Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton has been updating his ‘people’ – he doesn’t like the word fans – on Twitter about how testing is going with the new McLaren MP4-12C.
He also admitted he didn’t take part in testing sessions for the new Pirelli tyres, because they will undergo changes before the final version is wheeled out for the start of the championship in March.
The former F1 world championship winner tweeted: “”These new tyres r ok, not too big a difference. Rears r weak tho, they degrade fast. Reason I didn’t do the test is the tyres will change.”
Then he added: “Car will change and so it was best to let the test drivers get all the data needed for the sim and wind tunnel.”
He revealed he is looking forward to testing the new MP4-12C ‘2moro, sick car!’ with team mate – and fellow former world champion title holder – Jenson Button.
Full of enthusiasm he tweeted: “Our kers is the best. It shud deliver. No holiday yet, am working flat out today with appearances until mid dec. Pushing guys at MTC too.”
