Lewis Hamilton is convinced his McLaren team will continue to win races this year following his first victory of the season in Turkey.
The British driver scored his first win since last year's Singapore Grand Prix in Istanbul, after benefiting from the crash between Red Bull teammates Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Hamilton believes there is no reason why he can't keep his momentum going and score more wins as the season progresses.
"Looking back on the weekend, it was such a great achievement for the team and for me to finally get a win this year," said Hamilton on his website. "I have been working hard all year for that win, so for the opportunity to finally arrive I felt it was a blessing. It felt good. I felt strong all weekend and knew I could challenge the Red Bulls and I did. It was wicked.
"The team did a solid job as they always do throughout the weekend and without their continued hard work both on and off the track, we would not be in the position we are to compete with the Red Bulls. So, for this, I am extremely grateful and I want to congratulate them on our success.
"It was almost 10 races since I had won a race, but it's all good. I think most drivers would be happy with that. For some its 20, 50 or 100, so I remain grateful to be in the position I am. I have no doubt at all that with this approach we can win more races this year."
The 2008 World Champion is adamant McLaren will also be competitive next week in Canada.
"We go to Canada feeling pretty highly motivated, and I can just sense there's a momentum building within the team – I felt the same feeling in 2008, and I know that we can achieve great things together over the next six months, so it's all good."
