"I'm really happy. We've moved forwards. Coming into the weekend, I didn't know where we would stand so to come out fourth and fifth is really great points for the team," Hamilton said after finishing fourth at the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix.
"Huge thank you to everyone back at the factory for bringing those upgrades. We kept it in one piece, we brought it home, we beat the Ferraris and we really got some great points as a team.
"Next week Barcelona is the best test circuit for us, so it was really difficult here to really know. The car felt very stiff, there are lots of bumps, it's tricky," he continued.
"I definitely noticed one particular part of the car that was better but I don't know how that will be next week. I'm sure the whole thing will be a much better package next week."
