As Pedro de la Rosa said for the spanish TV, ignore the images and just hear Lewis engine for the qualifying lap, then compare with Max. Max has wheel spinning constantly, what is obvious watching his constant counterwheels, while Lewis has almost zero wheel spin. That´s NOT the car as all cars are grip limited for almost the whole lap, that´s Hamilton being smooth with the throttle, and being smooth in slippery conditions is key
Ever heard of engine mapping?
Yes. But, do you think that´s some kind of magic wich only applies for Hamilton? #-o

Thought I'd try another one, this time rain-impacted races. I'm certain I've missed some so please add any you are aware of (e.g. I'm sure Vettel must've won at least one during his championship years).

2007 - Great Britain (KR), Japan (LH)
2008 - Monaco (LH), Great Britain (LH), Belgium (LH)
2009 - Malaysia (JB), China (SV)
2010 - Belgian (LH), Korea(FA)
2011 - Canada (JB), Germany (LH), Hungary (JB)
2012 - Malaysia (FA), Great Britain (MW), Brazil (JB)
2013 - Malaysia (SV)
2014 - Hungary (DR), Japan (LH)
2015 - Great Britain (LH), United States (LH)
2016 - Monaco (LH), Great Britain (LH), Brazil (LH)
2017 - China (LH), Singapore (LH)
2018 - Germany (LH)
2019 - Germany (MV)
Worth remembering that in 2011 Canada, Button put Hamilton in the wall on the pit straight in an attempt to prevent him over taking on the inside of T1. Button most likely wouldn't have won that one otherwise.
Don’t forget “pit start to third” for the 2014 HUG GP.

Impressive list, especially from 2014 onwards. During this period he won around 50% of all the races and 80% of wet ones with 90% podiums and 100% points.
& dont forget 2012 Brazil GP Lewis was leading when Hulk took him out

Good point, forgot that one.
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"
