Hamilton looking to continue momentum
Lewis Hamilton says he is 'super-motivated' going into next week's European Grand Prix after winning last time out in Montreal.
The 2008 World Champion rose to the top of the drivers' standings thanks to his victory at the Circuit des Gilles Villeneuve and is understandably full of confidence ahead of the next meeting in Valencia.
The Spanish street circuit has a number of similarities with the track in Montreal and is expected to produce another exciting race due to its long straights and tight corners.
After experiencing some difficulties earlier in the season, Hamilton says he is desperate to continue where he left off and is confident of securing his first European Grand Prix title as he looks to build momentum for his home race in July.
"We may have won in Canada, but there's an enormous amount of pressure to keep racking up good results at every Grand Prix," he said. "The intensity of this year's championship means there's so little breathing space.
"I'll be heading to Valencia feeling super-motivated to get another strong result and maintain my momentum before we head into Silverstone and the British Grand Prix."
