Lewis Hamilton has compared himself to Manny Pacquiao - but intends to see his own attacking style lead to victory at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.

The reigning world champion travelled to Las Vegas last weeken but it was the defeated Filipino with whom Hamilton drew similarities as he looks to go all out for a fourth win of the season in Barcelona.

“When I was watching the fight, I felt Pacquiao won,” Hamilton said.

“He was the attacking one. I felt I had more similarities with him, watching his style, I was thinking he’s the attacking guy, he’s out there, he’s hungry. He wants it more than anything.

Hamilton won last time out in Bahrain and will drive an updated Mercedes at the Circuit de Catalunya.
