Lewis Hamilton says he's ready to fightback after his disappointment in the Monaco Grand Prix and feels Montreal is the ideal place to do it.
The reigning Formula 1 world champion was cruelly denied victory on the streets of Monte Carlo due after an ill-judged pitstop dropped him behind Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, despite having led the race by 20 seconds.
The British driver is hoping to draw a line under the race and says his team has learnt from its error as F1 heads to Canada for round seven of the 2015 championship.
“I think everything that needs to be said about Monaco has already been said,” Hamilton said. “Obviously, it was a huge disappointment for me and also for the team. But we'll learn from it and move forwards together like we always do.
“I just want to get back out there and bounce back and I could hardly ask for a better place to do that than Montreal.”
The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve hosted Hamilton's maiden Formula 1 Grand Prix victory in 2007 while driving for McLaren and the double world champion says the event holds a lot of fond memories.
“This is always one of my favourite weekends. The racing is fantastic, the city is a lot of fun and the crowds are really enthusiastic,” he explained. “I haven't always had the best of luck in Canada - but I've never finished off the podium there either and it's given me some great memories, including my first win.”
Hamilton also reiterated his confidence in his Mercedes team and says he only has eyes on a fourth Grand Prix win of the season.
“I know I've got the car underneath me and the team behind me to do it again, so I'm aiming for nothing less.”
