IN BRIEF: Motor Racing - Hamilton content.

MOTORSPORT: Lewis Hamilton brushed aside his double dose of disappointment on his first official test day of the new year.

Hamilton twice went off the track in McLaren's new car on the final day of a three-day session at the Jerez circuit, Spain. Hamilton blamed the lack of engine braking along with traction control - now banned under new regulations.

He said: "Without these controls on the entry to corners there is a lot more locking of the rear wheels, and when you're on the limit and pushing that's what happens."
