Lewis Hamilton has revealed he has no plans to alter his tactics for the French Grand Prix next weekend, despite his back-to-back victories in Montreal and Indianapolis.

Hamilton is currently the 'man of the moment' and thanks to an unbelievable start to the season, his first at the pinnacle of the sport, he leads the drivers' championship, 10 points up on his McLaren-Mercedes team-mate, Fernando Alonso.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed though, he added that all he wants to do now is get back out on track and do some more racing.

"After the results in Canada and the United States it was great to come home and see my family and friends," he noted. "I will also have the opportunity to go to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend; I expect the atmosphere will be incredible and it should be great to drive the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car up the hill in front of the British fans.

"For the past week I have been spending time at the McLaren Technology Centre working with the engineering team and catching up on some training and I participated in an event for Vodafone in London on Thursday.

"Now though I just want to get back out on track [and do the French GP]. My aims remain the same, to take it race-by-race and keep focused on scoring good points for myself - and the team."

Unlike the last two events however, Magny-Cours will be familiar territory for the Brit and while his outing last year didn't exactly go to plan in GP2, it should help him a bit.

"The French round of the GP2 championship last year was not my best weekend, I had a coming together in the first race and therefore started race two in 19th. I did make my way up through the field to 5th to score some points, so it is possible to overtake here," he added.
