beyond those changes, there were also dynamic gains, particularly with unlocking what Lewis Hamilton had been calling for by making the car rotate more quickly at corner entry
So it seems driver can influence the design of a car
I'd argue that every driver on the grid would be calling for the team to make the car go faster round the corners, but sure, yeah, Hamilton is great.
Both James Allison and Peter Bonnington have gone on record saying that Hamilton’s willingness to push the envelope and ask for things other drivers don’t is one of the things that separates him from the pack.
And when you have a car that’s already the fastest on the grid, and feedback results in what happened with the W11 this year, I can’t see a better example of Hamilton’s influence on development.
There’s also a difference between saying “Make it faster” and “It needs to do this, because I feel it doing this right now.”
Guess which one is more difficult? Guess which one Hamilton does?
So, yeah, Hamilton is great lol.
