Lewis Hamilton admits that it is difficult to predict anything at the Formula 1 pre-season testing in Barcelona.

The upcoming pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will be the first real opportunity for the F1 teams to compare their performance. Furthermore, the introduction of the new technical regulations may shake up the pecking order. Hamilton has spoken about his expectations as of now.

“I have no idea what to expect when we get to get on track. I hope that the simulator is accurate. If not, we’ll make corrections and push forward,” he commented.

“This is actually the most exciting part of the year for me, I would say, at least up until this point. When you see all of these engineers, all the men and women that have been working so hard, you see the smiles on their faces and the excitement, because all this work that we’ve been doing for months and months.

“The pieces are now built and they’ve been put together, and then you get to see the car delivered, and then there’s two of us who get to go out and drive. It’s a special experience to go through with everyone.”
