Re: Hamilton: Simulator no better than PlayStation

So, this is circuit racing. You go around the same track (in circles, as our wives constantly tell us). Once you're in the car and done it 3 or 4 times, there is nothing new again. Why do you need a simulator to tell you anything more? Last weekend I went pro-Karting, the first time in 10 years. Nev...

Re: Nico has accepted 2nd already against Hamilton...

It's proven impossible for Rosberg to "forget Lewis" and win without Hamilton being on the back foot (self inflicted or not): . . . Spain (Ham bad start). In some ways he's the best F1 wingman in history. Nico wins pretty reliably when Hamilton has a bad weekend. So when Rosberg drives better than ...

He says he still had brakes but the pedal went down.

So he didn't lose brakes, just the feel.

He also says he could have held off Kimi.
