However, Hamilton, who has replaced Schumacher at Mercedes, believes that it will be hard for his team to repeat their triumph of last year.
"Mercedes were in a unique situation at the track last year and got everything right," said Hamilton.
"The tyres are different this year so you have to anticipate that it's going to be a little bit different there for us.
"Walking off into the distance is probably not going to be the case. If the car works well there and we get a similar result it'll be amazing."
Hamilton finished fifth in the season opener at Melbourne before racing to a third-placed conclusion in Malaysia.
