Lewis Hamilton believes his Mercedes is capable of helping him achieve a maiden win with his new team and told Sky Sports that he can win a race this year. The 2008 World Champion has made a decent start to the 2013 season, although Bahrain didn’t go to plan for the silver arrows.
Although Mercedes have only won a solitary race in their 3 seasons of competitiveness, Hamilton has expressed his confidence of standing on top podium at some stage this season.
“I am Hopeful we can win this year, particularly as we have things coming in the pipeline with upgrades and improvements for the car”. Hamilton told Sky Sports f1’s Martin Brundle in an exclusive interview.
When asked about his view on moving teams in the close season, Hamilton stated “The team is different, different set of people who I’m really enjoying working with and it’s a new set of challenges, which is what I wanted”.
Lewis Hamilton has obviously enjoyed making the transaction from Mclaren to Mercedes and his next opportunity to try and win for the first time with Mercedes is the Spanish GP in two weeks time.
