Lewis Hamilton has spoken about his walk along the pit lane on the opening day of the pre-season Formula 1 testing in Barcelona.

The first pre-season testing went underway at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Wednesday. Hamilton did not drive the car in the morning session, so he had a walk at the pit lane and took a look at every car. The Briton revealed the purpose of his walk.

“It’s interesting to see what other teams have done, in terms of sidepod designs and the front wings, the floor,” he said.

“It’s completely brand new. I’ve seen designs of our car over several months, but to see everyone else’s cars out there, I was just trying to get a close eye to see if I could see everything and why different teams had chosen different routes.

“We have absolutely no idea where we stand. All the cars are probably overweight, they’re heavier than they’ve ever been. I’m glad people have been able to stop them so far.”
