Hamilton upbeat after first day at work in Brackley
Mercedes AMG Petronas

Lewis Hamilton presented himself at the Mercedes factory for a British media day, and found himself looking ahead to the coming season with a significant amount of anticipation. Although the Brit would be forgiven for some nerves after leaving McLaren behind him, it seems as though Hamilton is relishing working with his new team.

Talking about what he had seen and heard so far, Lewis said: "There is a great spirit here. The guys seem hungrier than any group of people I've seen before. They seem seriously hungry to win and excited they have another shot at it this year. Every year there was always a great atmosphere at McLaren. But it's a different environment to come to and a different feeling because it's new and fresh. The guys seem to be just as on it if not more."
