Montreal, June 11(ANI): McLaren's Formula One racing ace Lewis Hamilton has said that he loves the challenge of driving at the Montreal street circuit, which is considered as one of F1's most dangerous tracks.
Hamilton has claimed pole in each of his two previous races of the Canadian Grand Prix, and clinched his maiden triumph in 2007 in only the sixth race of his career.
"There is real danger for the driver here. This is one of the older type of circuits which challenges the skills of every one of us," The Sun quoted Hamilton, as saying. There is not a lot of room for error because of the walls being so close, but I love the challenge of racing here. It is a great thrill. I will always remember my victory here in 2007. That was a fantastic feeling," he added.
Hamilton, who stormed back into the title bid after ending his nine-race losing streak in Turkey, further said that he and team-mate Jenson Button are looking forward to cut down Red Bull team's championship lead in Sunday's race.
"We want to build on the victory in Turkey, but I still don't think we have caught up with the Red Bulls. I am sure that we will be a lot closer to them here," he said.
After the Turkish Grand Prix triumph, Hamilton has closed the gap on championship leader Mark Webber to nine points. (ANI)
