Before the Canadian Grand Prix, pressure on Lewis Hamilton increases. Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari threatens to split, but Montreal is the favorite line of the three-time Formula One World Champion.
Maybe others would have broken their heads after the recent setbacks, but Lewis Hamilton remains stressed. Whether visiting the NBA Finals with buddy Neymar, When playing with his dogs or on the Jetski, the three-time Formula One World Champion sends a clear message to the social media ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix: The last surprisingly long delay on Ferrari does not make the British uncertain.
We will definitely attack the Reds in Canada. This is a real duel, but there are still fourteen races to run,”Hamilton said before the race on Sunday (20:00 clock at RTL) in Montreal. 25 Points is the delay of the Mercedes pilot on top rider Sebastian Vettel (Heppenheim) after six races. This is recoverable, but Hamilton is under a lot of pressure after his seventh place in Monaco.
The silver arrows did not manage to use the tires optimally in the principality, were at the double victory of Vettel and Kimi rakes against the Scuderia without a chance.” It hurts, but we’re not the favorites in the World Cup this year. At the moment, the Ferrari, Mercedes Motorsport Chief Toto Wolff said, “You have a very strong package.” Now, the workshop team with Hamilton and the third Valtteri Bottas (Finland) after three years has to confront the dominance of an almost forgotten challenge.
Wolff: “Season is a marathon”

Mercedes also seems to be travelling to North America with some doubts. Now, however, Lewis Hamilton is not exactly known for his patience. The 32-year-old wants to win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, as so often in the past. On the Ile Notre-Dame he already won five times, as often as anywhere else. Even in the last two years, the Vice World Champion was at the top of the podium, Vettel only won 2013 for ex-employer Red Bull.
“This has always been a very good route for me,” said Hamilton, who started the trip to overseas early. Among other things, he followed the NBA basketball final series on the spot. In the duel between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers, he sat next to FC Barcelona’s football star Neymar in the front row, taking selfies and having fun. After that, it went on to New York.
