Lewis Hamilton: “Bahrain was a tough race so to come away with the win was a great feeling and it’s amazing the start we’ve had this year. Next up it’s Barcelona, which is a great place to start the European phase of the season. The weather is always good and the circuit is a real test of every aspect of the car, which is why we go testing there. It’s a great city, too. The architecture is stunning and it’s a young, vibrant place so I always enjoy the weekend. Racing there is tough – it’s usually hot and the circuit is incredibly physical.
But the support I have in Spain is growing every time we go and, having tasted success there for the first time last year, I want to do it in even better style this time.”
