'This is him' as Windsor says but misses out 18kph top speed advantage.
He can afford to spend time keeping the tyres flat momentarily to last 1/8th lap longer with the lead he's built up, oh please. Next.

If you want to make a snarky comment on a piece its generally worth watching the whole video so as not to make yourself look a bit of a numpty.
PW commented that it was a skill Hamilton had from the very beginning, not just in the Mercedes.

Wakey wakey,if he has done keeping the tyres flat from before then it would slow him down momentarily wouldn't you think.It's just an OPINION of PW's.

Alonso got his two DWC's by oversteering his car into bends, throwing the car into them and powering out for more pace. I've seen many things of how some try to preserve tyres while racing it may work out in the short term but to win races they need to be worn fully.If you preserve you lose pace, fact I'm afraid.

Final Destination film gave me the creeps, you don't know when you don't know where but naturally Max would have had more race wins if Lec car had played by the rules.

With the Imola Merc GP fast approaching it's pointless putting a bet on Hamilton to win as with the odds you'll probably get back less than your stake money

Just on a side note but worth saying is that Seb won his fourth DWC on this day in 2013.

Still...he had the same tyres as most of the others in the top 10 and managed to get into 6th by the end of the lap.
Got to be in the top 5 of all time best F1 first laps in tricky conditions.
