what an awesome video! I'm sure eventually we won't age at all any more, as dying is just something that's necessary for evolution, but for now yes less protein seems to slow it down doesn't it. I had been thinking being mixed race would help, with hybrid vigour, but it seems not, according to https://jech.bmj.com/content/70/12/1251. Of course English is fairly mongrel anyway geneticallyPlatinumZealot wrote: ↑Sat Dec 28, 2019 4:54 pmOver the years Lewis has maintained a much more youthful look than drivers in his age group and I am not certain, but I suppose this youthfulness extends into his neuro-muscular system as well. If this is indeed the case he should be able to peak into a much older age than the best drivers from the past. He has also adopted a Vegan diet and there is some scientific evidence that a Vegan diet extends one's youth somewhat. In fact I have a feeling this is what Hamilton is deliberately doing!

F1-metrics blog estimates the "cliff" age at about 41 years old. For Lewis it might be at least 2 to 5 years more before that point where he starts getting regular mid-race brain fades like Schumi was getting and Schumi was 42 i think. I won't be surprised to see bright springy Lewis with a slightly wrinkled Max verstappen beside him on the grid!
but for Lewis, it probably won't be like Mansell or Prost with a big car advantage, the cars will all be fairly even by then, after a few years of the same 2021 spec, and massive talents in the new generation as well. Plus he has things to do after F1. But let's see i shall be glued even more if he goes to Ferrari, he certainly has enough years left to give that a go if he wants
