Lewis Hamilton says his Mercedes team is going from strength to strength - and insists that his relationship with team-mate Nico Rosberg is fine.

Mercedes has won all six races in 2014, with Rosberg currently holding the advantage in the championship following his victory in Monaco.

Across the duration of the weekend relations between the two drivers were cool, with Hamilton suggesting that the relationship between the duo was no longer amicable.

But last week the Brit sent out a message on his Twitter feed and insists that relations are cordial.

"Collectively with the team... me and Nico spoke and we individually spoke to the team and saw the team," he said.

"Nothing’s really changed. We know the team has done a great job in terms of supporting us and the way it’s run with Paddy [Lowe] and Toto [Wolff].

"Their support for the both of us has been great. We’re now full steam ahead. We had dinner with the team yesterday and things have never been better. We’re just going from strength to strength.

"People have ups and downs, as I said, so it’s no different to any other experience me and Nico have had in our whole - God knows how many years we’ve been racing together. We move on, we’re pushing forward. There’s a long long way to go in the season so we’re looking forward to that battle."

Hamilton also expects the characteristics of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to suit Mercedes.

"We’re particularly strong on the straights, Mercedes are but I don’t know, maybe we will be surprised this weekend but long straights do suit us very well," he said.

"We have a very good power curve on our engine, Mercedes have done the best job with the engines. Renault and Ferrari would have to have done an exceptional job coming into this weekend, in terms of that area, to be able to keep up with us on the straights."
