Lewis Hamilton says that he is feeling good after dominating the times during practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Hamilton topped both sessions and had a three-tenths of a second advantage over team-mate Nico Rosberg.

"It's been a pretty decent day for us," he said.

"The car felt good from the outset which allowed us to spend time getting to grips with the tyres. The softs in particular seem to be working well and we saw a fair difference in lap time between them and the mediums.

"The focus today was on the second session as the timing and conditions reflects that of the rest of the weekend and the difference in temperature between the sessions was quite large.

"The key was to not react too much to that change in terms of our approach to set-up and we seemed to manage that well. It was great driving under the spotlights here: the circuit looks even better at night and you don't really notice a difference in terms of visibility. It's actually quite nice to be driving in cooler conditions too.

"As always there are still some tweaks we can make to improve the car, but overall I'm feeling good."
