So now we’d like to have you drive. The car is the Mercedes AMG GT GT3 car, and this is the car. The ABS is now on, and TCS is off. Ok then, would you like to adjust your seating position?
Are you ok? – Good.
– Ok. So Lewis is driving GT Sport. This is his first experience of GT Sport,
his very first lap. Only on corner in and he’s already
starting to grasp the limits of the car. The rear end just slid out, but he caught it right away,
even though it’s his first time on GT Sport. Just let off the throttle for a bit. Wow incredible. Getting a two minute lap
on your fourth lap is incredible. It makes me happy to hear that. I think you drove very clean lines, but the part where you go wide and come back in, in an F1 machine you can go all the way out; but because this car is heavier
you might not be able to go that wide. I’m glad to hear that. Really it’s incredible that
you can get right up to the apex… it’s the obvious action but still. He said he likes this position. So this is Lewis driving on day two. Yesterday he recorded his best lap but we failed to capture the replay
so we’re having him drive again. Yes already fast from the beginning
compared to yesterday. Aggressive but very careful and thorough.
His movements are very careful and thorough. Yes but yesterday you got a 57. How he turns at the exact moment
where you need to turn the steering, and how smoothly he returns the steering
and starts opening the throttle, this is something to pay attention to. On the entry it looks like Lewis is overspeeding
but he brings the car to the inside. It’s incredible that
he can bring the car to the inside here. How he opens the throttle,
it’s a form of art. Very nice! But really seeing you shaving lap times
in real time like this is a real treat.
