,” the Briton lamented.

“But I drove with all my heart and gave it all I could, so I head to the next race with even more energy and determination,” added the 2008 F1 World Champion.

“Montreal is one of my favourite weekends of the year. It's where I won my first Grand Prix back in 2007 and I've had another two victories there since, so it holds some special memories for me,” he continued.

“The city itself is incredible [too]. It's one I always love to go to and there's always a great crowd, so I'm hoping for them that the weather is good and we can put on a great show!” he summed-up in the countdown to round seven in F1 2014.

107SS2009: Dear CRASH NET/MODERATOR/S, Starting another thread on the same tame while having left all that racism/skin colour trolling trash on the previous thread does indicate a change in policy on this site, numbers might be gained but on the long run this site will be dragged down like other sites were by those that migrated from such sites after they were blocked/kicked out to this one.
pretty low blow from you. Link to a single racist comment can you? Or maybe you mean that people do really love to post BS on every single Lewis article. Like this right now where the guy is saying he will come stronger in Canada and people attack him. Clearly there's a trend towards denigrating him personally in these forums and I really wonder what's the real motive behind it. It's clear there's a group here that attacks Lewis in every single article and it has nothing to do with his driving!

Taipan: Chris, Last Thursday marked 5 months since Michael's accident, sadly the last I read there was no change in his condition. Keep fighting Michael.
It is still the first thing I scan the news headlines for everyday I log on, hoping there are some good news about him. I haven't found anything either. 50% of the headlines are about the fool! bleh Keep Fighting Michael!
