Happy Hamilton eyes another win in Canada

Lewis Hamilton on Tuesday admitted he is wearing a smile while travelling to Canada for this weekend's eighth round of the world championship.

It could be said that the 2008 world champion inherited the win in Turkey recently, but it was his pressure on the Red Bulls that preceded the now famous Mark Webber/Sebastian Vettel crash.

Until Istanbul Park, pundits were predicting a Red Bull-walkover for the balance of the 2010 calendar, but Turkey showed that McLaren are back on the pace.

And with a powerful Mercedes engine and the F-duct, the long straights of Circuit Gilles Villeneuve could see the British team out in front.
