Gran Turismo Sport – Lewis Hamilton at Monaco World Finals | PS4


So ladies and gentlemen, please give it your all for
six-time Formula One world champion… …Lewis Hamilton! [APPLAUSE] Thank you. It’s incredible
to see this thing thing evolve. And I was just talking backstage about
how I play this game all winter. And this is kind of what I practiced honestly. Me and my friends, I have two setup at home So we usually ski during the day and then in the evening
I have competitions between my brother. I’ve been online actually playing last Christmas. And no one knows it’s me. I noticed there was a couple of
different people using parts of my name. So there was “Ham” something and… This guy kept crashing into me and taking me out and I was like, if only he knew
he was racing against me. Hi, I’m from Brazil, and it’s an honor to be here. being able to, you know, answer some questions. No. Ask some questions. I’m sorry. You’re good. You’re good. But anyway. When you are driving,
what do you prioritize during the driving as like track limits or the breaking? What do you keep in mind to
put together a good lap? So over the years as I’ve driven more and more,
it’s become more and more — I’ve really dug further and further into and deeper
into the technical side of it. So in terms of driving style . So each year I have to adjust my driving
style due to the tires that we have. Sometimes each year you have an over-steering car. Some years you have an under-steering car. But on the lap you’re looking at braking
points are very, very key. That’s where a lot of the time from the brake to the apex is where the majority of the time is made. Of course, you want to use the
maximum width of the track. Keeping the minimum speed up is always
most often quite key in some places. But different driving styles
you have to apply to different corners. So that’s really trying to figure out
what those are and let it flow. So through practice, I’m usually practicing… …pushing more or pushing less,
lifting up the middle speed. Move the brake balance around quite a bit. Engine braking, those kinds of things. So it’s not always the easiest thing to plan for
because the car moves in different ways each time. I would like to ask you since you are
a six-time Formula One world champion. Like, what in your opinion is the perfect driver? Well, honestly, I don’t think there is a perfect driver. And at the end of the day
none of us are perfect. You have to believe that you’re
just great the way we are. But you’re constantly working to improve in all areas. For me I think there’s drivers that I’ve grown up with that have been very quick at practice, but weren’t particularly great in a race. There’s drivers you see even today that crash
a lot in the races, make a lot of mistakes. But they’ve actually got good pace over
a single lap if they could keep it together. There are some drivers which are good on the braking, and there are some guys
that are better at saving their tires Yeah, I think it’s… Of course you want to be an all-round, but I’m always working on being the all-round
greatest I can be or greatest driver. And so that’s a large group of things. When you’re a Formula One driver,
that’s a lot of the communication with the team. I’m always searching for perfection.
I’m always trying to improve. And for me over the years, I’ve learnt different styles of driving. As as I said, each corner is different and you have to grab onto these different
techniques that you’re using. It’s not just one technique through the whole lap. So I think practice really makes perfect. I think the exercise of trying too much and
trying too little is a whole part of the process. You generally want to be making mistakes because those are the ones you’re gonna learn from. Arigato. I just want to say congratulations
on everyone getting here. You know, this is awesome to see you-all here and I’m looking forward
to seeing some of you race. I wish you-all good luck.
