Lewis Hamilton believes his driving skills can lead him to victory in next week's Monaco Grand Prix and help him revive his bid for a second world Formula One title. Hamilton finished a close second to defending champion Sebastian Vettel in the Spanish Grand Prix Sunday where the high-speed cornering performance of the Red Bull cars gave them an edge on McLaren.

"You have amazing down-force in the high speed corners," said Hamiton to Vettel after the race. "Just amazing!"

Looking ahead to this Sunday's classic on the twisting street circuit, Hamilton smiled with optimism. "We have something good coming for Monaco. So I feel pretty positive. It's a very positive feeling now," he said.

"I didn't expect to be as quick as I was in that race - we were quicker than the Red Bulls except in the high-speed corners. So that's good."
