World Champion Lewis Hamilton says he has moved on from losing a near-certain victory at the Monaco Grand Prix following a strategic error by Mercedes.

Hamilton led proceedings throughout but Mercedes opted to pit him under the Safety Car, dropping him down to third position.

Hamilton refused to blame Mercedes in the immediate aftermath of the race and ahead of this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix he emphasised that he is not reflecting on the result two weeks ago.

"I don’t look back, I’m looking forwards," he said. "I have not thought about the last race for a long time and I’ve just really been thinking about the next race, putting my mind to other things, training and trying to come back strong this weekend.

"So it’s really irrelevant what happened in the past now. There’s nothing you can do about it so there’s no point dwelling on it."

Hamilton also dismissed suggestions that he had considered returning home when he stopped on the slowing down lap at Portier.

"I’m really not going back to Monaco, I’ve moved on," he said.

"I don’t even have to think about it. I’m literally moving on. I couldn’t care less about it. I’ve got lots and lots of races to come, lots of improvements that can be made, I’ve got a great team, got a great car and there’s a championship to be won so that’s all I’m focused on."
