Lewis Hamilton blames poor start on bad fortune
Formula One star Lewis Hamilton is eager to put his poor start to the season behind him with a strong finish at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix.
The McLaren driver has so far this year been overshadowed by teammate Jenson Button who currently stands at the top of the drivers' rankings, while Hamilton lies in sixth.
But he believes that this is merely down to a run of bad luck and that in normal circumstances "the driver with the biggest balls and the most talent" will come out on top.
"I don't feel I'm at the point where I need to 'turn it around' because what needs turning around is just my fortunes," the former world champion said. "I've just been a bit unfortunate in certain situations."
Hamilton was on course for a second-place finish at the last grand prix in Spain before a problem with his tyre forced him to retire two laps from the end.
The Monaco Grand Prix takes place this Sunday (May 16th).
