Hamilton Enjoying New Challenge


Hamilton has revealed the new cars are presenting a harder challenge than he predicted but is enjoying it even more because of it…..


Lewis Hamilton has been slowly getting used to the 2017 spec of cars, not that is has stopped him taking 2 first places and a string on the podium.


However, Lewis being Lewis he has taken on the new challenge and seems to be enjoying the difficulty and speed of the new beasts.

“I quite like that the car is difficult to drive,”


“It’s like you watch people get on the bull, jump on the bull and try to tame the bull, try to tame a horse. It’s the same kind of feeling you get in this car, when it’s not easy, when it’s a challenge.” Lewis Continued.


“There are cars I’ve had in the past which have been beautiful to drive and very easy, a lot easier to set up. I like that this is a challenge, it really puts myself and my engineers on the edge.”


“And it really makes us have to be a lot more meticulous with the decisions we make, the direction in which we go, and how I also have to work a lot harder to balance the car. You saw obviously over the radio in the last race. That’s the fight of it.”


“Over the year the car will continue [to improve], as we understand it more and more, understand the tires and understand the tools that we have, we’ll refine them and the car will get easier to drive for sure.”
