IT will be a real family affair for Lewis Hamilton in Montreal today.

The motor racer's close relatives will all be watching him drive for glory in the Canadian Grand Prix.

As well as father Anthony and brother Nicolas, who live in Tewin, Hamilton will have a very special supporter trackside in his mother.

This will be the first race she has attended this season.

"My mum is here for the first time this year," said 23-year-old Hamilton, who grew up in Hatfield and Stevenage.

"She was meant to come to Monaco but she missed it and also Turkey.

"But she is happy to be here with all her friends.

"I invited her out and she seems to be having a great time."

Lewis takes great inspiration from his family, especially brother Nic.

He added: "I have got all my family here. "As always they are giving me 100 per cent confidence and support.

"I speak to my brother every day before I got out in qualifying and before the race and he always gives me a boost in confidence."

McLaren driver Hamilton leads the world championship by three points ahead of today's race in Canada.

He starts from pole position in Montreal ahead of BMW driver Robert Kubica.
