I look forward to working with Heikki as my team mate - Hamilton
After a real soap opera, Lewis Hamilton finally knows who will race beside him next season as Heikki Kovalainen was confirmed by the Woking-based team today. Hamilton is looking forward to work with Heikki and hopes that his new team mate will experience a good debut season with the team.
Hamilton “As soon as the chequered flag went in Brazil I began to count down the days until Australia. I am really looking forward to 2008 and working with Heikki as my team mate. Together with the team we will do everything we can to ensure that our Championship challenge is as strong and focused as possible. My first year in Formula 1 was incredible and I was so fortunate to spend it with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes and I hope that Heikki will enjoy his first year with the team as much as I did mine.”
