Glass half full.
Lewis Hamilton: It’s been good to have a break after Russia. Over time you reflect on each race weekend and what you might have done differently, so you can learn from each experience and move on. I’m really proud of the guys in the garage: we’ve had a hard time but they’re doing a fantastic job and I’m really happy with how we’ve been working together. Every weekend, we’ve got the car into a great place setup-wise – I just haven’t been fully able to exploit it. So the glass is half full for me. It will be a big challenge but there’s a long way to go with 17 races left and, if the last four are anything to go by, there’s a lot more still to come from us. The team has been on it 24/7 since returning from Russia so I’m confident they’ll get to the bottom of the problems we’ve been having. I know I’m still quick.
I’ve known that since day one in testing and, when I’ve had clean air and a damage-free car this season, I’ve shown it on track. I head to Spain confident of a good weekend.
