Lewis Hamilton says he’s in the dark about where Mercedes stand compared to their rivals after Thursday’s engine shut downcast a slight shadow over what represented two promising blocks of winter testing.

Hamilton will be out to secure a seventh World Drivers’ Championship title in 2020.

“I think we’ve had a good winter test,” Hamilton said. “It’s not been perfect. We’ve found that we’ve got plenty of problems that we are trying to iron out. I don’t know how long it will take to iron out but that is never a bad thing necessarily to discover through testing.

“But otherwise, I think our performance has been quite good in the sense of laps we’ve got and the mileage apart from [on Thursday] and the processes and things we discovered along the way.

“I have no idea where we stand compared to the others. The team will probably have a better idea of that.”
