Hamilton 'never expected' winning streak
16 May 2014 – Lewis Hamilton has admitted that he "never expected" to achieve such a long winning streak in Formula 1.
Having taken the chequered flag first in all rounds since his engine-related retirement at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, the Mercedes driver heads to Monaco with the chance of extending his victory run to five.
"The last few races have been incredible. I never expected I'd win four consecutive Grands Prix in my career and I'd love to continue that run," said Hamilton, who has a three-point lead over team-mate Nico Rosberg.
"I've had some work to do in terms of getting the car exactly as I want it after the weekend in Spain: it was so close between our cars at the end and I need to keep pushing to find any extra edge I can.
"The car has been strong at every race so far this season and I'm sure it'll be the same in Monaco."
In the teams' standings, Mercedes leads second-placed Red Bull by a sizeable margin of 113 points.
