Hamilton to work closer with Kovalainen

Lewis Hamilton says he is looking forward to working closer with Heikki Kovalainen in 2008 for the benefit of McLaren after the team announced the two would be team mates next season.

"As soon as the checkered flag went in Brazil I began to count down the days until Australia," said Lewis. "I am really looking forward to 2008 and working with Heikki as my teammate. 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 McLaren Mercedes and I hope that Heikki will enjoy his first year with the team as much as I did mine," he added.
