In his analysis of Lewis Hamilton's win in Portugal, Peter Windsor explains why Lewis was able to extract more from his Pirelli medium tyres than his Mercedes team-mate, Valtteri Bottas - and why this characteristic has been an intrinsic part of his record-breaking career. The first of Peter's two-part Portuguese GP review.

  • PW. Not sure I agree with your specific descriptions about "how Lewis does it". I like to think of it as that Lewis takes in all the variables (e.g. car/weather/weight, etc. ) and figures out how to make the best of it all (how to work the sets of tires for the best outcome of the entire race.).

  • Yes, what he’s achieved is great, but, he’s done it in the best car, best etc, but, best of all time?, what about John Surtees?, a World Champion on two wheels and four, isn’t that amazing, never been never likely to be equalled, or how about Nigel Mansell, he has won two World titles driving different four wheel disciplines for two different teams, I basically think you can’t compare drivers through the past decades, they were all the best in there day, if Lewis is that special, that little bit better, got that little extra, then in that theory, he should be able to put a back of the grid car in the top ten on the grid.

  • I don't like when people say it's because of his natural ability, as if they don't put a lot more hours than driving, into learning how to get the most out of their tyres. He was known as a tyre killer earlier in his career. People forget

  • Lewis is absolutelly fantastic. How ever F1 is suffering. Im the biggest F1 fan I ever met, and even for me it's a little bit boring to watch F1 2016->. Fia stewards decisions to put safety car for 15 seconds at Imola....just to slow down Valtteri is just super sad. Lewis would have anyway won that race. Toto told before this season even started how nice it would have 7th title for Lewis...come on guys! Yeah sure...theres a chance that Valtteri can win...in theory. So 2020 was there, count together Totos comments and pre-season tests-2020->boring. What could be medicine...well-I have 10000 scenarios. I think best would be steel brakes->longer braking periods, less aero, similar floor + rear and front wings, no drs, 2 or 3 different weight distribution choises which you need to tell before season starts and stick with it whole season, same tyre widths as 2020 but chance to use mixed tyre setup 30% of the races. 2 day race wk:ends could also work better. Also 2-3 non championship races on a year for test drivers only=income for teams possibly and some other winner than Lewis. FIA: I would love to work with these things in a future ;)

  • It's interesting about Lewis and the tire management as I always remember when he was team mates with Jenson and Jenson was relying on tires to compete while Lewis was occasionally overdriving. Lewis did have weaknesses, as bit like Max now. He has methodically removed every one.

All you need to do is find any article that relates to Hamilton, sometimes it doesn't even need to be him but comments like your flow like an unending stream of bitterness and resentment. Unfortunately this trend is the same for any F1 web site/INworlds channel that invites reader/viewer comments in recent times as he has got ever closer to Schumacher's records... I cannot see how you've not come across them, they are legion.

  • Doubtless the car. He is a competitive driver of that there is no doubt. When F1 was actually competitive e.g. 2010-2012, Hamilton could not win the title. In those seasons we had : 2010 we had 5 different winners, Ferrari 5 wins, Mclaren 5 wins RBR 9 wins 2011 we had 5 different winners Mclaren 6 wins RBR 12 Ferrari 1 2012 we had 8 different winner MAclaren 7 wins RBR 7 Ferrari 3 Lotus 1 Those days an average qualifying performance could leave a top driver in 7th or 8th with all to do. Now a bad qualifying for a Mercedes means 2nd on the grid and at worst 2nd in the race. favored by Mercedes

  • Lewis Hamilton is only winning because he's in the best car apparently, well according to those jealous idiots like Jackie Stewart and others. I remember him and brundle saying Lewis won't succeed when he joined F1 😔. Can you remember 🎶?? Lewis would compete with anyone of the F1 drivers of the past and win . He's that pedigree. Just saw a video saying Michael CHEATING Schumacher would have had 100 wins BLA BLA BLA. WELL LEWIS would have had many more race wins too and championship if his team or car didn't let him down over the years. People like jackie Stewart is the part of rhe problem in this world. They are so insecure so they have to hold back the stronger DNA 💪 in order for them to look good and create a lifestyle behind it. Jackie hasn't achieved shite imho. Im glad this video explains how Lewis Hamilton approaches and drives in the race. Few years ago the media try hitting his confidence by saying he's hard on his tyres when he was actually 1 of the best. Now the million dollar question is why are they trying to tarnish King GOAT Lewis Hamilton Achievements?? Why ?? Whats really at play here 🤔?? Smfh

I, like you, I see the injustice we face but my point was in regards to the "💪DNA" comments and similar I have enough of the other side seeking to make us different without us then using the same decisive rhetoric as those calling Lewis use. This it what weakens the valid points that you make elsewhere in your post

    • @Robert Anderson im sure non whites and all other ethics groups may have that financial. But generally especially in those early days we are speaking of Lewis journey and what he faced. Rich parents telling him to quit he won't make it to F1. Please stay on topic. He's made it to F1 critics like jackie stewart n martin brundle start using their media position of power to slate Lewis saying he won't be good in f1 , he's bad with tyre management all sorts of rubbish which Lewis actually proven to be one of the best at tyre management n mature as a driver. Look how they are boosting max Vasterpen like he's the best thing since slice bread 🍞 and he's still very reckless . He's been in F1 now for many years. I see your attempts to play down the Racism Lewis faces . This is the propblem in Uk and globally. My GF didn't believe Racism exist until her friends starts sharing their work experience with her. Ie this Asian guy saw her and asked if she was the janitor . Well we know how they worship white people. When infact she is a cooperate lawyer for a bank. This is what society is really like . And everyone pretends it doesn't exist. My advice to Lewis is do not even acknowledge these individuals. They jave to keep calling his name yo be relevant. Its just jealousy they were average at Best including. jackie stewart is full of envy. I think Lewis would have compete with anyone of that ear and be as competent n competitive. Im impress with Frangio stats .

    • Woah as a black man you're doing a disservice to your arguement here. Jackie Stewart is in my top 3 F1 drivers (Lewis and Jim Clark being the others) While I was upset by his seeming backhanded acknowledgement of Lewis' achievement and also through the years a willingness to think the worst of Lewis; I remember him accusing Lewis of brake testing Vettel in Baku (when Vettel then drove into him deliberately). hell even Vettel later acknowledged that he was wrong to also make the same accusation) That doesn't erase the greatest legacy of any driver in the sport (that being number of drivers who live to retire from it now). Similarly in turn I believe Lewis (and others) will leave an equal legacy; a greater number of non white individuals being afforded the opportunity to try to get into motor racing. So please dial back on the disrepect you are doing no favours to the fight to address social injustice.

  • im sorry but for me a lot of this is just a little bit over the top although i do rate lewis as one of the greats there is some important factors that dont seem to get mentioned enough. For instance how many of the current world champions walked straight into the sport in a race winning car, Senna, Schumi, Vettel, Alonso, Raikkonen all started at cars in the mid pack or the back where as Lewis started straight away in a race winning machine. For me ranking drivers ability is not so straight forward so i like to look at what these drivers did when not in the best cars and how much they were able to achieve. Lewis now gets mentioned as the GOAT but i dont agree for this simple reason between 2009 to 2013 he never finished in the Top 3 of the championship once despite having the 2nd best car in 2010,2011 and statistically Mclaren was quicker than the RBR in 2012 which tells me there is chinks in his armor for me a driver that is G.O.A.T material will constantly be knocking on the door as much as the machine will allow them too kind of like what verstappen is doing now if his car isnt fast enough to win he just makes sure he gets as close as he can like Alonso who battled for the Title in 2010 and 2012 despite having a car that was slower than RBR and Mclaren schumi battled for loads of championships while not having the fastest car 95, 97, 98,99 Hamilton has never really done that so i think Hamilton is in the Top5 greats for sure but if im honest it is the classic case of being in the right place at the right time just think if he never made the move to mercedes how many championships do you think he would have now? #not a hater i just feel like context is needed sometimes.

    • @oioi909 that's fair enough but almost every world champion has questionable moments in their careers. For example when McLaren got caught with the Ferrari blueprints 07 they got a 100million euro fine but the cars didn't change much for 08 so McLaren were able to benefit from secret knowledge of the Ferrari which is why max Mosley wanted McLaren banned for two seasons but the FIA would have lost millions in viewership so they got a fine instead and Hamilton won a championship on the back of that. Clearly Lewis and Fernando knew about the blueprints because Fernando was using it to blackmail McLaren. Alonso faced Lewis in a team that was all British and was definitely in his corner since he was there from 8years old. In 2010,2011,2012 McLaren were quite close in performance with McLaren being a slightly better car but it's fair to say Alonso out performed Lewis in that period so I've always thought there is a question to be asked. Lewis only found this level of consistency in 2014 when he only really had to be his team Alonso had this level while trying to fight Vettel, webber,button,hamilton raikkonen and his teammate

    • @Kryptic TMG You make very reasonable and informed points. Perhaps you are right. Of course, opinions do differ, and it is always interesting to hear those opinions when they are well informed. I've been watching since 1976, and saw Senna in his F3 days I think, I was very very young at the time. Jimmy Clark is my favourite driver because his speed came not at the expense of being hard on the equipment. A driver of extreme sensitivity and mechanical sympathy. An Artist, no less, who was able to win in anything, he really was. I believe Hamilton has mastered all aspects and is truly the most complete driver in the field. My issue with Schumacher will always be to do with his cheating. Driving deliberately into another driver, as with Damon Hill, for whatever reason is a huge no no for me. And Villeneuve jr, I cannot remember maybe 1997 and all his points docked for the season. This to me is a disgrace. Senna was the same. I think these drivers were brilliant but unhinged. In 1988 when he said he was put on the dirty side of the grid and said he would take Prost out, I lost all respect. I'm sorry this attitude is completely unacceptable, and for myself overshadows the great achievements of these rare talents. I said to my friends in 1988 that he is for sure going to die in the car because he has no respect for the limit. I thought the same with Villeneuve Sr. Brilliant drivers. I will never forget Senna's interview with Jackie Stewart. People like this, no matter their brilliance can never be on the level of Jimmy Clark, and I believe Hamilton. The ethics make a huge difference for me. To be the greatest it is more than pure brilliance, it is more than statistics, one has embody the values of the sport, to show sportsmanship, to accept when one has been bested on the day with grace.

      oioi909oioi90929 दिन पहले
    • @oioi909 I guess opinions differ for me, i see Lewis as the 3rd best out of the drivers i had the pleasure to watch. Realistically Alonso's 2005 championship win wasnt even a battle as schumi's ferrari had no chance as the FIA nurfed the rules to stop ferrari and bridgestone. Lewis has always done well against his teammates but not as crushing as what you might think he and Alonso were tide on points, over the 3 seasons he and button were teammates it was 2-1 to Lewis but actually Button over that 3 year period at Mclaren actually out scored Lewis in Total. Yes i agree guys like Vettel have been beaten by teammates but he has faced some of the sports young hungry guys who in a good car would be world champion candidates. I think Lewis would have a lot less individual success if he had to race Ricciardo or charless Leclerc every week, Faster teammates create greater pressure which is why all the season's where Hamilton had much more competitive teammates thats where he made more errors. You cant question lewis's greatness but ppl act like the car isnt the deciding factor swap any of the other top drivers into that merc and put lewis at RBR he would be getting destroyed just like how the other drivers are now because i have already seen it happen B4 in 09,10,11,12,13 As ive stated before the only drivers who have competed for titles with inferior equipment Senna, schumi, Alonso. Schumi got to 91 wins faster with less races per season and less competitive cars so for me he will always be No1.

      Kryptic TMGKryptic TMG29 दिन पहले
    • I agree to a point. The fact that he's had cars capable of winning is definitely a bonus in his favour. But, when he got the drive in 2007 he was up against a chap who had beaten Schumacher..twice. So, a pretty special guy. I think any reasonable individual would agree that he did himself credit in 2007, to say the least. Alonso was, and is a special talent. To hold him to account in his rookie season can only mean one thing. He is not an ordinary talent either, but an extraordinary one. So yeah right place right time etc..but in order to stay at the top and keep his seat in a competitive car he needed to consistently beat his teammates. I cannot honestly say that over a few seasons that any driver has got the better of Hamilton. Vettel was crushed by Ricciardo in his last RB season. The wins poles and titles, every one of them, is worked for and richly deserved. No one is going to give it to you in racing. He has also been a credit to the nation of his birth. However, on a personal level I can't help but feel that if it were Button, a driver who I admire and respect greatly, who were this successful he would be criticised far less and celebrated by the British much more. I believe that he is a sublime talent above both Senna and Schumacher but equal to Jimmy Clark and Fangio.

  • Hey Peter, one of my sons asked me that same question about Louis a couple years ago. “Dad why is Louis so good with that car.” This is how I explained it. Louis is an excellent communicator. He can talk to anyone anywhere, something not all drivers or athletes for that matter can do. Great communication starts with the ability to listen with awareness of what going on around you. So when people see his life style with different women and associating with people not from the industry he is learning how to adjust everything about himself to fit the circumstances. That being said, driving is much like being in a relationship. Racing is like being in a relationship with a crazy person. If you give the wrong input things can go bad quickly. When you muscle the car via the controls your luck wears thin you and your tires pay the price. Grip the wheel too tight and it’s like chocking the life out of your relationship. However, when your input is simply a pre planned suggestion and not a last second demand you are more apt to get what you need to be successful. I guarantee you that Louis holds the wheel loosely and gives pre planned suggestions rather than demands before cornering to keep the car flat. You might ask, do I race? No but I’ve have had a crazy Ex or two 😂 I have used that analogy to teach many Police Officers to enforcement ride.

  • 71 wins at Mercedes with a totally dominant car. Arton Senna 12 GPs per season Hamilton 22. Easy - he is a good driver but not necessarily the best. Many of the greats raced against each other in their primes - there is no similar competition. A lot of great has beens and some coming up. Mind you last year without Hamilton Bottas would still have won for Mercedes.

  • Actually, in his early years Hamilton had a tendency to overuse the tires. Then Pirelli came and he had to learn to nurse the tires and he's become pretty good at it. Nowadays, he very much starts the race in tire-saving mode and switches to attack mode after some ten laps. Once again it was more than enough to completely overwhelm Bottas, who is usually pretty hard on the tires. The only races Bottas can win are races in which the tires do not degrade a lot. I'm puzzled Bottas still hasn't figured out how to nurse his tires. He still pushes way too hard in the early laps of the race. About the tire strategy: even though Horner claimed that in hindsight they should have started on the medium tire, I don't think that would have helped Red Bull. They were already struggling massively in the opening laps on the softs, and starting on the mediums would only have made it worse. I don't think the soft-medium strategy was much worse than the medium-hard tire strategy adopted by Mercedes and Leclerc. The medium tire was by far the best tire in the race.

  • no doubt lewis has been one of the best drivers on the grid the last 10 to 15 years. but the TRUTH is.... luis has won that many races because he has had limited competition.... basically his team mate. the sad state of F1. the red bull domination period..... followed by the mecedes domination period.

  • 1. He always has the fastest car on the track. 2. His team mates were always ordered to let him overtake/win 3. He was groomed to be champion. I have so much more respect for Schumacher and Senna because they did it in sub-par cars also.

  • He won 92 gp's because he is in the best car on the grid for the last 6 years, in an era with 20+ races over a year and with a weak teammate. Of rosberg was still around he wouldn't hit that number this soon or if the CEO of f1 would try to stop Mercedes as Bernie did with Ferrari at the start of 2000's

Now Lewis Hamilton's younger competitors will all master this secret of Formula One driving before the next Grand Prix, and Lewis will finish in last place every race from now on. Thanks a lot Peter.

  • Hamilton is in the best car. He gets the best car by being the best driver. And the car gets to be the best by having the best driver in the driving seat - he drives the development. They have to listen to their best driver, or not win so often. And Bottas's style is not quite as suited to the design, and it doesn't drive the design either. Hamilton's lifestyle and demeanour are not insignificant, his preparation is his whole life, and when he gets to the track, he is confident there is not much left to do other than to race.

  • I always thought Hamilton was good at the beginning of his F1 career although other people weren't so sure. I then remember watching him win in the wet at Silverstone by 1 minute 10 seconds while many of the other great drivers were pirouetting round the circuit. It changed how a lot of people viewed him. One more thing, I had the privilege to work for Louis Klemantaski a great motor racing photographer who triggered my interest in the sport, I asked him what he thought was the most important thing about motor racing and without hesitation he said tyres. I think you are absolutely right Peter, tyre care. My brother and I enjoy your broadcasts very much thanks.

It doesn’t mean anything to me. He’s in a car which should win every race basically” ,he only has a couple of drivers to beat” job done. 20 . or not, I lost all respect for him. Right there .To say that , was pure crap. In my opinion , Sorry how about, Yeah this is great for are sport. This is what it’s about. For me Lewis Hamilton is pure skill and top humility brilliant driver and safe. Stunning description well said. Because of this video I can appreciate what these cars do and how the driver controls more now...

  • I don't buy the, you have to be born with it argument. Circumstances of his childhood in karting would have contributed. Do you have to have the potential? Sure, but credit Lewis for developing and maximizing it. Many seemingly effortless "talents" are really skills with thousands of hours(often hidden) behind them.

  • Spot on Peter!! Lewis has been cheating using Traction Control, located on the bottom of his right foot...🤠

  • When comparing with most other modern greats, I think Lews loses out on a few stats: how many times did he swear and use offensive language at other fellow drivers, how many times he has shown physical aggression against other fellow drivers - let alone attempt to throw a punch, how many times did he deliberately bump in to other fellow drivers in the race, how many times did he take out or attempt to take out other drivers in the race...... I think Lewis loses out heavily. Boooooo !!!!

  • To deny Lewis his achievements is to be a very sore looser... I do not like Lewis style personally but I respect him as probably one of the best F1 driver and ATM the best pilot, F1 has given us regarding his titles and victories. Unfortunately I am also sure there are a lot of people on the F1 world sphere who are probably racist by nature and will always try to diminish his achievements because of it even if they claim the contrary. I do not like monopolies in a sport, I never bought into Shumi's long streak of victories, I found it so boring that I stopped to watch F1 for years until recently with this new golden generation of funny and enjoyable new pilots (Pierre, Georges, Charles, Lando, Alex, etc... ) ... and I really hope, other teams will level the field to give us more interesting future seasons...

  • Driving the best car by far for 7 years in a row doesnt hurt either. Hes is probably the best of the Tire endurance era drivers but there is nothing to suggest he would have thrived to the same extent during any other era. The cars are just 2 different from one era to the next . His one championship not in this era was a fortuitous one with the Singapore crash gate race having a huge impact on that championship. Had the race run normal Masa would not have had to make that fateful pitstip and the championship would have been his not Hamiltons but that is the luck of the draw.

    • I disagree. After every race he looks at mistakes, what could have been done better. He is relentless. His driving has evolved immensely since 2007 to reflect changes in car and tyre specification. He has identified which particular skill set is required to extract the maximum, and mastered it. As time has progressed his arsenal, or toolbox of skills simply grows. He is constantly moving toward completeness as a driver. I suspect strongly that he would have been very successful in any era of GP racing. Very similar indeed to Jimmy Clark.

  • How Lewis drives is relative to what he drives and relative to who he drives against, he drives the best car and is atleast better than his team mate which in turn makes him nearly unstoppable. Everyone who has that technical advantage has a much greater chance of success . Pretty sure if Daniel Ricardo for example was by chance in Lewis seat for these dominant years he would be the one looking at a bucket full of championships .
