Mercedes will finally officially reveal its first big upgrade for the W14 tomorrow in Monaco Grand Prix free practice.

Ahead of the race weekend, Lewis Hamilton says he is “so excited” to finally try it out.

“The upgrade, it will be difficult to see how it works at this kind of track but I’m hopeful that it puts us a little bit closer to these guys,” the Briton said.

“I don’t think we will be fighting for a win necessarily, but hopefully we will be more in the fight.”

Lewis then praised the hard work Mercedes has been doing.

“There’s a lot of people on the team that have had all the success that we’ve had in the past and there’s a lot of people that haven’t had that success yet and are super hungry.

“I’m really encouraged when I do go back to the factory and see just how hard everyone is working. Last year we were a little bit lost in terms of how to fix the issue that we had.

“I feel like the team now have the north star, they know exactly where we need to go and how to get there.

“The amount of work that has gone in is incredible and I’m very, very grateful. I’ve been so excited to get in the car and feel these changes.

“I feel that hopefully puts us on the right path to progress forward and try and catch the guys ahead,” Hamilton concluded.
