Hamilton aims to break F1's parity
After a record seven different winners in as many races, Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton is looking to capitalise on his triumph in Montreal and break the unprecedented run of parity with another victory at this weekend's European GP.
Besides keeping his eye on the most wide-open field of challengers ever seen, Hamilton will have to fend off Fernando Alonso's improved Ferrari and two-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel, going for his third consecutive win at Valencia.
Hamilton leads Alonso by two points, and Red Bull's Vettel by three.
The McLaren driver says "We may have won in Canada, but there's an enormous amount of pressure. ... So we need to back it up in Valencia with another strong result."
