Hamilton: I admit that it is overwhelming to have achieved this third place


Sports Writing, Jun 19 (EFE).- The seven-time English Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who finished third this Sunday in the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth in the World Cup, declared this Sunday at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Montreal that “honestly, it’s quite overwhelming to have achieved this third place.”

“Honestly, I’ll admit it’s been quite overwhelming to get this third place. It’s been an uphill battle with the car this year, as a team, but we’re still vigilant, focused and we’re never going to give up,” said 37-year-old Hamilton, who two years ago he equaled the seven world titles of the German Michael Schumacher and who also holds another historical record, that of victories: 103, of which seven were achieved in Canada, where precisely only the ‘Kaiser’ equals that number of triumphs.

“It’s something I’m very proud of and all these people inspire me, so I want to thank everyone who is here and everyone who is in the factory,” said the spectacular and eccentric champion of Stevenage this Sunday. in one of his ‘talisman circuits’.

“The guys up front are a little too quick for us at the moment, but I gave it my all and I think we’re getting close,” said Sir Lewis, who – in his toughest season in years – sits sixth in the World Cup, with 77 points, 98 less than the Dutch Max Verstappen (Red Bull); leader of the World Championship, who dethroned him last year on the last lap of the last race, in Abu Dhabi.

“We have to keep pushing and pushing, and we hope we can be in the fight with these guys,” said Hamilton this Sunday after finishing third in Canada, where he achieved his second podium of the season, after the one he obtained in Bahrain in the opening round of the championship.
