Britain's Lewis Hamilton has said that he is really looking forward to the challenge during the remaining six races of the season, as he looks to defend his seven point lead in the drivers' standings.

Hamilton has been sensational this year, during his debut at the top level and despite all the controversy in Hungary, he is eager to get back out in Turkey next weekend and try and go for his fourth victory.

"During the short summer break I have been keeping up with my training to ensure I am fully prepared for it. Along with the team, I am very motivated right now.

"There are six races remaining and I am looking forward to the challenge," he confirmed.

Hamilton has fond memories of racing in Turkey and last season he put in a stunning drive at Istanbul Park en-route to winning the GP2 championship.

Indeed in spite of a rare mistake at the start of the second GP2 race he charged back through the field and eventually took the runners-up spot, mirroring the one he managed in race 1.

"I have great memories of the Istanbul Park, last year this was a defining race in the GP2 Championship for me and I am really looking forward to getting out there with the MP4-22," he continued.

"It is an amazing track to drive, with so many different challenges, and overtaking is possible. The circuit is pretty wide, which always helps when you are trying to pass.

"Having dropped down to the back of the field after spinning on the second lap last year, I spent the race working my way back up to second, it felt like a win and it would be great to get on the top step this year!" he concluded.
