Hamilton looking forward to India

“Through no fault of my own, my weekend in Korea was a wasted opportunity – but it's already far behind me, and I'm really looking forward to these next two back-to-back races," he noted, “The Indian Grand Prix went well for me last year – I had an absolutely straightforward drive, running second from start to finish - and it's a circuit I like, so I think we can have a good weekend there.

"The circuit has a good feel to it, and you can tell it's quite different from the normal places we visit. There are a couple of unusual factors - firstly, the approaches to turns three and four are incredibly wide, almost like a motorway, in order to stimulate different lines into the corner and encourage overtaking. Secondly, the combination of turns ten and eleven is also pretty special. It's a huge, bowl-shaped double-apex right-hander, a bit like Spoon at Suzuka.

It's unusual for a new circuit to have such fast corners, and it's really enjoyable when you get the car hooked up through there – the lateral g feels great, and I'm already looking forward to it.”
