Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton insists that he will catch teammate Nico Rosberg in the drivers' standings again.

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that he will be able to catch Nico Rosberg in the Formula 1 drivers' championship again this season.

The Briton won four races in a row earlier in the season to lead the standings, but a retirement in the Canadian Grand Prix earlier this month allowed his Mercedes teammate to climb above him.

The 2008 world champion told Sky Sports News: "Montreal was a bit of a strange one for me. I felt I had the pace right from the beginning of the weekend, but things just never quite came together. It's frustrating when these things are out of your hands.

"I caught up before and I can catch up again. It's going to take another four wins to make the difference so I'm going to do my best to get those results. Right now, I'm just looking ahead to the next race in Austria and another chance to catch up to the lead."

The first Austrian Grand Prix since 2003 will take place next weekend.
