Hamilton looking for Sepang boost

Updated: March 21, 2012

Lewis Hamilton aims to set the record straight in Malaysia this weekend after a morale-boosting debrief with his McLaren race engineers.

The 2008 Formula One champion qualified on pole position for the Australian season-opener last Sunday but was unusually slow off the mark and beaten into the first corner by teammate Jenson Button, who went on to win.

Hamilton, who finished third, had been baffled by his surprising lack of pace and his unhappiness was evident afterwards.
