Formula One News » F1 2013 – Hamilton: Barcelona will be a “good benchmark” Posted on 03/05/2013
Lewis Hamilton says he feels very “comfortable” with his Mercedes car now and that the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix will be a “good benchmark” of the progress his Mercedes team has made.
“We’ve been boosted by the results that we’ve had at the start of the season and to come away from the first four races with two third and two fifth places feels like a real achievement,”
“I’m feeling very comfortable in the car now and we know the areas that we need to improve so a lot of effort is being put in to close that gap to the front-runners.
“Barcelona should be a good test as we know the circuit so well having completed most of the pre-season test programme there.
“The weekend should be a good benchmark of the progress we have made since then.”
