Lewis Hamilton does not believe F1 needs to reinstate a Sunday morning warm-up session.

With the top ten cars no longer having to qualify with race levels of fuel in 2010, the concept of a pre-race session - scrapped several years ago - is once again possible.

Some believe the 30 minute Sunday warm-up should be reinstated in order to give drivers a chance to adjust to the hefty levels of fuel that must be carried in races this season.

But when asked about the proposal during an interview with Italy's La Stampa, McLaren driver Hamilton answered: "Hey, we're all good enough drivers.

"Another session would always be more comfortable, but it's not needed -- just the formation laps are enough to get used to the longer braking (distances).

"Fingers crossed, it should be fun," the Briton enthused.
