Hamilton: Mercedes 'trying to move mountains' to fix reliability gripes

Hamilton: Mercedes 'trying to move mountains' to fix reliability gripes

Mercedes have worked tirelessly to improve the reliability issues that hung like a cloud over Formula 1 pre-season testing says Lewis Hamilton ahead of the Australian Grand Prix.

The Mercedes power unit was the source of problems for both the Mercedes factory team and customer Williams across the six days of testing, and Hamilton says that his team have been pushing hard to fix the problems.

“We did leave with reliability issues, which I know the guys have been trying to move mountains over the last couple of weeks, trying to make sure we arrive in the best shape possible, so I truly believe in all of the hard work that they have done," said Hamilton.

“So we’re hoping that we start off on the right foot and I think that we arrive here, even with two less days of testing compared to last year, I think we’ve got quite a good grip on the car, and we arrive here the best prepared we can be.”

Despite the problems, Hamilton was able to complete the most laps of any individual driver in testing, and Mercedes topped the teams lap chart as well as the timesheets.

Asked of his confidence ahead of the season opener, Hamilton added, “I don’t really use the word confidence, I just think we worked as hard as we could. The runs went well and the days went well whilst we were in Barcelona."
