Lewis Hamilton doesn't like Formula 1 simulators

By Faiming_low on 19 Jun 2016 in Formula 1

Attached Image Many Formula 1 drivers spend lots of time in the simulator to learn the track but Lewis Hamilton reckons its a waste of time, according to Autosport. With the new Baku street circuit race just over last weekend, both Lewis as well as his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg had to take to the virtual realm to learn the track before it was open for practice.

Lewis was quoted saying that he doesn't drive the simulator much because 'it isn't at its best at the moment' and admitted that he only drove eight laps in the simulator. He feels that he spent too much time doing sims when he was at McLaren and went on to say that the difference between driving a simulator and the real thing is substantial as 'you don't feel the speed nor the physicality of it'.

In the article, Lewis also doesn't believe in walking the circuit, another common practice among most Formula 1 teams before they go out for their practices. He claims that it does not work for him and have not walked a track since 2010.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Given his recent performance at Baku, it looks like he could've used the extra sim time. You're great Lewis, but you're not Ayrton.
