Hamilton optimistic despite testing crash

05-formula-1-spain-spanish-test-testing-action-lewis-hamilton-mercedes-jerez-day_3073869Lewis Hamilton had been an optimistic day, despite crashing his newW05 at first day of Jerez pre-season testing.

The Mercedes speedy extraordinarily done some fastest lap during the early hours of the first test day at Jerez, unluckily the accident happened caused by a front-wing failure.

“For me it’s an incredibly positive start to be the first car out on track and completing a good number of laps,” said Hamilton.

“Other teams have been going out for single-lap runs, starting a few hours after we had, so to have started running through our test programme was very encouraging. The car feels quite good, especially considering it’s so early in our programme.”

“It’s unfortunate to end the day early when everyone has worked so hard, but we’ll make that track time back and it’s better to have these things happen now than [at the opening race] in Melbourne.

“I’m really proud of the team for what they’ve achieved in getting us here and we’ll keep pushing.”

The German Nico Rosberg would be driving the new Mercedes F1 W05 on Wednesday.
