Lewis Hamilton Is Already Back Testing In Jerez

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Lewis Hamilton has returned to his testing duties in Jerez, Spain – for the first time without driver aids, that’s no traction control – as of the 2008 season no driver aids are sure going to be interesting. Of 73 laps he tested Lewis set the day’s fastest lap of 1:19.371s .

Here’s what Hamilton had to say:

It was pretty cool to be back behind the wheel of my car again today, it has felt like a very long time since the Brazilian Grand Prix, I have missed my car!

I have really kick started my preparations for the 2008 season today and there are only 101 days to go until Australia, I know the time is going to go really quickly, but I am feeling pretty impatient already.

It was the first time I have driven the car without driver aids and it was good fun. It does feel quite different and of course there is some adapting to do in driving style, but in GP2 we didn’t have driver aids, so I have some recent experience of it.

We also did some work on aero and chassis developments for next year’s car.
