The McLaren rookie Lewis Hamilton, says he has no fears as he enters his next stage at the Canadian Grand Prix. He has earned 5 victories in the first five races of the season and he has finished second at the Monaco Grand Prix behind his team mate Fernando Alonso. With the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway lined up for the US Grand Prix the following week, the young Briton will be facing two circuits he has never driven before. "I'm a very, very fast learner," Hamilton said. "We do a lot of simulation, looking at data, on-board footage and watching races and playing a computer game or something. As you saw in Australia and Malaysia I had no problems, so I've no worries about the next two tracks. This will be my debut at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and because of the chances there to pass it looks like a great track to compete on”. Even though he is a very good driver he knows he has a lot to learn, his inexperience pushes him to make mistakes and he sited the crash he had in Monaco during a practice. "Coming into the season I knew it would be a very steep learning curve, and as you saw (in Monaco), I took another step. Every time I get in the car I'm learning, and it's just going to get better and better, more and more competitive, more consistent. The bond with the team is stronger than ever, the feeling within the team is stronger than ever. But everyone has areas they can improve on, and I have no doubts I can improve and become a better driver." The 22 year-old is now the fans’ and media’s centre of attention; he is now dealing with it, let’s hope he focuses on the race and that every thing goes fine.
