Hamilton: To complete more than 90 laps is a big positive

Lewis Hamilton took over driving duties at McLaren from Jenson Button for Sunday's test session in Barcelona. Hamilton completed 93 laps of the Circuit de Catalunya despite suffering a few technical problems during the morning session. The British driver declared the mileage covered over the day was a "big positive" after the McLaren team have fallen behind their rivals a little recently after being hit with various reliability issues over the last few test sessions. "This was a positive day: we've been focusing on our programme, trying to complete as many laps as possible, improve reliability and understand the Pirelli tyres. We're learning more and more about them every day," The 2008 World Champion said. "We've had a few technical issues with this car, but the guys have been working incredibly to rectify them. To get more than 90 laps under my belt today was a big positive, and I'm looking forward to a trouble-free day tomorrow."
