SITTING at the top of the drivers' standings with 62 points, the summer break in the Formula 1 calendar has given Lewis Hamilton time to prepare and reflect.

The 23-year-old, whose family live in Tewin, said: "Looking to the season so far, it feels like a different championship to last year, 2007 was very intense and consistency was incredibly important.

"This year, everybody's results have been more varied and every driver who has won a race has also failed to score on at least two other occasions.

"That's made getting strong results even more important, but I think we'll see consistency becoming crucial as we head towards the end of the season."

Lewis is busy preparing for the European Grand Prix, but it isn't the first time he has raced in Valencia.

At the start of 2007, the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team was launched in the Spanish city, and Hamilton tested at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit.

Lewis added: "I enjoy visiting new racetracks and I'm looking forward to getting into the cockpit on Friday.
