Obviously one of the big talking points for British fans this season is Lewis Hamilton's move from McLaren to Mercedes. How do you think he will get on in 2013?
I think it is a great thing for F1 that we have someone of Lewis' talent heading off to another team. It gives us four British drivers across four different teams. I think it is inevitable in life that you will move on at a certain point. He had been with McLaren for 13 years - starting as a young driver through to winning his championship there. It will be the making of him as a man and a racer because you do need different experiences and environments to really develop as an individual. He can re-set everything going to Mercedes because he is not Lewis the teenager, happy to be there and desperate to be a F1 driver. He is an existing world champion and goes there as such and will build new relationships. They see the Lewis of today rather than the Lewis as a young kid who should be grateful for the opportunity.
Can he win there?
Yes, course he can. That team has wins in its DNA and won the championship in its Brawn guise with Jenson [Button], Lewis' old team-mate. So, yeah, of course he can [win].
