Hamilton encouraged by new McLaren
January 11, 2008 11:55 IST
The 23-year-old completed 103 laps at the Jerez circuit while new team mate Heikki Kovalainen of Finland did 101.
"I saw the completed car for the first time on Monday at the team's launch in Stuttgart and I have been pretty impatient since then," said Hamilton in a team statement.
"My first impressions are encouraging. I covered over 103 laps, which is 456kms, today. Considering this is only the second day the car has been on track, I am pretty happy with that.
"We have a lot of work to do, but now we have a real understanding of where we are starting from."
