McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh believes winning the Monaco Grand Prix would be a deserved reward for Lewis Hamilton.
The British driver has started from pole position twice this year, and he would have been first on the grid in Spain had he not being sent to the back of the grid for not having enough fuel onboard at the end of qualifying.
Hamilton, however, is yet to finish higher than third this season and Whitmarsh says he would like his driver to be the sixth winner in 2012 in next week's race in Monte Carlo.
"He is in that frame of mind, he deserves it – there is absolutely no doubt about it," said Whitmarsh. "We have to work hard, make sure he has got a good car, make sure we don't make any mistakes, and make sure he is in a position to fulfill his potential at a circuit where he has won in F3, GP2 and F1. He has won it in every category, so he would like to win it again."
Although Whitmarsh believes his team will be in good shape for fight for victory in the principality, he is aware that it is impossible to make predictions this season.
"We have won more Monacos than anyone else, we go there with the belief that we can win, but anyone who makes predictions in this sport at the moment would be nuts," he said. "It really is virtually impossible to make these predictions – five races in, five winners, five different constructors – and it could be after Monaco six races and six different winners. I hope not six constructors – I hope we can win that."
