Hamilton took full responsibility for the lap-13 accident in the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday which effectively wrecked his world title hopes for another year.
The 26-year-old emerged unscathed after ploughing into a barrier in his McLaren after he and Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi bumped tyres at the end of the high-speed Kemmel straight.
With reigning champion Sebastian Vettel going on to take the flag, it means Hamilton is now 113 points adrift with 175 available.
Hamilton knows the only way to bounce back is by claiming a maiden win at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, a venue where he crashed out last year on the opening lap after running into Felipe Massa's Ferrari.
"Last year I won at Spa and failed to finish at Monza, so for this year I guess I'm looking to reverse that sequence," said Hamilton.
"I've already moved on from my non-finish in Belgium and I'm really looking forward to returning to Italy.
"We go into the weekend feeling pretty optimistic. I've never won at Monza and I'd love to get a good result this year."
The circuit is renowned as a temple of speed as it is the fastest of the year where cars hit just over 200mph along the straights.
Ferrari, in particular, and potentially McLaren are expected to be the main contenders for the front row as the track is not suited to Red Bull who have claimed all 12 pole positions this year.
"I'm particularly looking forward to qualifying," added Hamilton.
"DRS (drag reduction system) will make a huge difference to our laptimes, and I really want to get the maximum out of the car in qualifying, and then look forward to a strong race, of course.
"With unlimited use (of the DRS) in qualifying, and those four long straights, I think qualifying's going to be pretty intense.
"We'll be 20kmh faster at four key points of the circuit, so our qualifying times are going to be much faster than in the race. That should be pretty exciting.
"I think things are set for another very closely matched race, and I'm really looking forward to it."
