That's why Hamilton's motivation is still so high

Lewis Hamilton took another pole position yesterday, the 98th in his career. Bottas was unable to beat his teammate again.

How can Lewis Hamilton be faster and better? That is a question often asked in the media. Peter Windsor, a Formula 1 journalist, also wondered this. Yesterday he saw a disappointed Bottas who himself did not know how it was possible that he was defeated again. But Windsor thinks he knows why.

"You don't see that in the figures"

"Sorry Valtteri, but the difference between you and Lewis riding on a set of new soft tyres is all about how you handle the dynamic weight. You could see that very well in turns 9 and 10. That's a part of the track you have to have a lot of feeling for. If you do it well there, you do it well everywhere. That all contributes to a good lap time. You don't see that in the numbers and telemetry, but that's what Lewis Hamilton masters right down to the tips of his fingers," he explains in a video on YouTube.

"You could tell from his face after qualifying how much he enjoyed it. Just one perfect lap on a new set of tyres. For Lewis, that's what life has always been about. And I think that's why his motivation is still so high. For him it's all about getting out of bed in the morning, driving a Formula 1 car over a track as fast as he can and preferably while he's under a lot of pressure," Windsor concludes.
