Lewis Hamilton explain the brand new McLaren MP4-27 performance in the Jerez testing, Hamilton says he is very happy with the trouble free run and its more comfortable drive comparatively last season. The McLaren speedy set fourth fastest lap-time in third day test, and he added that the lap timing depends on fuel loads in the car.

“I’m happy to be back and it was a day without any troubles and quite a few laps compared to last year. All positive so far,” Hamilton told Autosport.

“I was a bit cautious going into today because looking at the times Jenson was experiencing over the last couple of days, I wasn’t really sure where we were going to be.

“But when I got the new tyres on I was able to extract the grip quite easily and felt there was definitely something we could work with.”

“This car is definitely not predictable at the moment, being brand new. We haven’t yet figured out the right set-up of the car,” said Hamilton. “There are lots of different test items that we’re going through.

“It feels like an evolution of last year’s car but also there are some things that are not so good. The downforce on the rear for instance, is not as good through the high-speed corners as it was last year, but I’m sure we’ll get that back.

“The car’s better on the braking this year for some reason. Corner entry seems to be quite good.”

“I think you can see the Red Bull looks quick. The Lotus looks quite impressive,” You never know what fuel loads people are on. I think we’ve been quite aggressive with our fuel loads.”
