Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton is confident that his struggles in practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix will not have a massive effect on his race chances.

The reigning world champion failed to set a time in session one due to engine problems, which were fixed in time for him to feature in the later run, where he set the fastest time.

And Hamilton, who opened the new campaign with a convincing victory in Australia, was not too concerned by his problems.

He told Sky Sport News: "Fortunately I got a few laps of a longer run at the end, but in terms of my set-up I've not made any changes, so I've just driven what I have.

"It's quite a bit off with where I probably need it. I think I've got some improvements I can make with the balance and the settings, they were all kind of brought from the last race. I'm sure we'll tweak it and improve it a little bit."

Hamilton can be backed at 1.53 to win the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday and is 1.57 to be the fastest qualifier, with Mercedes 1.02 to be provide the winning car.

Meanwhile, Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, who was fastest in the first practice session at Sepang, felt that he had enjoyed a solid day, but he was also impressed by the pace shown by Ferrari.

He added: "I am fine in the car and the pace is good. It seems that again Ferrari is pretty close, so we need to keep an eye on them."
