Hamilton reveals top thee F1 tracks

Lewis Hamilton has revealed his three favourite tracks on the Formula 1 calendar, with one coming up this week at the Canadian Grand Prix. The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve's spot in Montreal and propensity to produce exciting racing with overtakes means it makes the cut.

Hamilton has six wins in Montreal, perhaps also playing a role in his liking of the track.

A seventh this weekend will see him equal Michael Schumacher for the most Canadian GP wins, and Hamilton is relishing a return to a circuit he says is widely regarded as one of F1's best.

He said: "The circuit is fantastic and it's a track that I think everyone enjoys. It's definitely in the top three of the favourite circuits of the year."

Hamilton was then pushed to reveal the other two circuits on his personal podium, with the Circuit of the Americas and Silverstone getting the nod.

"We've got Monaco which is spectacular," he said. "I live there, I love it. But you all know how the race is from the day before. It's not a race that… I personally don't enjoy driving the race

"Austin, you can overtake, it's a brand new circuit but it's got a lot of great character, you can actually follow.

"Same with here, it's a race track where you can get quite close. It is a street circuit on this incredible little island in this big city and it's just very unique in its own way.

"It's very high speed braking, big stops and there are some big curves.

"And then the Silverstone grand prix, that track has history galore, the layout is just incredible.

"It's all high speed and medium speed and it's the ultimate test… probably of all the tracks the ultimate test of the downforce of a car and you've got some of the coolest sections: Copse, Maggotts, Becketts, Stowe.

"I don't think there's many tracks in the world that have a better combination of corners in my personal opinion. But also there, you can, being that it's wide enough, you can naturally follow and there is some really good racing there so that's why it's my personal favourite."
