Formula One’s defending World champion and 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix winner Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes said today that he is looking forward to this weekend’s racing, especially following his spectacular battle with teammate Nico Rosberg en route to his victory under the stars last year.

“Last year we had an amazing race here, it was really fantastic, great fun, huge huge challenge both for Nico and for me and hopefully... that was the first night race here,”

“It was honestly the best race, visibly, that I had seen here in Bahrain so it was great and I’m looking forward to that. I think with these tyres and with Ferrari in the mix, I think we could see a real special race here.” – Lewis Hamilton

Hamilton was speaking at the conference alongside Sergio Perez of Force India, Max Verstappen of Toro Rosso, Will Stevens of Manor, Pastor Maldonado of Lotus and Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing.
