Lewis Hamilton might have had enough of Monaco. The Briton says he is glad “the race is over” and doesn’t plan on re-watching it.
After a disappointing Monaco Grand Prix, that saw him finish in P7, Lewis Hamilton is not dwelling on the result and is instead thinking about the future.
“There’s a long, long way to go,” said the Briton.
“We can’t afford another weekend like this, but I’m grateful I finished and got some points, fastest lap; every point you get on a bad weekend like this can hopefully count towards something at the end.
“I’m glad the race is over as it was the longest race, it was so long. I’ve said it time and time again: [it] doesn’t [matter] what position you’re in, this track is not fun to race on, [you] can’t overtake.
“Of course, it’s great winning, but even when you’re winning and far ahead it’s also boring. I’m sure for Max it was a pretty chilled afternoon for him.

“For me, I’ll switch off. Weekend’s done – I probably won’t re-watch this race, I might watch the highlights to get an understanding of where I lost potentially three places for example, otherwise [I will] put my focus on something else.
“Luckily I have lots of other things I do, so [I’ll] try and turn towards something else.”
Lewis was asked if his 2021 battle with Verstappen is the closest one he’s ever faced.
“No. I’ve been racing since I was eight. Each one is different in its own way, but I don’t think it’s worse or better.
“It’s going to be tough. I told you at the beginning they’ve got a championship-winning car, and they’re going to be very hard to beat.
“I’ve been serious about it all year, these races, and we’ve won races which we shouldn’t have won, like in Bahrain, but it’s not over,” concluded Lewis.
