F1: Ferrari unveil anniversary logo after tobacco ad probe

He was on target to win at the Russian Grand Prix towards the end of the year, but with Hamilton fighting Sebastian Vettel for the title, Mercedes told him to move over and let his teammate take the lead.

His Ferrari arch-rival Sebastian Vettel swept home in an Australian thriller past year, getting a jump on Hamilton after Mercedes miscalculated a pit stop under virtual safety auto conditions.

Asked if Ferrari were in a better situation now than 12 months ago, the 31-year-old replied: "Yeah quite frankly because last year's winter testing didn't go well for us".

The indications from pre-season testing suggest Ferrari have a performance advantage over Mercedes.

Hamilton has won 51 of the past 100 grands prix for Mercedes and four of the past five championships. "So far the atmosphere is good, the spirit is right within the team and we will try to carry that into the season". We got a bit lucky with the safety vehicle to grab the win.

"In terms of the team, we've got so many incredible people within the team, and the energy.it's inspiring to see so many people so pumped, pulling together". Our vehicle seems to work fine, there are no problems at this stage.

The cars feature new front and rear wings, aimed at making it easier for them to get closer and overtake, while the driver that sets the fastest lap can earn an additional championship point, so long as he finishes in the top 10 in Sunday's race.

But Vettel admits he has no idea yet whether the new rules will help lead to more wheel-to-wheel racing. So, everyone takes a step after testing. Didn't seem to make a difference. So that's kind of a good feeling to have, especially after a year when I didn't meet my targets, now I know it's possible again.

For the past two seasons Hamilton has clinched pole position in Melbourne but has seen fierce rival Sebastian Vettel clinch victory on the Sunday, he will be hoping for different fortunes this weekend.

"My last Formula One race was in Abu Dhabi 2010, so I am looking forward to going to Australia with a few things to cover and learn".
