Here is the perfect lap (even if you are not a Hamilton fan)

Ever wondered what the perfect lap looks like?

This lap is stunning.

Enjoy this raw, no commentary, on-board video.

Then watch it again.

Honestly, this is as good as racecar driving gets:

* It might make you watch this on YouTube itself. Worth it.

6 reasons why:

  1. He could not have braked later. Trailing the speed perfectly into each corner.
  2. He hits every apex.
  3. His steering is super smooth. One gradual turn motion. No sawing at the wheel.
  4. He could not have got on the power any earlier. Maximising all the available acceleration but with no wheel spin.
  5. The proximity of the barriers massively increases the risk of this approach.
  6. He left no margin anywhere, even at the end when he was already over 1 second up.

It is a master class.

A once in a life time lap.

If you are ever wondering what the perfect lap looks like, have another watch of this.


That was intense. For something more light hearted (but equally impressive in its own way) how about this bit of driving inspiration – a Formula car, at the Nordschleife, in the SNOW 😎 Enjoy.
