So, outside the vehicle, what if you needed to make your own watch… what might it look like?

LEWIS – I’d love that! I’d love to plan my own watch! I never truly considered it however rose gold is my top pick. Blended in with carbon fiber perhaps. I love the Big Pilot’s watch, I love heavier watches. I like to feel the load on my arm. Doubtlessly it would be a perpetual schedule and a tourbillon. A watch as mechanical as possible.

Below, only for entertainment purposes, what Hamilton’s watch could resemble…

Racing… a few words about hustling and the momentum season

LEWIS – It’s frequently simpler to get up to speed than to remain ahead as far as improvement. A year ago, we had a decent beginning and everybody drew nearer before the finish of the period. What’s more, we’re coming to this season and this remaining parts as before. Really, close. We have 21 races and the vehicles can’t be wonderful on 21 tracks. There will be one that suits one vehicle and the inverse, contingent upon the vehicles’ characteristics.

This year we’ve seen two successes by one driver, at that point two successes by another driver and it will proceed till the year’s end. It will be incredible for observers. Effectively a year ago with Ferrari it was super-close. What’s more, it’s likewise more diversion for me as well. More pressing factor, more competition. It’s more enjoyable to battle against another group. You don’t have the foggiest idea what they have in the engine or what they will do the next end of the week. We need to continually challenge ourselves.

You need to zero in additional on collaboration. At the point when you’re in the group and battling against the other driver, you’re not actually doing collaboration. You’re attempting to take your vehicle ahead. Presently, it’s altogether attempting to push the group in front of the others. Thus, I work all the more intimately with Valtteri (Bottas) than I worked with Nico (Rosberg). It’s a different battle.

What could be the future for you? Another classification – MotoGP, 24h of the le mans?

LEWIS – I’m not actually inspired by different classes. I’ll doubtlessly complete my profession in Formula 1. I appreciate and regard different classifications and the drivers from them, yet it doesn’t do anything for me. I watch Formula 1 and it’s “goodness”, that is what I generally needed to do. I don’t watch Le Mans or Touring Cars. With the exception of MotoGP… That I love! MotoGP, I would do. (MotoGP is what might be compared to F1 for motorbikes).

It wouldn’t be an alternative, notwithstanding, after Formula 1. Expertly in any event. I just need to accomplish something and be the awesome it. I do accept if I had begun before, perhaps at a youthful age. Yet, if you think at this moment, if I go to MotoGP, the experience the drivers have, I would never get up to speed. Also, attempting to get up to speed, probably I’ll break something and get harmed! Furthermore, in my thirties, I’d be an old driver (laughs).


Tomorrow, we will have the second piece of this interview, this time with Valtteri Bottas (Lewis’ partner), with the equivalent questions… And you’ll see that these two people are truly different. Stay tuned!
