Lewis Hamilton says he has no concerns about nailing the start of the Spanish Grand Prix despite failing to capitalise on pole positions earlier in the season.

The Mercedes driver starts from his third pole position of the season at the Circuit de Catalunya, but faces pressure to give his F1 title aspirations a boost by stopping Nico Rosberg's four-race winning streak.

Starting from pole position for the third time this season, poor starts from the top spot in Australia and Bahrain preluded though afternoons on those occasions for Hamilton. However, the defending champion doesn't expect a repeat in Spain, pointing out he started well in China and Russia, albeit from lower positions.

"In China I had the best start of the whole grid and the last start I think was so-so. So I'm hoping for another good start. I think whatever issues we had have definitely been rectified.

"Ultimately with the starts I think for all of us in Formula 1 they're always up and down. But the starts have been great this weekend so I don't see why in the race it won't be too."
