LEWIS Hamilton flies to Malaysia today (Monday) to prepare for Sunday's second grand prix of the season.

With the dust barely settled at track side in Melbourne and the champagne corks still popping in the paddock, McLaren attentions have already switched to the Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit near Kuala Lumpur.

Despite the soaring temperatures in Melbourne yesterday (Sunday), the supremely fit Hamilton was quite happy in the cockpit of his McLaren car.

He said: "I felt fantastic. I never thought it would have been as physically a breeze as it was.

"It is great preparation for Malaysia, so bring it on. I am really looking forward to it."

Looking to his main rivals, Australian Grand Prix winner Hamilton said: "Going into the next few races, we obviously need to try and continue with the momentum that we have.

"As I said, we could have gone quicker, so I am not particularly bothered about the Ferraris' pace.

"BMW and Williams have done a great job as well, so we need to keep on pushing and the team needs to keep on pushing.

"As will I and I really hope going into the next race that we will have a great result again."

Hamilton was runner-up in Malaysia last year behind then McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso.
