    He threw Thrustmaster a bone too, haha. Also, Lewis' expression was priceless when Kaz kept soeaking Japanese to him.​

    I'm under the impression that Kaz can speak perfect English but for some reason doesn't want to when on screen. Anyway, I enjoyed that vid.

    that's really sweet, the quality and the fact we get to see so much of the laps... a vast improvment on what we got from Vettel bombing around in the Redbull X

    Apparently a lot of Japanese people are like that, can speak and understand English just fine but just won't speak it.
    But Lewis face is priceless when he's just nodding away saying yeah while Kaz speaks to him lol.

    Interesting that he changed to a completely different set of shoes during the video. Two show sponsors to please or the first pair somehow less comfortable to 'drive' with?

    I like the fact that it is part 1. They should make him drive a fake track next.

    I really liked that video. So awesome hearing him talk all driving stuff. Got a few tips there definitely.

    Amazing to see a 4 time World champion drive an exact same car over the exact same track which you also did and teaching you. Amazing.

    Is a 1:56.8xx a serious time compared to what the aliens are doing?

    It’s well outta my league but just curious how it sits.

    He's paid to do that, of course he's going to praise/showcase Sony, GT, Puma, Thrustmaster and so on. They even took the time to fill the car selection screen only with Mercedes cars, talking about details.
    We see those kind of commercials disguised as "normal" entertainment videos everywhere nowadays, at least this one wasn't as fake and lame as some of them, in my opinion. For example, despite having driven the Nurburgring GP for hundreds of laps in different racing games over the years, I never saw that hairpin before the Schumacher S as a double apex. That was quite interesting.

    Also, it was also quite funny to read in the subtitles how impressed was Kazunori by Hamilton's driving. Maybe it was just a matter of watered-down translations to keep things simple, but... this one for example

    Almost like he was thinking "this guy is quite good with a wheel on his hands, I wasn't expecting that!"

    Depends, aliens have probably spent 10 hours straight finding the tracks penalty limits and grip levels.
    Lewis was doing this on a pre release I guess.

    I'm going to have to forget he said 'I usually use this view'.

    Of course we don't know exactly what settings he was using on his laps, but this was my result using default (non-BoP) power and weight on the racing hard tires. Regardless of how legitimate his time, or my time, is, the reference laps videos from Lewis are still a great tool for less experienced players and his personality is a great addition to the game.

    To be fair I don’t think this was done that long ago, he posted on his insta this week about his new GTSPORT setup and it had the same wheel, could have been a week or so ago, tho maybe not :D

    I did a 1:57.4 in the circuit experience lap on the sticks (TC1) with 20 mins practice.

    Have yet to try it in TT mode with some personally suited suspension tuning and gear ratios.

    You should get that info to TOTO lol

    I'm pretty sure this was pre release, I feel like I've seen bits of that video months ago.

    Looking forward to getting home tonight and watching these... and I'm not even a LH "fan".
    I think it's awesome he's spending time with the game.
    I would never expect him to beat the aliens. Big difference between the real world and a game/gear built to be affordable to the masses... much more I doubt he is going to invest the time the aliens do... saw one guy note he uses his wheel on average 10hrs a day... Zooinks!

    It's interesting to see how light he is on the brakes. I think he's naturally driving as if ABS is off, since ABS isn't allowed in F1 racing.

    For who's wondering when it's (supposedly) been filmed:
