    There was that one time where he drove for 65 laps on completely dead tires and they were really gone. And he is one of the most skilled drivers in history at making the best out of even horrible setups. I mean check out his drive at Turkey last week, no one could get both that kind of sheer pace and longevity out of one set of inters. He even used the fact that they were worn down to slicks to his advantage as the track dried out.

    I'm a Hamilton fan but this type of comment from him makes me think Lewis just likes to have his ego massaged. A perfect example was Monaco 2019 when Mercedes put him on the wrong tyre. He moaned all the way through the rest of the race yet won as it's nigh on impossible to overtake. James Vowels: Lewis it's James, incredible drive, well done, there is no ones else who could have done that Remember the year before when Ricciardo on lap 28 with almost 50 laps left, lost 25% power after his MGU-K failed and still won the race!

    Maybe its just that Lewis have a more sensitiv feeling what is going on with his tires then others. Like Schumacher had the „popometer“, not something you can really measure but its like the gut feeling. 🤷🏿‍♂️

  • Andrew Owens
    Andrew Owens21 dag siden

    If it was graining you would see him working the tyre differently, breaking harder and losing lap time for a few laps to clean them up. This is simply "I want my teammate and rival teams to pit for slower tyres" while I drive into the distance.

    "My tyres are dead" can be translated: "Another boring race with Mercedes miles ahead. The only thing worth watching is the mid-fielders slugging it out. No one is watching me (Lewis), and I am a bit of an attention whore. I'll transmit a message of potential interesting developments at the lead. Voila! The cameras are on me, and I get to harvest adoration for my driving skills, which is all I have to show for my shallow little life".

    Worn tyres actually give more grip on corners, is in the exit that they are tend to drift when u give gas. Be careful with the pedal and youll be fine. Plus he has that technology to adjust wheels toe angle to manage temperatures.

    I think he said that it make looks harder and struggle ,at the end win the race by 35 sec fast than VB77, HAM44 will said : gees!! that was hardest race i ever had.I thought my tyres gone,at that moment i thinking of ALI he how boxing how to move ,it help me through this hardest race,tyres just gone no grip,so i keep counting how many lap to finish,and manage the type corner by corner,somehow going fast and faster,keep banging faster lap,totally in other level,I even dont realize i cross the line and finish, i guess because my fans cheer me up.that give me few second fast ,so this win is for my fans,how are you guys, gees you guys just amazing men. just something like that haha. HAM44 really unbeatable unstoppable.he will keep winning if he want to keep racing.

    Lying to whom? It's a team sport, with hundreds working live on strategies at Brackley and the pit. You think they're going to let everyone know on public radio? it's called tactical sport not lying . All world champions did & do this. It's also a psychological tactic used against oppositions and team mates. Jensen button and Rosberg have admitted studying and learning, to use against teammate, Senna and Shuehi aswell. An example like saying their staying long or pitting early or tyres are over heating, is used to throw off rivals, how is it lying. You think teams are going to let the rivals know the truth... If for example you made more profits in your business then rivals. Are you going to let them know your secrets or strategies? I think you're issue is with Lewis and not his race and team methods. His a snake for winning races? He won the last two race by overtaking, tyre management and better strategies. Everyone has rights to their opinions, I just don't see why you think that.
