Plenty of work for Hamilton
McLaren ace Lewis Hamilton has admitted there is plenty of work to do on his car ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix next month.
Hamilton and team-mate Jenson Button struggled with their Pirelli tyres during the Bahrain Grand Prix last Sunday on what was a poor weekend for the Formula One outfit.
A couple of poor pit-stops and severe tyre degradation put an end to any hope of Hamilton denying Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel his first win of the 2012 season.
Now the 2008 world champion is looking ahead to the Spanish Grand Prix at Montmelo on May 13 and the 27-year-old is set to use the Mugello testing sessions early next month to address the issues with the MP4-27.
Hamilton has admitted there is plenty of work to do on the car before the next meeting in Spain.
He told the Daily Telegraph: "I need to get back in the car. We need to figure out why the tyres are going off.
"If there are other things to test or ways to figure out I will be the one to do it, not let someone else do it."
