Lewis Hamilton's first day of testing for MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS was brought to an early conclusion today by a technical problem on the F1 W04.
Nico Rosberg will be back at the wheel of the F1 W04 tomorrow for the third day of the test.
Lewis Hamilton: We had a good start but then unfortunately we had a failure which brought our day to an early end. These things happen and it's all part of testing. Of course, it's better that we get these small issues out of the way sooner rather than later, and the guys are working really hard to overcome them. From the few short laps that I completed this morning, my general feeling was very positive. I got a good understanding of where the base of the car is and, whilst we need to do work in certain areas, it was good to have some laps to get a feel for what those areas are. I've told the guys that we just need to keep pushing and I know that we all will be doing that.
