That's what I've always enjoyed since my dad would say my first go-kart was fifth-hand, or something, and he would say it was like a four-poster bed. "It looked like both Mercedes were struggling in morning and afternoon so I'm pretty sure they will be fine tomorrow".
Stevenage-born Hamilton added: "I had a great group of people who were in front of my garage today all day long, sending really positive energy".
"I really want to improve and redeem myself because past year we did not achieve a great result from my side here", he told reporters in a press conference at the Galeri Petronas, here, Tuesday.
