"Nico needed 1,000 laps, Lewis was there in two"

Some interesting quotes from Mercedes’ chief strategist, James Vowles:

From https://www.planetf1.com/news/nico-r...hamilton-laps/

“Looking through the data, if you give Nico a thousand laps, he slowly iterates towards an incredible performance level. If you give Lewis two, he’s there, if that makes any sense,” said Vowles during the Beyond The Grid podcast.

“Where Nico was excellent was if you give him time in the car to see what his team-mate’s doing, he’s incredible what he achieves. That’s where he was good – he could continuously adapt and evolve if he had sufficient amounts of time under his belt."


My 2 cents: In 2016, the year Rosberg "beat" Hamilton, Hamilton had more wins and more podiums, but one additional retirement. That was the difference in the championship.
