"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out. Obviously, Monaco was a decent race for us, where we sort of got back and hopefully we can continue".
When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.
Asked why he had experienced so many crashes, he paused before he said: "I don't know".
It meant Hamilton lost a place to Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo at his stop, and the Briton had a nervy moment when Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen emerged alongside him after his much later stop. 'I will never do that because it has brought me to where I am right now, and after the race it is not the right time to talk.
